London Met Bursary

We're offering £1,000 cash bursaries (that's money you don't pay back) every year to students on degree programmes on a London Met campus who are also receiving the full Maintenance Loan. That's £3,000 cash in total. If you study part-time, you may be eligible for a £500 bursary based on taking a minimum of 60 credits per year.

This bursary money can be used in a variety of ways to help support your study, which might include:

  • buying IT equipment and any specialist software that you need for your course
  • purchasing course materials such as books and eBooks
  • covering travel expenses for your journeys to London Met. 

Eligibility criteria

  • You must be a permanent resident in the UK and be a home student for fee purposes.
  • You must enrol onto a full-time undergraduate course on campus at London Met. For courses offered at our partner institutions, please speak directly to the college admissions teams for fee and bursary information.
  • You could be eligible for this bursary if you are entering the course directly in Year 2 or Year 3.
  • You must be new student and should not already hold a first degree or higher qualification.
  • You must have a household income of £25,000 or less.
  • Continued eligibility for bursary is dependent on a good attendance record (attending 75% or more of your classes), and your successful full-time progression to the second and third course years of your course.

If you start your course in September you need to meet your eligibility criteria by the last Friday of March in the following calendar year. If you start your course in January you need to meet all eligibility criteria by the last Friday of July in the same calendar year. The deadline for all assessments is 31 May.
