Hi,

I get the full maintanence grant from student finance because of my parents financial position, however today I got an additional payment from the HEI bursary people (according to my statement), I haven't applied for any bursary so is this a mistake?

Is it a loan and do I need to pay it back?

Thanks

As long as you tick the box when applying then your family income information gets shared with your university - so they'll automatically award you any bursaries/awards you're eligible for.

Bursaries are like grants...you don't repay them

Hey I'm in the same situation right now. Did everything work out and you were able to keep it in the end? I'm confused because I haven't applied to it and am scared, too, that it's a mistake.

Thank you xx

You don't apply for that they just give it you automatically and you don't pay bursarys back. If you tick the box saying share my information with my uni and you get the full loan then you automatically get any bursaries you qualify for x

Just curious- I got two bursary payments of £1500 last year over my first year, I’m now retaking, do I get those bursaries still? Do they carry on, or is it just for the first year or something? I checked my unis website but they don’t have a bursary like that you can apply for, so if it didn’t come from them I don’t know where it did.

Also v confused.
