Aspire bursary

If you are a Reaseheath College student thinking about progressing onto degree level study at University Centre Reaseheath, did you know you could receive a £1,000 Aspire bursary in your first academic year? 

The Aspire bursary is available to any student who moves directly from a Level 3 programme at Reaseheath College onto a full-time or part-time higher education programme at University Centre Reaseheath (directly funded full-time home students only).

As long as you maintain an average attendance of over 90%, the bursary will be paid in two instalments of £500 in February and June via BACS transfer in your first academic year.

For more information about the financial support available to you as a student at UCR, please visit our finance and fees page.
