University Of Greenwich Bursaries

Bursaries available in 2017-18

Greenwich Scholarship Programme (GSP)

This scheme will be available to new undergraduate honours degree students only paying fees at the home rate starting a programme of study with us in 2017-18 whose programme fees are over £6,165 for full-time students and over £4,624 for part-time students (where the part-time fee is pro-rata to a full-time fee of over £6165 and is at least over £4624 for study of 90 credits). Further eligibility criteria will apply and this will be published shortly.

The Greenwich Scholarship Programme will be paid to a capped number of eligible students in the first year of study only and consist of £1,000 fee waiver and £1,000 credited to an Aspire@Greenwich card. Part-time eligible students will receive a pro-rata fee waiver only, subject to the number of credits that they are taking in year one of study only.

Students who are also eligible for the £200 Aspire@Greenwich bursary for learning resources as detailed below will not receive the £200 as an addition to the £1,000. Students eligible for the £200 Aspire@Greenwich bursary will therefore receive this £200 credit as part of the £1,000 total award credited to the card under the Greenwich Scholarship scheme.

Students will need to have a household income of less than £25,000. Students do not need to apply for this Scholarship: the university will select candidates based on the eligibility criteria up to a certain number of awards.

Students must have made the university their firm choice by the May 2017 deadline.

Further eligibility criteria and conditions will apply and will be made available here shortly.

Students who are:

  • Ordinarily resident1 in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
  • NHS funded students
  • Funded for Postgraduate Initial Teacher Training by the Teaching Agency (formerly the TDA)
  • Continuing from one programme to another
  • Transferring institutions

will not be eligible for the Greenwich Scholarship Programme and students who are following part-time programmes or are EU nationals2 will not be eligible for the maintenance element of any Greenwich Scholarship Programme award and therefore would not receive the Aspire@Greenwich additional Bursary element of any GSP awarded.

Students who qualify for a High Achievement Scholarship will not receive this award in addition.

Students studying for Equivalent or Lower Level Qualifications (ELQ) are also not eligible for this award.

1Home’ status refers to eligibility to meet the requirements for full student support within the Education (Student Support) Regulation 2016 as amended. EU Nationals, although assessed as ‘Home’ for fees may not be ‘home’ for full student support and are not therefore eligible.

2 As defined by the Education (Student Support) Regulations 2011, as amended, Part 2 Schedule 1 (UK and related category Nationals and EU Nationals). Students who hold at least one of the qualification/grade combinations, as specified by the university and fit the published criteria will be considered part of the High Achievement Scholarship population by the University of Greenwich

Students eligible for the High Achievement Scholarship are also eligible for the Aspire@Greenwich scheme and the Care Leaver Bursary provided that they also meet the criteria for these awards. Students eligible for the High Achievement Scholarship will not be eligible to receive the Greenwich Scholarship Programme or the Access Scholarship.

  • Successful students will be awarded a bursary of £2,000 for each year of study up to a maximum of three years, with qualification for the bursary in years two and three conditional on you undertaking a minimum of 120 credits and gaining an overall mark of 65% in the preceding year of study.
  • Direct entrants to the second and third years are not eligible for this particular scholarship. Students who are already graduates or are studying for Equivalent or Lower Qualifications to those that they already hold, students assessed as studying for a postgraduate programme, following a programme funded by the NHS or within the School of Pharmacy are not eligible for an award.
  • Students who hold at least one of the qualification/grade combinations, as specified by the university and fit the published criteria will be considered part of the High Achievement Scholarship population by the University of Greenwich.
