    University Bursaries can be applied for from 6th Form onwards.

    If successful you maybe awarded a 'Reserved Place' which means POC & AIB remain valid until you join. Otherwise they each need retaking & passing within 12 months of entry.

    Ninja - three questions;
    can reserved places be gained so that the person will have a place reserved for him after university?
    Also can the a level scholarships be given to candidates who go to an independent school?If so ^ how do you apply for the A level scholarship?

    Awaiting selection after AIB pass
    Sorry to revive this thread, but how does the money get paid to you if you receive a bursary? Does it get knocked off your tuition fees or is it given as a lump sum? Maybe one for @Ninja_Stoker.

    I think you either get a £500 cheque each term or £1500 at the beginning of each academic year- I'll double check.

    @Ninja_Stoker , say you were to have passed both POC and AIB and were thinking of dropping out of uni, could you put yourself forward for the nearest upcoming batch selection? This would be instead of applying for the Bursary.

    Hi

    This is probably aimed at Ninja Stoker

    I wondered if you could tell me when the University Bursary Sponsorship Board meets, I think it might be some time next week I just can't seem to find the date.

    Your insight would be appreciated.

    My understanding is it sits before 30th September - I'll ask, come Monday.

    If you were unsuccessful in receiving a Bursary Sponsorship this year and the letter said you could reply, do you need to re-do all of the application including the POC (current until January 2017). Or can you just re-sit the parts that are out of date ie PJFT, and medical and go straight to AIB before January?

    Hope this makes sense?

    You would only need re-take the expired elements, but all elements must be valid at the start of the academic year for which you wish to gain a bursary (much the same as they must be valid upon entry into YO training).

    Thanks.

    So just so to ensure I sully get this. You could re-do PJFT and medical before January - redo AIB before January and then depending on how well that went re-do POC before June so as to be considered for the September 2017 Bursary Sponsorship panel?

    Sorry just want to clearly understand
