Supported Progression Bursaries (2018/19 Entry)
This information is for home undergraduates progressing from the Supported Progression Programme only.
Eligibility and Grant Amounts
Home undergraduates who progressed from the Supported Progression Bursary programme and who started their studies in 2018/19 are entitled to a Supported Progression Bursary of up to £2,000 in 2020/21.
You get your Supported Progression Bursary as well as your government funding and you don't have to pay it back.
If you are living in College accommodation your Supported Progression Bursary will be deducted from the cost of your College accommodation. You will pay the remainder of your College accommodation in three equal termly instalments (you will receive an invoice showing the original amount of your College accommodation, the amount of your Supported Progression Bursary as a deduction and the amount you have left to pay towards the cost of your College accommodation).
If you are not living in College accommodation your Supported Progression Bursary will be paid into your bank account in three equal termly instalments on the last day of each term.
You will only receive your payments if you are a fully registered student of the University on a set "trigger date" each term. You will stop being a fully registered student if you suspend your studies or if you withdraw from your studies.
