King's Living Bursary

  • Bachelor
  • ¬£1,200-¬£1,600 variable on household income

The King’s Living Bursary scheme is open to every full-time home first degree student who has been means-tested with a final income assessment of £42,641 or less, on the £9,250 tuition fee rate. Second degree students on non-graduate entry programmes will be considered eligible, provided they meet the remaining criteria.
Please note that you must be means-tested by Student Finance England/Wales/N.Ireland/SAAS even if you do not intend to take up the maintenance loan. You must also give consent to share your household income data with the university. NHS funded and graduate students are not eligible.
As a new full-time home undergraduate student starting university in 2017, the level of bursary you receive will depend on your income and that of your household. You must qualify for the bursary by July 2018 for a payment in 2017-18. Eligibility is checked for each year of your course. This bursary is for costs whilst you are studying and does not have to be repaid.

You will receive your bursary in two equal instalments - usually in November and February - over your academic year and it does not have to be repaid. Payment will be made by BACS, and you will be asked to provide your bank details via your online student records portal  to enable this after you have enrolled. Bursary payments will not be issued if you are no longer in attendance on your course.You will be contacted about your bursary by mid-November.


The bursary differs slightly depending on the year you start at King's.
You will not need to apply for the bursary - as long as you meet the criteria below and you and your sponsors both give Student Finance England/Northern Ireland/Wales/SAAS 'consent to share' your financial information with us, you will be contacted once you have started at King's.
