Hi,

I have recently been accepted onto a SCITT course to become a Physics Teacher. I am now going through the process of getting funding for the course via Student Finance England for the course fees and have been made aware I am eligible for a £26'000 tax-free bursary.

Is this bursary dependant on how much my partner makes (~£20k p/a)? Or is that £26'000 guaranteed?

Guaranteed!

You can take student loans too but they are means tested.

Totally not means tested, tax free and you don't have to pay it back even if you quit part way through.

It's intended as an incentive to get people to consider trying teaching- so there's almost no restrictions on it.

You can also get a fees loan, which is not means tested but you do have to pay back. This may be useful as the fees are usually paid in two lump sums, not monthly.
