  • Eligibility requirement:
  • Bucks New University will be making available 100 individual scholarships of up to £3,000 for new students starting year 1 of their course from September 2016 onwards. Recipients will be entitled to a financial award of up to £1,000 in their first, second and third years of study (up to a maximum of three years in total). Please be aware that there are a limited number of scholarships available and even if you meet the basic and additional eligibility criteria this will not guarantee your entitlement to an award. The BSP is a scholarship designed to provide a direct benefit to individual students from England and the European Union who come from low income backgrounds and is intended to support the progression of students from groups currently under-represented in higher education. All funds are provided by the University. Who is eligible to apply - Students are eligible to apply for a scholarship if their declared residual household income is £25,000 per annum or less, if they are entering university for the first time, have firmly accepted an offer of a place at Bucks, have applied for Student Finance and will be paying tuition fees in excess of £6,000 per annum (pro-rata for part-time students). We therefore regret that we are unable to consider applications from the following groups of students: students ordinarily resident in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, students paying the international tuition fee, NHS-funded students, students directly continuing from one course to another (e.g. those progressing to the final year of a degree programme from a foundation degree or an HND), students transferring in from another institution, students studying for a qualification that is equivalent to or less than the one they have already achieved, students undertaking a post-graduate qualification, students whose fees are paid or part-paid through a sponsorship arrangement. Part-time students are entitled to receive a Bucks Scholarship award on a pro-rata basis as long as they are completing a course with at least 25% intensity of a full time programme. Please note that BSP awards are available only to those students who qualify for student support under the current Education (Student Support) Regulations. What allocation criteria will be used - Scholarships will be awarded based on the merit of each individual application and in addition to the household income criterion; consideration will be given to a range of supporting factors including: previously looked after children, those leaving care and young carers, students from areas that have low participation in higher education as classified by the POLAR3 postcode measure, students with a declared disability, students having attended one of our widening participation partner schools and colleges. How does the Bucks' scholarship programme work - Bucks is committed to ensuring that all eligible students are given advice appropriate to their individual circumstances. On confirmation of an award, you will have an opportunity to speak to, or meet with, a student adviser to discuss your individual package. Recipients will be able to receive the award in a way that best meets their circumstances choosing from any mixture of the below options: course fee discount, discounted accommodation and cash bursary.
  • Application details:
  • The deadline for receiving applications is 1 August 2016. However, we will be happy to consider applications after this date should scholarships still be available.
