Bursary and financial support

New Student Bursary Scheme

Our bursary scheme is designed to assist those new students who are able to demonstrate need. It is open to new students from all countries and will provide a discount on fees for the duration of the programme.

This funding is aimed at helping those studying at undergraduate level, and is therefore available for Bachelors and Foundation Programmes.

To apply for a bursary from UCEM, you must first be offered a place on a programme. Once an offer has been made, you can apply for a bursary by completing the appropriate bursary application form below, and submitting it with the necessary supporting documentation. You can either email finance@ucem.ac.uk or post it to Finance at UCEM. If your application is successful, you will be notified before the course start date.

Redundancy Support Scheme

With economic uncertainly affecting all areas of the globe we try to offer support to existing students who find themselves in temporary financial difficulty due to redundancy.

There is a potential discount of up to 75% available for those who find themselves out of work due to redundancy at the time of re-registration. Students must be able to demonstrate that they have been made redundant and have not left employment voluntarily.

This package is open to existing students on all of UCEM’s courses from all countries.

You may also find helpful information on the LionHeart website at www.lionheart.org.uk. LionHeart is the benevolent fund for RICS members.

Principal’s Discretionary Fund

The Principal’s Discretionary Fund can award bursaries to assist current UCEM students in financial difficulties who may not meet the criteria of UCEM’s other bursary schemes.

This may include, for example, financial help for students who suffer serious ill health or are having to cope with a family bereavement. To apply for assistance from this fund, students should write, in the first instance, to the Principal setting out full details of their circumstances. All requests will be dealt with on a confidential basis.
