Coronavirus - financial support
We understand that you may have been financially impacted by the coronavirus. Please read our financial guidance during Covid-19 page. There is financial support available if you are now facing financial difficulty as a result and can evidence this - the BU and Santander Covid-19 Support Fund is open to all BU students.
If you are in need of further financial support please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01202 969696 for more information. The team is available between 10am-4pm, Monday to Friday.
BU is here to help if you require financial support. This could be helping you resolve problems with your funding provider, for example Student Finance England or the NHS, help with managing your money, or you are in financial difficulty and require additional funding.
BU offers a range of bursaries, undergraduate scholarships and postgraduate scholarships to students. There are also various types of financial support funding available from BU including the Small Emergency Grant, Emergency Loan, Placement Opportunity Fund and the BU Financial Support Fund.
In addition to mainstream government and BU funds, it is possible to receive further support from external trusts, charities and grants. BU subscribes to a funding database specifically for those looking for funding to support postgraduate studies, called The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding. The guide is free for all current BU students and staff - log in to The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding Online. Even if you are an undergraduate student, you may find the guide useful.
Please note: Financial help can be based on circumstances and you may not be entitled to all funding help options.
