The University is aware that caring may have financial implications with students experiencing higher travel costs and or find
themselves less able to work part time to supplement their student finance awards.
To help ease some of these financial worries Bangor University offers unpaid student carers with an annual bursary of up to £1,000 from the University's Hardship Fund.
A Carer is Someone who looks after a member of the family, partner or friend with a physical or sensory disability, learning disability, medical condition, mental health issues or someone addicted to drugs, alcohol or gambling.
(Please note that these duties would be in addition to the usual caring responsibilities that a parent would have for a dependent child.)
To apply contact the Money Support Unit for an application form.
- Return the completed form with evidence from a professional person, who is aware of the family’s situation and your caring responsibility.
- If you were previously in receipt of Carers Allowance, we will need evidence from the Department of Work & Pensions that this has now ceased.
If you are carer who are paid a salary for your caring duties or are in receipt of Carers Allowance we regret that you are not eligible for this bursary.
