Bursary level awarded
|Valid entries and labels
This field records the training bursary awarded to the student. Bursary levels will vary according to the level of study of the student, their degree classification if applicable and the subject specialism in which they wish to train to teach.
A postgraduate student will only hold one bursary – either the 'Core Bursary Award' (codes 7, 8, 9 or A) or a 'Scholarship' (code 4). Undergraduate students on a course in maths, physics, or maths and physics which leads to QTS can qualify for an 'Undergraduate bursary' (code B).
Further guidance on the types of bursary, and the amounts available, may be found in the NCTL's 'Training Bursary Guide'.
Bursaries at postgraduate level
Bursaries at undergraduate level
Code B 'Undergraduate bursary' is currently the only bursary available to those studying at undergraduate level; if the qualification is in the subject of maths, physics, or maths and physics; and leads to qualified teacher status (QTS).
This bursary is awarded in the final year of a student’s course, but it is expected the valid entry will be returned in every year for the student to be eligible.
