The Kingston Bursary

The Kingston Bursary is now closed for 2023/24.

There are at least 400 bursaries of £2,000 (in the first year of study) available to 'Home' fee-status students who start an undergraduate course at Kingston University in September 2023.

Eligibility criteria

Eligible students will be identified automatically and you do not need to apply for the bursary. However, please read the 'what you need to do' section below to ensure we can consider your eligibility.

To be eligible for the bursary you must meet all the criteria below. Meeting the criteria does not guarantee a bursary, as there are a limited number available.

  • You must be a home fee-status student with a tuition fee of £9,250.
  • You must have firmly accepted an offer from Kingston University for an undergraduate course.
  • You must be starting Year 1 of your undergraduate course in September 2023 (Foundation Year 0 or 'top-up' students are not eligible).
  • You must not be studying on a course eligible for the NHS Learning Support Fund (Nursing or Midwifery courses). If studying one of these courses, please ensure you apply for the Learning Support Fund from the NHS.
  • You must have a household income of £25,000 or less assessed by Student Finance England or Student Finance Wales.

What you need to do

To be considered for the Kingston Bursary you should

  • Firmly accept your offer from Kingston University for September 2023 entry
  • Apply for your student finance support. You must have a household income assessment fully completed by the relevant organisation in order to be considered for the Kingston Bursary. Without this completed assessment (with all evidence verified) you cannot be considered for the bursary. You must have Kingston University and your course with us listed as your first choice in your Student Finance application and have consented to share information with the University.
  • Fully enrol as a student at Kingston University in September 2023.

What will happen next

We will contact eligible students who have been awarded the Kingston Bursary in Autumn 2023.

Students in receipt of the Kingston Bursary, who have fully enrolled and meet ongoing attendance requirements, will receive this as a payment in three instalments, paid into the UK bank account you have registered for Student Finance.
