University bursary scheme information and support University bursary scheme information and support

As part of a broad commitment to help ensure tuition fees do not pose a barrier to students aspiring to apply to a world leading university, UEA offers a bursary scheme to support students in their studies.

What is a university bursary?

Bursaries are offered to support students based on household income or social factors.

Students do not need to formally apply for bursary support, all UK students are automatically considered using household income information received from Student Finance England (EU students will need to request this assessment). Eligible students will be contacted from the September of the course start date. Bursaries cannot be combined (but you can receive both a bursary and a scholarship if eligible).

Support is on a fee pro-rata basis for those students paying half fees or less. Bursaries cannot be combined, for example, if a student is a care leaver, they will be eligible for a £2,500 bursary only.
