Bank Statements for Maintenance Grants

If you apply for a Maintenance Grant, are studying outside the UK or are using a distance learning provider then we will need to see your Bank Account details. You will need to provide us with a Bank Statement with your name, address and full account details on it. We will be unable to make any payments to you until we have your Bank Statement. This applies to any students who are providing us with new Bank details.

Microgaming Bursary

The Microgaming Education Bursary is open to any student who is eligible for a DESC maintenance grant and has secured a place on an approved undergraduate degree course in any subject.
