The Kingston Bursary

There are 400 bursaries of £2,000 available to students who start courses at Kingston University in September 2021.

Eligibility criteria

You are eligible to apply provided you meet all the following criteria:

  • you have a firm offer to start an undergraduate course at Kingston University in September 2021
  • the tuition fee for your course is £9,250
  • you are eligible for (and take out) the maximum maintenance loan from Student Finance England (or equivalent); students only entitled to the Tuition Fee loan are not eligible to apply for the bursary
  • neither of your parents holds a higher education qualification
  • you have not studied at university level before (unless this was on a foundation course in art and design)
  • your household income, as assessed by Student Finance England (or equivalent) is £25,000 or less

You must apply for student finance through Student Finance England (or equivalent) and be income-assessed before we can assess your application for a bursary.

Both you and whoever is providing evidence for your household income assessment (e.g. parents or partner) must give permission to share information with the University when completing your student finance application.

The Kingston University Bursary is for the first year only. Bursaries are paid in termly instalments into the same bank account as Student Finance support.

How to apply

You will be able to apply for a Kingston University Bursary from May 2021 onwards provided Kingston University is your Firm choice through UCAS. All applications must be received by the deadline of 30 June 2021.

All Firm offer holders (for eligible undergraduate courses) will be emailed details on how to apply.

Please note that meeting the eligibility criteria above does not guarantee you will receive a bursary. In the event of oversubscription, bursaries will be prioritised using additional criteria based on underrepresentation in Higher Education, socioeconomic background and KU Cares status.
