Young Carers Bursary

If you are under 25 and care for a family member you may be eligible for an additional bursary of £500 per year from the University, to help you with any additional costs that you have because of your caring responsibilities.

To be eligible you must:

  • Be under 25
  • Be a full-time undergraduate student
  • Be an unpaid carer for a family member who, due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without your support
  • Have an assessed family income of £25,000 or below per year (verified by your relevant funding body, for example Student Finance England or the NHS)

For further information and to apply for the bursary please contact the Student Finance Centre.
