Household income below £16,000

What am I eligible to receive?

Recipients of the full NSP award have an option to receive a tuition fee waiver for the full £3,000 or can opt to receive £1,000 as an NSP Award which will be paid into your bank account with the remaining £2,000 as a tuition fee reduction.

In order for us to process payments, students must supply the University of Exeter with their correct bank details. You can add bank details during registration or at any time after you have registered via the finance tab of your online Student Records System account (accessed from the University of Exeter homepage).

Important - If we do not have your bank details then payments cannot be made. If we have the incorrect bank details then payments may be paid to an incorrect account. Should this happen then the funds will need to be reclaimed from the bank before a maintenance payment can be repaid to your correct account. The timescale of this repayment then rests with the bank. We advise all students to check their bank details are present and accurate by visiting their student record.

Terms and Conditions

For further information on the National Scholarship Programme or the Access to Exeter Bursary or you can visit our Frequently Asked Questions section in the Student Information Desk.
Our Terms and Conditions for 2016/17 are expected to be available from August 2016.

NB - Welsh students are not eligible to receive the National Scholarship Programme Fee Waiver but will still benefit from the £1,500 ATE Bursary.
