    Hi there,

    I just had a question about over-paid bursaries. I receive the University of Leicester Scholarship (which gifts £1,000 each academic year) based on low-income. They have overpaid me, and have gifted me £2,000 into my bank account; am I liable to pay this back, or can I keep the extra money? Does anyone know anything about University-based bursaries, rather than through SFE.

    Many thanks

    Contact Leicester's funding/scholarships office first thing Monday morning in person/over the phone as a matter of urgency to clear things up. Only they can give a definitive answer.
