Bangor University Bursary

The Bangor Bursary means you could receive up to £3000 in extra financial help over the duration of a three-year course. Bangor bursaries are available on top of any state-funded maintenance grants and loans, as well as any other University bursaries you may be eligible for.

Your eligibility…

Your eligibility for a Bangor bursary depends on

  • your household income: all those with a household income below £40,000 will get a bursary of either £1,000 or £500 a year from the University, and
  • the course you are studying; you must studying on a full-time undergraduate course with a tuition fee of £9,000 payable to Bangor University.
  • Depending on household income and the subject area studied, some PGCE students will also be eligible to receive Bangor bursaries. This will apply to PGCE students with a household income below £40,000 who are not eligible for ITT training grants.

The bursaries are available to students from all parts of the EU and do NOT have to be paid back.

Please note:

  • Bursaries will only be available to full-time, undergraduate students who are paying the full fee of £9,000, and registered and in attendance 14 days prior to the particular bursary payment date.
  • Students in receipt of other bursary payments (e.g. NHS, Health & Social Care Council) will not be eligible for the bursaries scheme.

How will the bursary be assessed?

Your eligibility for a Bangor Bursary is determined through the statutory means test carried out either by Student Finance Wales or Student Finance England, when you complete the on-line form PN1. This means that you won’t need to apply to the University for a Bangor Bursary. If eligible, a confirmation letter will be sent to your home address in February 2018.  Bursary payments are made from the 1st March 2018 onwards.

As you need to complete the Student Finance assessment forms every year, the amount of Bangor bursary you may be eligible for may change from year to year.

Students from the EU are asked to contact the Money Advice Unit for guidance on bursary assessment procedures. E-mail:
