We offer three different types of bursary at the University Centre West Anglia and the majority of our students are entitled to at least one.

  • Global Scholarship Bursary

    The Global Scholarship bursary is a payment of £200. All students who meet the below criteria are entitled to the Global Scholarship Bursary.

  • Low Income Bursary

    If your household income is less than £25,000 per annual year, you can receive a low income cash bursary of up to £600.

  • Mid Income Bursary

    If your household income is above £25,000 but less than £42,600 per annual year, you can receive a bursary of up to £200.

Please note that all of the above amounts are pro-rata for part-time students. All payments are made in two equal instalments, in November and February.

To be eligible for the above you must be:

  • Regularly attending your course
  • Paying the full tuition fee for the academic year
  • Studying on an undergraduate course fundable by the Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE)

Whilst no application is necessary, if you are interested in either of the income-based bursaries, you will need to agree to share your household income information when applying for student finance.
