Bursaries for four-year extended degrees (for students starting a course in the 2017-18 academic year)

If you are planning to take one of London Met's extended degree courses, you might be entitled to financial assistance from the University to help you with your studies.

Where applicable, the bursaries for our extended degrees are comprised of a £1,000 bursary in each year of your four-year course, plus a progression award (when you progress from Year 0 into Year 1), an achievement award (when you achieve an average of 75% or more for your final mark in Year 0) and a fee reduction for some courses meaning that the usual price of £9,000 per year is reduced to a lower amount for Year 0 of your course.

All UK and EU students are eligible for fee reductions. You are only eligible for the bursary (£1,000 in each year of your four year course) if you are receiving the full Maintenance Loan.

What you may be eligible for differs slightly depending on which of our six schools you will be studying with.
