UK/EU undergraduate students commencing their academic studies from September 2018, paying the full £9,250 fees and have a household income of under £25,000, will be eligible for a bursary (cash payment into your bank account). If you are a UK student not applying for a means-tested student loan from Student Finance (England, Wales, or Northern Ireland), or if your course is paid for by the NHS either in full or in part, for example years 2-4 BM4, you will NOT be eligible for this award.

Students will not be eligible for the bursary when undertaking a full year of study or work placement either within the UK or overseas.

Students who are undertaking a postgraduate course that is statutory funded  will not be eligible for the bursary.

The bursary will be available in each year of study for which you are eligible for support.

The university will calculate (based on your household income data as supplied to the SFE as part of your application for student support) and process the bursary that you may be eligible for once your household income has been fully assessed and verified by SFE.

You will be notified of any support you may be entitled to receive by letter, which will be sent to the address held by Student Finance.

Annual household incomeStudent support package
£16,000 or less £3,000
£16,001 - £25,000 £1,500 

The university will calculate (based on your household income data as supplied to the SFE as part of your application for student support) and process any fee waiver that you may be eligible for once your household income has been fully assessed and verified by SFE.

Your household income can be adjusted by Student Finance at any time if they feel that there has been a change in your circumstances.  If a reassessment is completed, this may mean you become ineligible for the bursary or your entitlement is reduced. If a reassessment is completed then Student Finance will send you a letter confirming the adjustment to the address they have registered for you, you should ensure that you keep you address updated with them to ensure all communications reach in good time.   

Any financial support that you may be entitled to will be paid on or around the following dates:

19 November 2018, 25%

25 February 2019, 25%

20 May 2019, 50%

If you are returning from a period of suspension, you may be eligible for the University of Southampton Bursary. For further information regarding this, please contact the Student Services Centre on 023 8059 9599.
