Award Amount

Students can claim up to £50. Please note that this is the total amount available over both years. If your purchases total more than this amount, you will be reimbursed for the first £50. It is possible to make multiple applications of smaller amounts.

Examples of relevant items include books, journals, software or other similar items that are relevant to your academic work. Purchases must be made through a bona fide bookseller, publisher or similar organisation. This can include online retailers. Students can only claim for purchases made between 1st October and 30th September in the current academic year. Students should ensure that they also apply to other funding sources such as department or faculty grants.
