In the 2013/14 academic year:
222 National Scholarship Programme (NSP) awards - £3000 discount off the cost of full-time undergraduate tuition fees, for the first year of study only. Note: there are a limited number of scholarships available and these are allocated on a strictly first-come, first served basis.
A national government scheme funds half of this fee waiver, the rest being funded by UCB. You must be eligible to receive funding from Student Finance England, your household income (as calculated by Student Finance England) must be £16,000 or below and you must have never previously studied at HE level. NSP awards are limited and allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
Applicants must have accepted an offer of a place on a full-time taught programme at UCB and the chosen programme must be a foundation or bachelors degree.
Do not complete the UCB scholarship form. Instead, applicants must complete in full the Student Finance England online application form using their household income www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance. There are no other means of application for this NSP.
UCB will use the data, supplied by the Student Loans Company to identify the first 222 eligible applicants in 2013/14. (This number was 98 in 2012/13).
The number of eligible students is expected to considerably exceed the number of scholarships available, so the earliest of applications is recommended.
