Need Financial Assistance? Bucks Offers Scholarships to Our Students

Higher education is getting more and more expensive, but the good news for our students is that Bucks is a participant in the Government's National Scholarship Programme (NSP). The University is making available 100 individual scholarships worth up to £3,000 for students starting in year 1 of their course, from September 2015.

What kind of support is available?
Recipients will be entitled to a financial support package of £1,000 in their first year of study and £1,000 in each of their subsequent years of study (up to a maximum of three years in total).

Who is elegible?
In general, these scholarships are targeted towards less well-off students and those from minority backgrounds.

Is it worth applying?
Yes! There are a limited number of scholarships available but it is always worth applying. The worst that can happen is they say no.

What is the deadline?
The deadline to apply is 30 June 2015.

How do you apply?

Free laptops for all our freshers
What other financial assistance does Bucks offer?
On the Animation and Visual Effects course, all our students get a free laptop. The reason for this simple - we want our students to be capable of doing work from home, taking on small freelance jobs before they leave University. We recognise that most students can't afford a laptop - so we give them one for free.
The Bucks Big Deal - free stuff for our students
In addition, the Bucks Big Deal offers a wide range of benefits to our students. The idea behind the Big Deal is to make sure that there are no unexpected expenses facing students on our courses. No hidden fees, and no nasty surprises.

We offer other stuff too, like a free subscription to the digital learning site Again, this makes sense for us because we want all our students to have access to the very latest software. Need a tutorial in After Effects? Look no further. You can study not just on campus, but at home, or on the weekends.

We also have hundreds of videos on animation and visual effects specially recorded for our own students, hosted at Vimeo. Missed something in class? No problem, just watch the videos in your own time. And to get a flavour of what it's like to study at Bucks, check out our (very silly) video below.
