Students are encouraged to explore their options for funding support while studying at Birkbeck. The university has a financial support scheme for undergraduate students enrolling on new full-time and part-time degree programmes. The scheme includes a range of support services to help applicants prepare financially for a course, and to assist with any financial issues that may be experienced throughout the academic year.
The Birkbeck cash bursary scheme (UK/EU students) helps students with the costs of study for those on a degree with a foundation year or undertaking a part-time certificate of higher education or part-time foundation degree. Assistance includes purchasing books, printing and travelling to lectures.
Students currently enrolled may also be eligible for hardship funds, depending on their economic circumstances, and students are encouraged to check the university website to familiarise themselves with key eligibility requirements and application dates.
Birkbeck also offers a 10% discount on tuition fees for postgraduate applicants who completed their undergraduate degree at the university, and for prospective students who are members of a union that is recognised by the TUC, although these discounts may not be combined.
Further details are available via the university’s Student Advice Service.
