£500 University Centre at Blackburn College bonus for full-time students
£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.
To be initially eligible, you must meet the following criteria:
- Satisfy the attendance criteria of 90% attendance or above (did you know that students awarded a First Class Honours had attendance that was on average above 93%).
- Be a full-time Higher Education student in 2018/19 paying fees above the basic full time fee level (£6,000 for 2018/19)
Once your initial eligibility has been determined, you will be scheduled to receive the bursary in two installments: £250 at the end of semester 1 and £250 at the end of semester 2 PROVIDED you meet continuing eligibility requirements. The payments will be subject to satisfactory attendance and satisfactory progress checked periodically during the year. Satisfactory attendance will be determined based on records of student attendance in class registers checked periodically. If, when checked, your attendance is below 90% of classes in the checking period you risk not receiving a payment.
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.
