Undergraduate Home UK students commencing their studies from September 2022, paying the full £9,250 Tuition fees and have a household income of under £30,000, 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 if paid for the NHS, either in full or in part, for example years 2-4 BM4, you will NOT be eligible for this award.

SAAS (Student awards agency for Scotland) funded students who have a household income of under £30,000 will be eligible for a Bursary (cash payment into your bank account)

Students will not be eligible for the Bursary when undertaking a work placement whether within the UK or overseas.

Students undertaking a year of studying abroad remain eligible to receive the Bursary

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

If you are a continuing student you will be assessed and awarded in accordance with the previous bursary regulations.

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 by SFE) and process the Bursary you may be eligible to receive, once your household income has been fully assessed and verified by SFE.

If you are eligible to receive the bursary this will be applied automatically. You do not need to inform the university.

You will be notified of any support you may be entitled to receive by email, which will be sent to the email address registered with Student Finance. You will not be notified until September/October 2022 at the earliest.

£16,000 or less £2000
£16,001 - £30,000 £1000


Your household income can be adjusted by Student Finance at any time if they feel there has been a change in your circumstances.  If a re-assessment is completed, this may mean you become ineligible for the Bursary or your entitlement is reduced. If a re-assessment is carried out Student Finance will send you an email confirming this, which will be sent to the email address SFE have registered with you. Please therefore ensure your address with SFE is kept up to date to ensure all communications reach you in good time.

Any financial support you may be entitled to will be paid in three instalments:

  • 21 November, 2022 (34%)
  • 20 February, 2023 (33%)
  • 15 May, 2023 (33%)

Do note that the Bursary can only be received in the current academic year and cannot be applied retrospectively.

If you are returning from a period of suspension, you may be eligible to receive the University of Southampton Bursary.  For further information regarding this, please contact the Financial Support Team by email at: stufunds@soton.ac.uk  

Please note that this Household Income will need to have been assessed by 29 May 2023 or you will be unable to receive a Bursary for the 22/23 academic year if entitled.
