ACCOMMODATION

If you need University-endorsed accommodation during your studies, you’ll be delighted to know we set aside bedrooms in several of our accommodation blocks for new postgraduate or mature undergraduate students. This enables you to live alongside other students of a similar age/level of study.

Teacher Training Bursaries and Scholarships

There are three types of funding available for teacher training - depending on your circumstances, you could receive all three:

  1. Tax-free bursary or scholarship
  2. Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan
  3. Additional financial support if you’re a parent or have a disability

With bursaries and early career payments totalling £34,000 for some subjects and qualifications, now is a great time to train to teach.
