Undergraduate bursary

A training bursary for final year undergraduates of £9,000 is available for trainees on secondary mathematics and physics courses that lead to qualified teacher status (QTS).

The bursary is:

  • available to undergraduate trainees who enrol on a QTS course beginning in the 2021 to 2022 academic year 
  • payable in the final year of their course

The same £9,000 training bursary is available to trainees on an opt-in secondary undergraduate mathematics, physics, computing or languages course that leads to QTS.

Trainees who are on an undergraduate course that leads to the award of QTS and also leads to the award of a Master’s degree receive a £9,000 bursary in both the penultimate and final years of their course. This means that the trainee will have received a total of £18,000 by the point of completion.

Troops to Teachers undergraduate bursary

A training bursary worth £40,000 is available for undergraduate veterans who have left full time employment from the:

  • British Army
  • Royal Air Force
  • Royal Navy

They must have left employment no more than 5 years before the start of their course.

The bursary will be paid in equal monthly instalments in each of the final two years of the course, with £20,000 payable in each year. The ITT provider should confirm the actual payment schedule with the trainee. The bursary is available to undergraduate trainees who enrol on an eligible ITT course that leads to QTS in secondary biology, physics, chemistry, computing, mathematics or languages, beginning in the 2021 to 2022 academic year.

A full breakdown of eligible subjects can be found in Annex A: list of subjects eligible for a bursary. No other ITT courses will attract a training bursary, regardless of a trainee’s degree class.
