University of Bristol bursary

The University of Bristol bursary was introduced as part of the University's agreement with the Office for Fair Access (OFFA). It is the main additional financial support provided to undergraduate students at the University of Bristol.

In 2017/18 the University will award a bursary of up to £2,000 to eligible students.

  • Eligible students whose household income is £25,000 or below receive the maximum £2,000 bursary.
  • The maximum qualifying household income will be £42,875, where students will receive the minimum bursary of £500.
  • For other bursary levels, see the information under 'value of award'.

In 2018/19 we intend to offer the University of Bristol bursary as above. The amounts will be confirmed in due course.

Students who have 'graduated' from the Access to Bristol or Bristol Scholars schemes, who are starting their studies from 2017 and who meet the eligibility criteria will be entitled to those financial support packages instead of the University of Bristol bursary.
