Travel Bursary

The Travel Bursary has been designed to help students cover the costs of studying at university in the city each semester. Eligible students can receive a payment of £250 for each semester, with the opportunity of receiving up to £500 per Academic Year. See the full terms and conditions here.


  • Studying an undergraduate degree
  • 90% minimum attendance across all modules for the semester
  • Submitted all assessments on time (If an assessment offence has been proven, it will be considered as non-submission)
  • Not eligible for the bursary if you are retaking or resitting a module. 

The eligibility of students will be assessed at the end of Semester 1 and Semester 2. If you qualify to receive the Travel Bursary for Semester 1, the required attendance and assessment criteria would have to be maintained during Semester 2 to qualify for the second payment at the end of Semester 2.


  • For qualifying students, the payment will be £250 after the assessment results are confirmed for Semester 1, and £250 after the results are confirmed for Semester 2.
  • You will be notified by e-mail as to what date you can expect payment to be made. 
  • Should you qualify for Travel Bursary, you will be able to enter your bank details in a secure repository on VLE which will be used by Finance to make the payment. You will be solely responsible for ensuring the accuracy of these details. UoBM will not be liable for any loss as a result of incorrect payment details

Attendance Monitoring

  • You can keep track of your attendance online through the VLE and this is updated on a daily basis. 
  • Please note that if you record your in-class attendance later than 10:30 am (if you have a lecture in the morning) and 2:30 pm (if you have a lecture in the afternoon), you will be marked as absent.
  • If you believe you are having a technological issue registering your in-class attendance via VLE, please make an attendance enquiry through VLE for assistance. 

UoBM reserves the right to withdraw the bursary at any time if deemed necessary. If a student is found using any attendance card other than their own, they will disqualify themselves and any other parties involved from receiving any future bursaries and will be subject to disciplinary proceedings.

Disabled Students Allowance

This request is available for students who are unable to pay the contribution of £200 towards the DSA equipment. We will need a copy of the Disabled Student Allowance Entitlement letter from Student Finance before we can assess your application.

If you would like to apply for the DSA grant, please email us.

Please note this is only available to students with an approved Disabled Student Allowance from the Student Loan Company.

Financial Hardship Bursary

The Financial Hardship Bursary is a bursary provided by UoBM to assist undergraduate and postgraduate students who are experiencing financial hardship and their Student Finance Loan does not cover their expenses.

A bursary of up to £500 for undergraduate or £250 for postgraduate students will be awarded to students with a successful application that does not need to be paid back.

When applying for the bursary relevant evidence will be requested to demonstrate how your financial difficulty is impacting your essential day-to-day living and how your Student Finance Loan is not coving your daily expenses.

Please find the application form here which can be passed on to our finance department, as well as full Terms and Conditions for this loan. Each request will be processed in line with this guidance but we will take each individual’s circumstances into account.

Short Term Loan

A Short-Term Loan of £500 is available to students who experience an unexpected, short-term financial issue that will impact their essential day-to-day living costs or studies.

The loan is paid across four weeks in instalments of £125. You would be required to pay back the loan in full as soon as you have received your first maintenance loan instalment from Student Finance England.

To apply for the loan, please find the guide here as well as the application form

*Please be aware that you will only be eligible for the short-term loan if you have not yet received a maintenance loan instalment from Student Finance England for this academic year.
