For those from the UK (excluding Wales - please see information about Maintenance Grant) and the EU, the Bangor Bursary means you could receive up to £3,000 in extra financial help over the duration of a three-year course.
Bangor Bursaries are available on top of any loans and other University bursaries you may be eligible for. Your eligibility for a Bangor Bursary depends on:
- your household income: all those with a household income below £40,000 will get a bursary of either £1,000 or £500 a year from the University and
- the course you are studying; you must be studying on a full-time undergraduate course (please note, students in receipt of other bursary payments e.g. NHS, Health & Social Care Council will not be eligible for the Bangor Bursary scheme) with a tuition fee of £9,000 payable to Bangor University.
The bursaries are available to students from the UK (excluding Wales - please see information about Maintenance Grant) and the EU and do not have to be paid back. Students from the EU should contact the Money Adviser for guidance on bursary assessment procedures.
Your eligibility for a Bangor Bursary will be assessed as part of the statutory means test carried out by the Student Loans Company, when you complete the student finance application form. This means that you will not have to apply directly to the University for a Bangor Bursary – you will automatically receive it provided you are in receipt of a full or partial maintenance grant.
- If your household income is below £25,000 you will receive a Bangor Bursary of £1,000 a year.
- If your household income is between £25,000 and £40,000 you will receive a Bangor Bursary of £500 a year.
- As you need to complete the student finance application form every year, then the amount of Bangor Bursary you may be eligible for may also change from year to year.
- Depending on household income and the subject area studied, some PGCE students will also be eligible to receive Bangor Bursaries. This will apply to PGCE students with a household income below £40,000 who are not eligible for ITT training grants.
How will the bursary be assessed?
Your eligibility for a Bangor Bursary is determined through the statutory means test carried out either by Student Finance Wales or Student Finance England, when you complete the on-line form PN1. This means that you won’t need to apply to the University for a Bangor Bursary. If eligible, a confirmation letter will be sent to your home address in February 2019. Bursary payments are made from the 1st March 2019 onwards.
As you need to complete the Student Finance assessment forms every year, the amount of Bangor bursary you may be eligible for may change from year to year.
Students from the EU are asked to contact the Money Advice Unit for guidance on bursary assessment procedures. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
