Bursaries

TEDI-LONDON FINANCIAL SUPPORT ARRANGEMENTS

At TEDI-London we will award bursaries to students if they come from a low-income family or if they are a care leaver. This can help students who may face more barriers to attending full-time education, enabling them to access a degree at TEDI-London.

The Student Hub can support students experiencing financial difficulties. We can check that you are receiving all the funding and benefits you are entitled to. We can also help you with budgeting and to understand your expenditures.

Please note that you will only receive one bursary, even if you are eligible for more than one.

TEDI-LONDON ACCESS BURSARY

If your household income is less than £35,000 a year, and you meet the eligibility criteria outlined below, you will automatically be awarded a bursary of up to £2,000 for every year of your course. This is not a loan: it is a gift from TEDI-London that does not have to be repaid and you can use the money for anything you want.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

To be awarded a TEDI-London Access Bursary, you must meet all the following eligibility criteria:

  • Be undertaking your first full-time undergraduate degree.
  • Qualify for home fee status and Student Finance maintenance support.
  • Liable for the full £9,000 tuition fee.
  • Not be sponsored by a company or other body.
  • Have been means-tested by Student Finance England/ Northern Ireland/ Wales/ SAAS to have a final assessed household income of £35,000 or less.

BURSARY AMOUNT

The Bursary amount will be determined on your final assessed household income:

Assessed household income TEDI-London
Less than £20,000 £2,000
£20,000 – £24,999 £1,500
£25,000 – £29,999 £1,000
£30,000 – £34,999 £500

PAYMENT SCHEDULE

Payments are made directly into your bank account in two equal instalments on 1st December and 1st March.

ANNUAL REVIEW

You will be asked to declare any updates to your final assessed household income on an annual basis. If your final assessed household income is in a different category to the one which you were originally assessed as, your Bursary amount will be adjusted up or down accordingly.

Students who were not eligible for a Bursary upon registration may also use this process to be assessed for a TEDI-London Bursary.

CARE LEAVER BURSARY

If you have been in full-time care for three months or longer at any time over the last five years, you will automatically be awarded a TEDI-London Care Leaver Bursary of £2,000 per year. This is not a loan: it is a gift from TEDI-London that does not have to be repaid and you can use the money for anything you want.

To be awarded a TEDI-London Care Leavers Bursary, you must meet all the following eligibility criteria:

  • Have been in care for a period of three months or more in the last 5 years.
