    It's for students from 'widening access' backgrounds, so the extra year is a foundation year.

    You must satisfy three of the eligibility criteria listed below in order to be eligible for the BM6 programme, and you will be expected to provide documentary proof.
    • First generation applicant to higher education
    • Parents, guardian or self in receipt of a means-tested benefit
    • Young people looked after by a Local Authority
    • In receipt of a 16-19 bursary or similar grant
    • In receipt of free school meals at any point in Years 10-13
    • Living in an area with a postcode which falls within the lowest 20 per cent of the Index of Multiple Deprivation (authenticated by the University), or a member of a travelling family
