Young Carers Bursary

If you're under 25 and care for a family member you may be eligible for an additional bursary of £500 per year from the University, to help you with any additional costs that you have because of your caring responsibilities.

To be eligible you must:

  • Be a UK student

  • Be a full-time undergraduate student

  • Be an unpaid carer for a family member who, due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without your support

Recipients can also receive the University Bursary of £750 a year.
