University Bursaries: For information on bursaries available for various universities, please click here
Also, why not go onto the UCAS website, find your university and course, under 'course search'. Click on the 'Fees & Finance' tab at top, which should show details of any bursaries available.
It is well worth you looking at the universities you have applied to and investigating how you apply for the bursary. This is different for each university and there is only a set amount of money so the sooner you apply the better.
If you have applied through UCAS, used all five choices on your application and aren't holding any offers, you might be able to apply through Extra for another course. In Extra, you can apply for any course with vacancies. Extra is open between the end of February and early July. In Extra, you apply for one course at a time using Track.
