• Have a family income as assessed by Student Finance England at below £35,001
• Be in receipt of a tuition fee loan* and maintenance loan from Student Finance England
• Not be entitled to any other statutory support in the form of a grant or fee waiver for your course
• For your sixth form education have been educated at a state school or college in England or received a full fee-paying means-tested bursary at an Independent School in England or a partial means-tested bursary which is clearly indicative of an annual family income below £25,001 a year

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.
