Inspire scheme helps our new students get off to a flying start

We have launched a new financial support scheme for all new UK and EU undergraduate students who are joining us on an undergraduate programme or foundation year from this September onwards.

If you’re a new student, then once you have completed your registration here on campus you will automatically be able to access your Inspire account. Check your university email (you can access your email account here) 24 hours after you pick up your ID card for a message from and follow the instructions. This will enable you to log on to so that you can start spending!

Your Inspire account will give you £150 credit to spend in a dedicated online store. You’ll be able to look at your reading lists and buy text books, as well as other learning resources, electronics or stationery, to give you the best possible start to your studies.

This scheme will run annually, meaning you will receive £150 credit on Inspire for each year of your undergraduate degree if you study here on campus. You can also top up your account with your own money if you want to purchase something that costs a little more. 

Students from low-income backgrounds and living in areas where participation in higher education is low will receive an additional £350 credit, bringing their total to £500 each year. You don’t need to apply separately for this extra credit – we will check if you are eligible when you register based on your personal circumstances. If you are eligible we will contact you in mid-October.

Those who aren’t eligible for the scheme can still register on the Inspire website to take advantage of the 15% discount off RRP on core texts and 10% discount off RRP on recommended texts.

You can take a look at how the site works and what you can buy here. You can also check out the FAQs and the terms and conditions.
