Carers Bursary

Type of Award: Bursary
Year of Entry: 2024/25
Value: £500
Study Level: Undergraduate, Postgraduate taught


We offer a range of support and services to help all students, but especially if you need a little extra assistance, because you are a carer for someone. Support offered includes a Bursary and a Carers Support Plan so that academics are aware of the circumstances and adjustments can be implemented if required. The bursary will be paid as a lump sum in one instalment for that year.

Once you have enrolled onto your course you may access the online application on the Student Hub.

You will need to provide evidence of your circumstances. The deadline for applying is 9 months after the start of the academic year in which you apply to your course, e.g. if your course starts in September, you need to apply before the end of May of that academic year.
