Financial Support, Bursaries & Scholarships

We recognise that sometimes you may need a little support. At Bucks, we are proud to be a friendly and inclusive university and offer a package of scholarships and bursaries to make sure that everyone can reach their potential.

Scholarships and bursaries are financial grants which support specific students and you won’t need to pay anything back. Find out below if you could be eligible.

The important information – our terms and conditions

All decisions on bursaries and scholarships are final and all our bursaries exclude repeat years.

For our bursaries:

  • You must be studying at our High Wycombe, Uxbridge or Aylesbury campuses (please see individual eligibility criteria)
  • You need to select Bucks as your unconditional firm offer
  • You must have Student Finance funding or provide evidence that your application is in progress/awaiting confirmation

For financial assistance, such as the Bucks Hardship Fund or Short Term Loans, students can be studying both full-time and part-time.

Students are limited to one bursary per year of study, however they are eligible to apply for additional financial support including short term loans or the Bucks Hardship Fund.

The bursary will be removed immediately if:

  • a student withdraws from a programme of study
  • a student is suspended or excluded from the University
  • a student has made any misrepresentation or acted fraudulently or dishonestly.
