Choosing a Tier
There are 3 levels of the bursary for which a student can apply for. These levels are based on the different joining fees of NUSU clubs and societies in addition to other costs a student may incur for their participation.
- Tier 1 offers a £120 bursary
- Tier 2 offers a £180 bursary
- Tier 3 offers up to £280 capped bursary
Our research shows that the Tier 1 amount can adequately assist the student in covering the cost of participating with NUSU societies and other NUSU activities such as Give It A Go and Go Volunteer. However, if a student wishes to join the sports centre and/or a NUSU club, then we recommend applying for the Tier 2 amount. If a student feels that they require less or more than the previous two levels of bursary on offer, then they should apply for Tier 3 and account for these costs in their application.
