Study Abroad Bursary
UWE Bristol students undertaking a three to twelve-month study abroad programme with a partner institution outside Europe will be eligible for a UWE Bristol Study Abroad Bursary.
You must have been selected for exchange and have been nominated to your host institution before making a bursary application. All students who are selected for a study abroad programme outside Europe will be eligible for the Study Abroad Bursary. However, the required forms and other documentation must be completed and returned by the stated deadlines in order to access the funding.
Bursary rates for 2015-16 are £500 per semester, or £1,000 for the full academic year. These are likely to be reviewed for future years.
Bursaries are usually paid directly into the student's UK bank account in two instalments – 70% on confirmation of your arrival at your placement, and 30% on confirmation of the placement’s successful completion.
Students will be required to complete various items of paperwork to be eligible for the full funding. This will include:
- a grant agreement, confirming the terms and conditions of the funding
- a learning agreement, confirming what you will studied (signed by your host and your UWE department)
- a certificate of arrival
- a certificate of departure
- a report on your experience.
Failure to complete the required documentation accurately and in a timely manner may result in delayed or withheld funding.
