What is the Bursary?

NUSU is committed to ensuring students can take full advantage of their time at university. We recognise that financial obstacles can arise which prevents students from accessing the activities we offer. The Participation Bursary aims to remove these barriers to participation by helping cover some of the costs of getting involved. Students can receive up to £280 per academic year. These amounts may change at the discretion of the Student Union and the information on this page will be updated accordingly.

At NUSU we aim to create an atmosphere in which all people feel valued, respected and have equal access. We’re excited to launch the 'Earn Your Stripes' initiative to champion and recognise how inclusive our societies are! Every society can be awarded a bronze, silver, or gold level inclusivity badge which will feature on their society profiles.

Inclusive Newcastle also includes programmes and initiatives aimed to increase engagement with sport, remove barriers and offer support to all students. This includes our disability sports programme, designed to help students keep active, have some fun and enjoy healthy competition.
