Imperial Bursary

This bursary helps balance the cost of living in London.

All Home students from households with an annual income below £70,000 will receive an Imperial Bursary. Support is provided on a sliding scale from £1,000 to £5,000 per year.

The Bursary is available for every year that household income remains below the threshold.

How can my child apply?

There is no separate application process.

We automatically award bursaries on the basis of the household income information. This information is provided to your child's regional funding authority (e.g. Student Finance England for students from England).

To be considered, your child must apply for the government's Maintenance Loan, even if they do not intend to take it out. They must also consent to share their information with us.

The Bursary is paid in equal monthly installments throughout the year direct to your child's bank account.

The Bursary never has to be paid back.
