In the meantime, because of the relatively limited changes proposed for the 2018 Regulations these pages can still used for general guidance purposes, although applicants should note that in some cases eligibility and the levels of financial assistance provided by the Department under the new Regulations may be subject to change.

Year 1 applications are NOW OPEN for those students hoping to go to University in September/ October 2018 – apply using our new Student Awards Online (Alpha) Service.

Other continuing students will be contacted directly and should not apply until invited to do so.

Introduced in 2014, the Microgaming Bursary provides funding for exceptional students from the Isle of Man whose financial circumstances may otherwise stops them from attending or continuing at university.

The scheme is open to any student who is eligible for a maintenance grant and has secured a place on an approved undergraduate degree course (any subject). Students who received the bursary last year should submit a new application, giving details of how they have met the requirements agreed to in their previous application.

Applications for the 2017/18 academic year close Friday 25 August 2017 – don't let your potential go to waste!
