Pre-2012 UWE Bursary
Answers to popular questions about the UWE Bursary for continuing students who started their course before 2012 and who are liable for tuition fees of £3,465.
Am I eligible for a UWE Bursary?
Students who started their course prior to 2012 will continue to be eligible for the Pre-2012 UWE Bursary of £1,000.
This includes students who are:
- immediately 'topping-up' from a foundation degree to an honours degree and/or
- transferring from another institution and/or
- returning from a suspension of studies.
You must be registered on a full-time designated programme, be in a full-time mode of attendance (ie studying 90 credits or more) with tuition fees of £3,465.
Students funded by Student Finance for England (SFE), Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales are eligible. If you are on an NHS-funded healthcare programme, you are not eligible for the Pre-2012 UWE Bursary as the NHS pays your tuition fees.
You must also be classed as a UK resident (or 'home') student. This means that you are entitled to receive living cost funding and will include most UK nationals. If you are not sure whether you are a UK resident student, please check the full explanation on the UKCISA website.
When and how will my Pre-2012 Bursary be paid?
I need a letter confirming my Bursary entitlement as I am applying for help with NHS charges.
To request a letter, lease email the Bursary Team quoting your student number along with your address details and we will produce your letter. If you require a letter before the start of December we will only be able to provide provisional information.
