Big Deal bursaries

You have probably heard about the Big Deal and the Big Deal on Course at Bucks New University, we've set aside some money to help second and third year students meet the costs of study tours and placements to ensure they do not miss out on a valuable opportunity.

The below bursaries are available to all full-time students who are in receipt of a maintenance grant from Student Finance and paying tuition fees in excess of £6,000. All applications should be submitted for consideration by 31 May 2017. Only one award is permitted per fund per year and all awards are capped at a maximum of £500 per academic year.

Please download the application form here.

Study Tour Bursary
You may be eligible for a bursary of up to £250 to cover the cost of any study tours related to your course. The university will look to cover a proportion of the cost of the study tour with any shortfall being made up by the student.  All awards are dependent upon your household income and maintenance grant award.  Please note that awards may not cover the full cost of your study tour.

Placement Travel Bursary
You can apply for a work placement travel bursary of up to £250 to help you cover the cost of travelling to a domestic (UK) placement that you have secured during your studies. The amount you are awarded is again dependent upon your household income and maintenance grant award.  Please note that awards may not cover the full cost of your travel expenses.

Erasmus students can find further information about financial help available for participating in placements by visiting the Erasmus section or emailing erasmus@bucks.ac.uk.
