Start-Up Bursaries

Start Up Bursaries of £1,000 are available to those students entering the University from care, former Foyer residents or those who were homeless immediately prior to starting their studies.

The start-up bursaries are intended to cover course related costs such as books, equipment, travel and study aids. These are one-off, non-repayable bursaries which will be paid in the first year only. 

For information and about the support provided to Care Leavers at Bangor University and the contact details for the Care Leavers Adviser,  visit the following website:


  • To be eligible for any of the bursaries offered by Bangor you must complete the student finance application form – this is the method used to assess eligibility for student loans, maintenance grants etc, and in the same way your eligibility for the bursaries offered will be assessed on the basis of this form.
  • Bursary payments will be administered and distributed by the Student Loans Company on behalf of the University – so you must complete the student finance application form* to be able to receive a bursary payment from Bangor University.

*Students from the EU should contact the Money Adviser for guidance on bursary assessment procedures, e-mail:
