Bursaries

Things to remember...

  • You could be awarded a Merit Scholarship, or any other of Bangor's Entrance Scholarships, in addition to any bursary payment/s you are eligible for.
  • To be eligible for any of the bursaries offered by Bangor you must complete the Application for Student Finance (PN1) form- this is the method used to assess eligibility for student loans, maintenance grants etc, and your eligibility for any of the bursaries will be assessed on the basis of the same form.
  • Bursaries will only be available to full-time, undergraduate students who are paying the full fee of £9,000, and registered and in attendance 14 days prior to the particular bursary payment date.
  • Students in receipt of other bursary payments (e.g. NHS, Health & Social Care Council) will not be eligible for the bursaries scheme.
  • Bursary payments will be administered and distributed by the Student Loans Company on behalf of the University - so you must complete the Application for Student Finance (PN1) form to be able to receive a bursary payment from Bangor.

Other Sources of Funding

There are many government and non-government organisations that provide scholarship schemes enabling international students to source funding to study at a UK university. Students should contact the Ministry of Education or Education Department in their country, as they should have details of scholarship opportunities for students wishing to study overseas. They will also be able to advise the government’s conditions for studying abroad. Students should also contact the British Council office in the country of origin, which should have details of British scholarship schemes. If there is no British Council office in the country, then the nearest British Embassy or High Commission should be contacted.
