2015 entry students

Warwick Undergraduate Scholarships and Bursaries form a generous programme of non-repayable support to help ensure that a Warwick degree is accessible to all academically talented people regardless of family income. Awards are intended to help with course-related costs.

Am I eligible?

To qualify for an award, you must fulfil the following criteria:

  • Be a home student enrolled on your first, full-time (inc. 2+2) undergraduate course at Warwick which is starting in October 2015
  • Have a family income as assessed by Student Finance England at below £35,001
  • Be in receipt of a tuition fee loan and a maintenance grant or special support grant
  • Not be entitled to any other statutory support in the form of a grant or fee waiver for your course
  • For your sixth form education have been educated at a state school or college in England or received a full fee paying means-tested bursary at an Independent School in England or a partial means tested bursary which is clearly indicative of an annual family income below £25,001 a year

How will I be paid?

Warwick Bursaries will be paid directly into the same bank account that your student loan and grants are paid into so there is no need to notify us of your bank details. You will receive an instalment each term of about a third of the yearly total. Your confirmation email will let you know the amounts and payment dates.

What if I withdraw from my course or my household income changes during the academic year?

This may have implications for your Warwick Bursary. Please contact us to discuss your individual circumstances by emailing studentfunding at warwick dot ac dot uk.

Is there any other support available?

Additional support will be offered to students going abroad under the Erasmus scheme (who meet the bursary criteria and whose family incomes are less than or equal to £25,000) to cover the amount of fees charged for that Erasmus year (£1,350). You will be advised of any fee waiver by separate email shortly before the start of the academic year.
