MORE INFO: Student Funding Adviser T: 0131 474 0000 E: studentfunding@qmu.ac.uk W: www.qmu.ac.uk/study-here/ fees-and-funding/scholarships-for-new- students/ QMU is committed to ensuring that suitably qualified candidates are not deterred from investing in their education on the grounds of ability to pay. For that reason, we will offer the non-repayable bursary package outlined below to all eligible students from the Rest of the UK, outside Scotland. QMU will use the residual household income figure calculated yearly by the Student Loans Company (SLC) when assessing a student’s bursary entitlement during each year of their studies. The Bursary will be a cash award, enabling students to use their bursary as they wish eg contribution to accommodation or living costs or payment towards tuition fees. It is paid in three instalments over the academic year: 25% in Semester One, 50% early in Semester Two and 25% near the end of Semester Two.
