University of Surrey bursaries.

In order to be eligible for a Surrey Bursary your household income must meet all of the criteria, you must be a UK or EU student and must be paying the full tuition fees (therefore NHS-funded students and students who are being funded are not eligible).

You must also have correctly filled out and submitted your application to Student Finance England/Student Finance European Team for a loan and must also make sure that you and your parent/guardian have given your consent to share the information with the University.

Please note that the scheme detailed below is subject to OFFA (Office for Fair Access) approval and therefore our bursary schemes may change in order to meet regulations. We currently anticipate offering the following to students commencing their studies at Surrey in October 2016:

Full Surrey Award

Students with a household income of less than £25,000 and who are resident in POLAR* postcodes 1 – 2

* POLAR (Participation of Local Areas) is a HEFCE classification for the participation in higher education by young people by geographical area in the UK. It’s used to measure the widening participation performance of universities.

The award of £3,000 for eligible recipients will be paid as follows:

Where the recipient is living on campus, the bursary will be paid against their accommodation fees.

Cash payments will only apply where the recipient is not living on campus.

Applicable in the first year of study and for subsequent years where a student progresses normally on their programme, but excluding the Professional Training Year or repeat periods of study.
