Queen Mary University of London Bursaries

In 2006 Queen Mary University of London introduced a package of bursaries to assist undergraduate students who are in most need of financial support with the costs of being a student in higher education.
         
The amount of the bursary you receive each year will depend on your household income which is assessed during your application for UK government student finance.

If you are eligible to receive a QMUL bursary you will not have to repay it.

Please note that all international students and those EU nationals who are only eligible for a tuition fee loan will not be eligible for a QMUL bursary.

Medicine and Dentistry students are eligible for the QMUL Bursary when in years where tuition fees are funded by a student loan or yourself; students in NHS funded years are not eligible for the QMUL bursary. 

Applying for the bursary for 2017-18

You do not need to make a separate application for the QMUL bursary. To receive a QMUL bursary you must have applied to your regional student funding authority for income assessed UK government financial support for higher education students. The regional student funding authorities are:

Student Finance England
Student Finance Wales
Student Finance Northern Ireland
Student Awards Agency for Scotland

When you do so, you will be asked to give your consent to your information being shared with the university you will join. If your sponsors/parents are submitting financial details about themselves as part of your application, they will also be asked to give their consent. It is important that this consent is given so that we can view these details to decide whether your assessed household income means you qualify for a QMUL bursary.

If you are applying for student support for the first time you also need to ensure that your regional student funding authority has verified your information, finalised your financial assessment and confirmed this to you and the Student Loans Company before we can assess you for a bursary. If your student finance assessment is still provisional please contact Student Finance England to enquire why.

The final date that we will assess you for a bursary is 31 July 2018 and it is your responsibility to ensure that we receive all the relevant information from Student Finance England by this date.

Receiving the bursary

When you have been assessed for a bursary you will receive an award letter, you will be sent an email confirmation asking you to login in to 'Your Correspondence' on the Student Finance online portal. The letter will detail the amount of money you are due to receive and the dates it is due to go into your bank account. It will also detail the bank account where the money will be paid. This is the account your student loan maintenance payments are made to and should you wish to amend this, you will need to contact the number on the letter. 

The amount of bursary you may be eligible for is determined by the student funding cohort you are in. This is usually determined by when you started your current course, but if you have previously withdrawn, suspended or transferred from a higher education course prior to starting your current course you might be covered by the bursary rules for the year in which you started in higher education.
