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.
