Access to Exeter Bursary 2012/13


The Access to Exeter Bursary scheme for 2012/13 starters is a non-competitive bursary available to full-time UK and EU undergraduate students with a household income of less than £42,600.  It is a non-repayable award paid on-top of any statutory support from the government.

Students must make an application for means-tested student finance.

The household income* figure calculated by the relevant student funding body assessing your application for student finance (e.g. Student Finance England) will be used to assess your eligibility for the bursary and the level of award you will receive.

The table below shows the household income thresholds and bursary amounts for 2012/13 entrants:
