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)
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.
