BNU offers a varied package of scholarships and bursaries to students who meet certain eligibility criteria. This extra funding is to help pay for the cost of living and studying and doesn’t need to be paid back.
For example, the Care Leaver Bursary is for students who have left a care home environment and is worth £1,000 per year, as well as accommodation all year round, help with your uni application and a mentor while studying. The Estranged Student Bursary offers the same benefits for students who have become estranged from their families.
Other groups that can benefit from financial support at BNU include asylum seekers, refugees and members of the Gypsy, Traveller and Roma communities. There’s also a BNU Success Bursary which is worth £1,000 per year for students from low-income families, areas with high levels of deprivation or an area where not many students go to uni.
