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.
There is mainstream funding available for undergraduate and postgraduate students from the relevant government funding bodies depending on whether you meet the eligibility criteria. As well as NHS funding for students on eligible nursing, midwifery and allied health courses.
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.
