ITT bursaries

This information is for students who hold an offer of a place on our PGCE Primary and Secondary programme and are due to start in September 2017.

Assessment of your eligibility for the ITT Bursaries 2017-18 happens automatically during the enrolment process at Plymouth University. We assess your credentials against the nationally defined bursary criteria and then inform you of our assessment. You must then confirm that the details we have about you are accurate. 

You will be contacted in the very early stages of the academic year to gather your bank details and inform you about the monthly bursary payment arrangements which will commence in October and continue each month until July.

Therefore, there is no action that you need to take at this stage and you will be guided and prompted as and when required. However if you have any pressing questions please email


When we assess you for bursary entitlement we will ask you if you have been awarded a scholarship from a professional body and if you have we will ask for a scanned document as evidence of this scholarship. Scholarships are awarded in place of the ITT training bursary.
