Financial support for students studying certain teacher education courses.
All Teacher Education Bursaries have now been set up for the 2023/24 academic year. If you have not been contacted by the Student Funding team, we do not believe you are eligible for a bursary. However, if you think that you are eligible, please let us know by contacting Hallam Help.
If you’re studying to become a teacher you may be eligible for a scholarship funded by an independent professional body or a bursary funded by the Department for Education.
You cannot receive both a scholarship and a bursary.
What you could receive
The funding available depends on the subject you are studying to teach, the qualification of your course, and your highest relevant academic qualification.
Scholarships and bursaries are normally paid over 10 equal monthly instalments from October to July.
Our terms and conditions documents explain who is eligible and what eligible students can expect to receive.
Details of the 2023/24 bursaries
If you’re not eligible for a teacher education scholarship or bursary, you may be able to apply for the Student Success Scholarship.
How to apply
You do not need to apply for a bursary. However, you must complete a claim form once you have started your course.
If you would like to be considered for a scholarship, you must apply to the appropriate professional body. Visit the Get into Teaching funding page to find out how and when to apply.
If your application is successful, we will ask you to complete a claim form once you have started your course.
If your scholarship application is unsuccessful, you can claim the standard bursary for your course, if you are eligible.
How and when to claim
Once you are fully enrolled and your course has started, we will invite you to complete a claim form. This form will ask you to upload evidence that includes:
- Photo ID
- Qualification certificates
If you think that you are eligible for a scholarship or a bursary but have not heard from us by the end of October, please contact Hallam Help. Please note that there are no teacher education bursaries for PGCE Primary courses.
