Financial Support for Current Students

In 2019-20, all UK students in the ≤£30k income group will receive a £1,000 annual bursary throughout the period of their study at Lancaster. This approach, which takes into account the additional government support provided to students in the ≤£25k income bracket, has received the support of Lancaster’s Students’ Union when consulted in early 2017.

The complete bursary and scholarship scheme for 2019-20 will comprise:

  • A Lancaster bursary of £1,000 per annum for all UK students from households in the ≤£30k income bracket
  • An annual £1,000 scholarship for all UK students admitted with at least AAA at A level or the equivalent from non A-level qualifications and at least 5 As at GCSE (or grade 7 in the newly reformed GCSEs)
  • A £2,000 scholarship for the first year of study to any UK student admitted with at least A*A*A or the equivalent from non A-level qualifications and at least 5 As at GCSE (or grade 7 in the newly reformed GCSEs)
