RUK Travel Bursary


RUK Travel Bursary
England, Wales or N. Ireland students

The RUK (Rest of the UK) Travel Bursary of £1,500 will be paid to all new students beginning their studies in September 2022 onwards, identified as an RUK (Rest of UK) student for fee status purposes. This includes direct entrants to Year 2 or 3.

Heriot-Watt University appreciates that moving away from home for the first time can be daunting. This bursary should allow you to return home at several points throughout the academic year.

How to apply
Students do not need to complete an application form as these awards will be made automatically provided that you are an RUK student in their first year of study at Heriot-Watt University

How will I be paid?
The bursary will be made in three instalments of £500 in October, February and April.

Further information
Students who withdraw are required to repay any overpaid bursary based on a pro-rata of bursary paid to the point of withdrawal.

 This bursary will only be available for your first year (one year only)
