2. What you'll get

The social work bursary is a grant that doesn’t depend on your household income and doesn’t have to be paid back.

The amount you get depends on:

  • where you study
  • whether you study full or part-time
  • the cost of your tuition

Graduates doing an undergraduate social work course can apply for the Maintenance Loan part of the main student finance package.

How it’s paid

Social work bursaries are paid in 3 instalments, one each term.

If you’re disabled

You may be able to get extra help if you’re disabled and a postgraduate student.
