Students from the following groups will be considered for funding as the first priority.
- Students with an annual household income of £25,000 or less (as assessed and verified by Student Finance England or other UK student funding provider).
- Students receiving Universal Credit or income-related benefits because they are financially supporting themselves or financially supporting themselves and someone who is dependent on them and living with them, such as a child or partner.
- Care leavers and students who are care-experienced. This refers to anyone who has been or is currently in care or from a looked after background at any stage of their life, no matter how short, including adopted children who were previously looked after or those who access the Care Experienced Bursary in Scotland.
- Students who have caring responsibilities. A carer is anyone who has a commitment to providing unpaid care to a family member or friend who could not cope without their support.
- Estranged Students - those who are irreconcilably estranged from their parent(s). To be considered irreconcilably estranged, the student won’t have had any written or verbal contact with either parent – usually for 12 months or more - and this is unlikely to change.
- Refugees and asylum seekers.
Please note as part of the group 2 - 6 above you will be asked to provide official proof of your circumstances.
Remaining funding will then be allocated to students in priority 2.
Students with an annual household income of £42,611 or less (as assessed and verified by Student Finance England or other UK student funding provider).
Any remaining funding will then be allocated based on students first year mark (highest grade).
