To be eligible you must meet all of the following conditions:

  • have been classified as Rest of UK (RUK) fee status by the University of Dundee
  • have met the academic conditions of your offer of admission for entry to the University of Dundee in September 2017
  • matriculate at the University of Dundee for your first undergraduate degree (from any university) in any subject (not in the School of Nursing & Health Sciences)
  • be resident in the UK
  • and have a residual household income (as calculated by the Student Loans Company) of less than £20,000 p.a.

The bursary will not be paid for any full academic year spent studying in another institution outside the UK on a recognised exchange programme.

Further Information

The University will award a means-tested bursary of £2,000 for each year of study at Dundee (excluding any years of study abroad) for Rest of UK (RUK) fee status students entering the University for the first time in September 2017 whose family income is £20,000 p.a. or less. The bursary is available for each year of undergraduate degree study based at the University and is available to students on all undergraduate degree programmes (not in the School of Nursing & Health Sciences).

Students repeating because of academic failure will not receive this bursary, only those satisfying medical or compassionate repeats. Students also need to progress onto the next level of their course to get the bursary in any subsequent years – those who change course and repeat a level will not receive it for that year. For those students, and the academic failure students, the bursary will recommence when they progress onto the next level of their course.

How will I be paid?

The University will pay you in 2 instalments (in November  2017 and February 2018) and will confirm the details to you in October.

Am I eligible for other University financial support?

Students may be eligible for a number of RUK awards depending on individual circumstances. The RUK Bursary may be held in conjunction with other University awards, such as the Discover Dundee (RUK) Scholarship and the Rest of UK Academic Excellence Scholarship.
