Bursaries at Salford

One of the ways you can receive support with student finance is through our bursaries and scholarships scheme. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for one of our financial support packages to help with the costs of study.

Salford Student Bursaries

If you’re a Greater Manchester resident with a household income of £25,000 or less, you could be awarded the Salford Student Bursary. We have 390 awards available to students starting their course in 2018, which is paid in three instalments of £1,000 in years one, two and three.

To be eligible for a Salford Student Bursary, you’ll need to meet the following criteria:

  • Have a declared household residual income of £25,000 or less (as part of your submitted application, you must have been income assessed through Student Finance England).
  • Have your permanent address (not term time address) in the Greater Manchester area and have been schooled within Greater Manchester.
  • Be a new student to Higher Education planning to study a BA (Hons), BSc (Hons), BEng (Hons), LLB (Hons), MChem, MEng, MEnv or MPhys course and entering in year 1. Foundation Year students can apply when you progress onto Year 1 of the programme.
  • Your tuition fee must not be less than £9,250 (full-time) or £4,620 (part-time).

Please note that meeting the criteria does not guarantee you an award.

Priority is given to students in the care system and students from neighbourhoods where participation in Higher Education is low.

Salford Advantage Bursaries

Salford Advantage Bursaries are specifically for UK students who have been in the care system and/or those estranged from their parents. The bursaries are worth £3,000 in total, which is paid equally over the duration of three years of study. 

You can apply for the bursary following registration at the University in October.
