Bursaries and scholarships - 2024-25

Bursaries and scholarships are tax-free amounts of money you may be eligible to receive to train in certain subjects. You do not need to pay them back.

You’ll need a first, 2:1, 2:2 degree or a PhD or master’s degree to be eligible for a bursary, as well as meeting the bursary scheme’s individual terms and conditions.

Scholarships have different eligibility criteria and are generally available to applicants with a 1st, 2:1, master’s or PhD, though may be awarded to a graduate with a 2:2 and significant relevant experience. They are awarded to high calibre trainees who pass a robust application and interview process, separate to the ITT application. If you qualify for a scholarship, you will not get a bursary.

The relevant scholarship body gives a package of additional benefits:

  • tax-free scholarship
  • membership to the professional body
  • subject specialist events and webinars held by professional bodies
  • online and face-to-face workshops across the country
  • subject specialist mentors and coaching
  • community of scholars (ex-scholars, teachers, subject leaders)
  • access to classroom resources
  • continuing professional development (CPD) and networking events during ITT year and Alumni

To apply for a scholarship, you should apply to the relevant scholarship body – for more details see below.

If you’re going to train as a languages or physics teacher in 2024-25, you do not need to be eligible for student finance to be eligible for a bursary or scholarship.
