Travel Bursary

Do you need financial help getting to interviews? Then why not apply for a Lancaster University travel bursary?

As part of our commitment to employability, you could receive up to £100 per academic year to travel to graduate job or student internship/placement interviews and/or assessment centres where travel expenses are not provided by the recruiting organisation.

Please note that interviews for part time, temporary, non-graduate jobs are not eligible for support.

You can claim more than once, but the total claimed should not exceed £100.

Can I apply?

The scheme is open to all current Lancaster University UK undergraduate students who are in receipt of a Lancaster Bursary or National Scholarship Bursary

How do I claim?

You can apply for a Travel Bursary once you have received an invitation to attend for interview or assessment; successful applicants will normally receive payment within 3 weeks of making their application. You will need to provide:

  • Completed application
  • Copy of initial invitation to interview or assessment centre
  • Completed claim form with travel receipts attached
  • Completed feedback on interview/assessment form

Are there any conditions?

You must claim your Travel Bursary in the same academic year as the interview/assessment took place. Late claims cannot be forwarded to the next academic year. There is a limited amount of money available; the Travel Bursary will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the annual fund is exhausted, no additional funds will be available until the start of a new academic year All approved claims will be processed within 3 weeks where possible and will be paid directly into your bank account.
