What kind of financial assistance is on offer?
Bucks is offering 19 postgraduate bursaries worth £10,000 each.
Who is eligible?
The bursaries are available for students who paid the higher rate undergraduate tuition fee (applicable from September 2012 onwards) and who are due to graduate in the summer of 2015.
How much money is available?
A minimum of £5,000 will be allocated towards course fees, with recipients being able to choose how they receive the remaining £5,000; either as a cash bursary or a further fee discount.
Who can apply?
Awards are restricted to full-time and part-time students from the UK or EU who are progressing directly from an undergraduate course to a postgraduate course in the 2015-16 academic year.
Who gets priority?
Priority for awards will be given to those students who are currently under-represented at postgraduate level; these include:
- students from low performing socio-economic backgrounds or areas
- students who are the first in their family to attend university and or/continue on to postgraduate study
- students with a disability that would normally make it difficult to continue to postgraduate study
- students from a background that is under-represented within a specific discipline.
A full list of eligible courses is available on the Bucks website at http://bucks.ac.uk/pgbursary.
