The University offers six bursaries to assist with child-care costs to UK and EU students returning to school after a break of at least three years.
The bursaries have a maximum value of £3,000 per annum.
Bursaries are awarded for one year in the first instance. However, successful applicants pursuing postgraduate degree programmes of more than one year can apply for a further bursary in subsequent years.
These bursaries are awarded to mature UK/EU citizens returning to higher education after at least three years away from university.
Applicants should already have been offered a full-time postgraduate place at the University and should have firmly accepted that offer.
The bursary awards are conditional on this, as well as proof of formal child-care costs.
The bursary is applicable only for registered or formal childcare costs, particularly assisting single parents.
Formal childcare includes childminders, after school clubs and providers of day-care and education.
Completed forms must be submitted together with a copy of your offer of admission letter onto a postgraduate degree programme to Scholarships and Student Funding Services by the closing date of 29 July 2011.
All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application during August 2011.
