I have only received half my normal bursary, why is this?
To receive a full bursary you must be paying tuition fees of over £3000 in the current academic year. Where a student is only paying fees of between £1500 and £3000 in the current academic year, (often during a placement year) they will receive a bursary of 50% of the standard bursary award for their household income. The following year when they resume paying full fees; their bursary will return to the normal level.
