Grants and Bursaries

You may, due to your circumstances or the subjects you are looking to study, be eligible for certain grants and bursaries. These may not need to be paid back and, whilst some are means-tested (i.e. based on income or some other criteria) others are open to everyone regardless of circumstance. Our dedicated Student Finance Officer is available to help with applications, and more information about each is listed below.

Access to Learning Fund

Designed for those UK undergraduates who are in severe financial need, this Fund is open to both full and part-time students. The Fund opens each academic year, usually from October until the summer term, subject to sufficient funds (usually May/June), with assessment on an individual basis.

University of Greenwich Bursaries

If you study on a course accredited by the University of Greenwich, you may be eligible for one or more of their bursaries, such as the Greenwich Scholarship Programme (GSP) or Care Leavers Bursary.
