How will I be paid?
Warwick Bursaries will be paid directly into the same bank account that your student loan and grants are paid into so there is no need to notify us of your bank details. You will receive an instalment each term of about a third of the yearly total. Your confirmation email will let you know the amounts and payment dates. If you are eligible for the additional bursary, this will be paid as a one-off payment in term 2.
