Funding and Fees
Scholarships and Financial Incentives
There are three types of funding available for teacher training – depending on your circumstances, you could receive all three:
- Tax-free bursary or scholarship
- Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan
- Additional financial support if you’re a parent or have a disability
You may be eligible for a teaching bursary or scholarship when training to teach.
These are tax-free amounts of money you 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.
For a scholarship, each professional scholarship body sets its own criteria. These bodies include:
- the Royal Society of Chemistry (chemistry)
- the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (maths)
- the Institute of Physics (physics)
For information on Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships visit Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships website.
Webinars are run by the Maths Scholarship Team. The Maths Scholarships Team will be streaming live, talking about the Scheme and answering questions such as: how it is different to the government’s normal bursary for initial teacher training; what additional benefits do Maths Scholars receive as part of the Maths Scholarship; how can the Scheme help an ITT trainee during their initial teacher training year and NQT year.
