School Direct Benefits


Bursaries for recent graduates:

If you graduated less than three years ago, or wish to teach in one of the eligible subjects, you may qualify for a government bursary. These are designed to help you with your tuition fees of £9,000 and cost of living during the training year. The amount depends on your degree class and the subject you teach, and could be anything up to £30,000. You may also qualify for a student loan to cover the cost of your tuition fee.

If you wish to train to teach physics, maths, chemistry, geography, modern languages or computing, and have a 2.1 degree or higher, you can apply for a tax-free scholarship of up to £30,000. This scholarship replaces the bursary that you would receive from the government – and comes with extra perks.
