Bursaries and Funding

You could get up to £24,000 tax-free while you train. Your eligibility for financial support, and the amount you can expect to receive, will depend on the subject you choose to teach and your degree classification, or highest relevant academic qualification. If your degree isn’t in the subject you wish to teach, you may be eligible for a funded online course, in order to increase your subject knowledge before starting your training.

Please go to the ‘Get into Teaching’ website to find out your eligibility for a bursary. You don’t need to apply for a bursary – if you are enrolled on a non-salaried postgraduate course and meet the eligibility criteria, you will begin receiving payments automatically by your chosen teacher training provider. You will receive more information on the arrangements and how this is distributed, prior to the start of your course.
