What is an LJMU bursary?Many LJMU students benefit from our generous bursary scheme. Bursaries are a bit like grants – they are means tested and you don’t have to pay them back. You can use the money for whatever you wish; they are intended to help you with the cost of being a student.
How will I know if I am eligible?LJMU bursaries are paid automatically to eligible students – you do not need to apply for them. However, you must meet our specified criteria which are linked to:-
- Residency – only home students; EU or international students are not eligile for the LJMU bursary.
- Your tuition fees. To be considered for a bursary you have to be paying the maximum of either £3,465 if you are a student that started prior to 1st September 2012 or £9,000 for new students.
- You must have made arrangements to pay your fees, either by loan, yourself, your parents or another sponsor and adhered to the arrangements.
- Students studying for an Equivalent or lower Qualification (ELQ) are not eligible for an LJMU bursary.
- Bursaries are normally non-repayable.
- You must be enrolled and attending your course and you will be asked to confirm your attendance at various times throughout the year.
- Students paying a reduced fee because they are in their year in industry or repeating some or all of their course are not eligible.
What bursaries are available?
If you have started your course after 1st September 2011 and your household income is £25,000 or less per year you will qualify for a bursary of £500 for each year of your course.
Please note: Different income thresholds apply for students that started pre September 2011.
You are not eligible for a bursary, if you are:
- studying an NHS programme (because your fees paid)
- you are studying for an Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ)
- or you are on sandwich year or year abroad.
