    Hi.

    Last year, as a fresher, I got a bursary from Lancaster for £1000 which was broken up into the 3 terms. I think it was for low income but I can't remember.

    Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows if I get this in second year or not? And when I'll get details of it etc?

    :woo: Thanks.

    (Edit: I think it's this http://www.lancs.ac.uk/ugfinance/bursaries.htm but that suggests it's only for first years? Just wanna check).

    Yeah you'll get the full whack like me, providing your house hold income is under 18k I think.

    We only get £1005 though each year whereas freshers will get £1315, which is unfair as our tutiton fees go up every single year yet the bursarys don't.

    It is unfair that the amount doesn't rise inline with the tuition fees, which is the reason why it's given in the first place.

    Tuition fees have gone up every year since the new fees were introduced in 2006.

    2006 - £3000
    2007 - £3070
    2008 - £3145

    Your fees have gone up, fact.

    ok point taken, i'm still not going to moan about the university giving me money for nothing though, even if the fees are put up by £70 or so, especially when the people who receive the bursary are likely getting their tuition fees paid for by the state and doesn't affect them as of now

    It is a legal requirement that universities offer a busary for households who earn under a certain amount. This is due to the rising cost of tuition fees and I believe that if the university puts up the tution fees, the bursary should also go up too.
