The St Mary's Bursary

£1,000 (Paid over three years)

  • Year One: £500
  • Year Two: £300 
  • Year Three: £200

A bursary of £1,000, paid as cash over three years, is available to all full-time undergraduate students with a household income of less than £25,000 (as verified by the Student Finance assessment).

To be eligible to apply for a St Mary’s Bursary students must:

  • Have an assessed annual household income below £25,000 - your consent to share must be activated on your Student Finance England account before 30th November 2017, and
  • Have been offered a place on a full-time or part-time (minimum intensity of 25% of full-time degree) undergraduate degree course or foundation degree course, and
  • Be ordinarily resident in the UK or the EU at the start of their course, and
  • Have completed an Application for Student Support through the relevant awarding authority and agree that their financial information can be shared with St Mary's University, and
  • Make or have made St Mary's University a firm choice, and
  • Register on an undergraduate or foundation degree course at St Mary's University starting in September 2017
  • Be entering on a university-level course for the first time.

Students who register on a part-time undergraduate or foundation degree course will receive a bursary pro-rata to the percentage of full-time study at each level of the course.

If you are a UK or an EU student joining in September 2017 on full-time undergraduate course, you may be eligible for a St Mary's Bursary. You do not need to make a formal application for the bursary, but you have to have a means tested application for Student Support through the relevant awarding authority and agree that your financial information can be shared with St Mary's University.

St Mary's will check your eligibility against the criteria listed above and based on the information you supplied during the application process to Student Loan Company. These checks will take place in early December 2017. In some cases, further verification may be required and we will write or email to notify you of this.

Appeals are judged on a case by case basis and students who are concerned about their Student Finance assessment are encouraged to contact St Mary's Student Funding Service.
