The Offer Holder Visit Day Bursary

We reimburse travel costs for Offer-Holder Visit Days (OHVDs) for all Exeter Scholars students. We are able to offer you a maximum total of £150 in order to cover your travel and hotel costs (if applicable). That £150 should cover both travel and hotel costs in total.

  • The bursary will be paid for participating students only, and not for anyone attending events as participants' guests.
  • Receipts are required for reimbursement for any travel by public transport; unfortunately, we will not be able to reimburse travel claims without this evidence.
  • Claims will be paid for the student only based upon a maximum of one outward and one inward trip per Offer Holder Visit Day (OHVD).
  • Fuel claims will be paid at a standard mileage rate. For all mileage claims, the first 100 miles of any round trip will be paid at the rate of 45p per mile and the remaining miles will be at 25p per mile. 
  • Please make it clear on your form which Offer Holder Visit Day you are claiming travel/hotel expenses for, as we will not be able to reimburse the cost if your attendance cannot be verified.
  • One claim form is required per event.
  • Where possible, please ensure that your evidence is in PDF or JPEG format. 

In order to claim your costs back, you will need to complete the expenses online claim form and if you travelled by public transport, you will need to email scanned copies or photos of any relevant travel tickets / receipts, all in PDF or JPEG format where possible.

Please allow approximately 4 weeks for each claim to be processed.
