Students who started their course before 1 September 2012 can apply for a Course Grant to help with the costs of books, travel and other course-related costs. How much a student can get depends on their household income. It doesn’t have to be repaid.
Course Grants are only available to students studying an eligible:
- undergraduate course
- Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course
- Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE)
The following table shows how much a student can get based on their household income.
|Household income||Amount available|
|Less than £26,030||£288|
|£26,030 to £28,064||Course Grant of £288 less £1 for every £8.55 of your income over £26,030 (before tax)|
|More than £28,065||No grant|
Course Grants are paid in one lump sum directly to the student.
