Understanding Bursaries

University Centre Peterborough is delighted to offer a variety of bursary schemes to support our students.

A bursary is a type of financial aid given by the University that doesn’t require repayment. It is not added to your student loan. It’s granted based on certain criteria.

These bursaries are not limited in number, meaning that all eligible applicants who meet the specific criteria for a given bursary are assured to receive the award.

Available Bursary Schemes

If you are from a low income household (under £30,000 per year) and studying a full-time undergraduate course you will receive a £500 cash bursary at the beginning of the second semester. Part-time undergraduate sudents will recieve a pro rata payment depending on the number of credits you are studying.

This bursary is available to students studying at University Centre Peterborough at either our Peterborough or Stamford campus and also our partner ESPA. The bursary for partners commenced in September 2020.

In order to be assessed as eligible for the low income bursary students must meet the following criteria:

  • University Centre Peterborough student
  • Paying their tuition fees through Student Finance England
  • Have an assessed household income of under £30,000 from Student Finance England and be in receipt of maintenance loan from Student Finance England
  • Fully enrolled and in attendance at the time of each payment
  • Have validated bank details registered with Student Finance England
  • As part of their student finance application they have agreed for information to be shared with UCP so that the bursary can be approved.
