BGU Bursary

The BGU Bursary is an additional source of funding available to full-time students

BGU Bursary 2019/20

The BGU Bursary is an additional source of funding available to full-time students. All eligible students studying in 2019/20 will receive a BGU Bursary (which replaces the BGU Learning Grant available in previous academic years).

Criteria

Students must satisfy the following criteria in order to qualify for the BGU Bursary:

Basic Award:

  • Studying a full-time undergraduate course which began on or after 1st September 2012 with a minimum fee of £6,000
  • Have a household income (as assessed by an awarding authority such as Student Finance England) of £30,000 or less

Students satisfying these conditions will be awarded a Bursary at the following rates according to the programme of study on which they are enrolled:

 £0 – £25,000   £25,001 – £30,000 
 FdA   £415.00  £208
 BA or BSc (Hons)   £550.00  £275

Payments are made in three instalments, usually in November (25%), February (25%) and April (50%)

Additional amounts may be available if you are:

  • A mature student (aged 21 or over at the start of your course): £100
  • A student parent: £150
  • Up to 20 years old from a Low Participation Neighbourhood: £150

Care Leavers:
Students who can provide evidence of care leaver status (see our Care Leavers section for more details) can apply for an enhanced BGU Bursary. This provides an annual amount of £3,600, designed to remove the need for students from care to apply for the Maintenance Loan from the Student Loans Company (although they remain eligible to apply for the loan if they wish to do so).

Please ensure you provide evidence of your care leaver status to Student Advice. Once you have provided it, we will process an enhanced bursary for you in the same way that we process the standard awards.

Stand Alone Bursary

BGU’s Stand Alone Bursary is a £1,000 Bursary for students who are irreconcilably estranged from their parents. This funding is aimed at supporting estranged students with additional funds they might require to secure accommodation during their studies.

Please ensure you provide evidence of your estranged status to Student Advice. Once you have provided it, we will process the Stand Alone bursary for you in the same way that we process the standard awards.”

Carers Bursary

A carer is someone who provides unpaid care to a partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour who could not manage without this help because of frailty, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.
Students with caring responsibilities are eligible for a bursary of £1000 (once appropriate evidence has been received).


How to Apply:

Standard Awards:

  • Make an application for your core funding (Loans/Grants) via Student Finance England (or SFW, SFNI, SAAS for the rest of the UK)
  • Indicate you wish to share your information with your University in order to be considered for bursaries (look out for this check box when filling in your application)
  • Ensure anyone supporting your application with household income information (e.g. your parent(s) or partner) also agrees for their information to be shared with the University
  • Await confirmation of your BGU Bursary – usually in October
  • Receive payment – payments are made in three instalments in November (25%), February (25%) and April (50%)

If you are unsure whether you have done this, you should contact SFE (or its alternative for Wales, N. Ireland and Scotland). If you qualify for a BGU Bursary, we will contact you by email. You will receive a payment from the BGU Bursary in each term (subject to your continued attendance on the programme), paid directly to the bank account you use for your student loan/grant.


For more information or if you are unsure about your options please contact our Student Advice team on studentadvice@bishopg.ac.uk or phone 01522 583600.
