Am I eligible?
The City, University of London Bursary is offered to undergraduate Home students who receive the full maintenance grant of £2,906 and who are paying tuition fees of £3,375. NHS-funded students, EU and international students are not eligible for the City Bursary.
How will I be paid?
You need to provide your bank details to Student Finance England. The bursary will be paid direct into this account, the same account that your Student Loan and/or Maintenance Grant will be paid into. You will be paid the bursary in two equal instalments:
- Early October (or two weeks after Student Finance's assessment if later than October) and
- End of February.
How do I apply?
There is no separate application form. When you apply for student support through Student Finance England (or your regional assessor), you will be considered for the bursary at the same time. There will be a consent to share statement as part of your declaration in the Student Finance application. You should receive a confirmation letter about your bursary by mid September. If you do not and you have been assessed as receiving the full maintenance grant, then please contact the Student Centre.
Consent to share
If you think that you are entitled to a bursary but have not yet received one, it could be because you or your parents have not consented to share your personal information with City. This can be done by contacting the Consent to Share Helpline on 0845 603 4016 and agreeing to share your information over the telephone. Please note that your parents or sponsor will also have to contact the helpline.
