£500 Study Bonus
£500 Bonus for Full-time Eligible Students
Full time undergraduate students will be offered a bonus worth £500 per year provided they meet initial and continuing eligibility requirements.
- All new full time HE students who started study after the 2016/17 academic years who are paying the £7,500 or £8,250 fee
- Students must be studying on the undergraduate programme full time paying the £7,500 or £8,250 fee
- Students who are fully funded by their employer/sponsor are not eligible
Payments will be subject to satisfactory attendance and satisfactory progress. Satisfactory attendance will be determined based on records of student attendance in registers using a centre-wide formula determined by Higher Education Management Team (HEM) and approved at the commencement of the academic year.
Eligibility for any award will cease if a student is no longer in ‘good standing’ with the College, (e.g. as a result of non-payment of fees, poor attendance, repeatedly missing submission deadlines, disciplinary action, etc.). In addition, for clarity, no bursary will be paid to a student unless payment has been received by the College for the respective proportion of their fee at the time the bursary instalment is paid. e.g. for a bursary paid in three instalments, in order for the first instalment to be paid 25% of fee must be paid, for the second instalment 50% and the final instalment 100%.
Students returning to repeat a full time year of study and paying the £7,500 or £8,250 tuition fee will be reviewed by a Senior Post-holder who will make the decision whether to award the bursary on a case by case basis.
Because of the initial and continuing eligibility criteria, you must not make any financial plans in which you assume you will receive this bursary until you actually receive a payment.
Note that no individual member of staff in the College is able to tell you whether or not you will be eligible, or continue to be eligible, as this matter is determined by a panel. Because of the initial and continuing eligibility criteria, you must not make any financial plans in which you assume you will receive this bonus until you actually receive a payment.
Additional terms and conditions may apply. See Bursaries and Scholarships Policy, 2020-2021 for more information.
This fund forms part of the Blackburn College ‘Hardship’ offer as prescribed by Government.
