Funds and bursaries available to you

The Student Fund

The Student Fund has been developed to support and relieve some of the financial pressures students face, making it possible to enrol and remain on our courses. It is open to any registered student whether undergraduate, postgraduate, home or overseas status.

How do I apply?

If you are applying to study with us in 2023 you will be able to apply to the Student Fund at point of your application. Any application to the Student Fund has no bearing on your application to study at LCDS. You will only receive an outcome to the Student Fund if you receive and accept an offer of a place. Any funds awarded will only be transferred once you have accepted your place and have formally registered with us.

Can I only apply for the Student Fund once?

No, once you are enrolled as a student you are able to apply to the Student Fund at any point in the year. If you were unsuccessful in your first application you can re-apply as we are aware financial situations can change. All students are invited to apply to the Student Fund for each subsequent year of their studies.

In 2021 - 2022 The Student Fund supported 93 students to the amount of around £150,000.

LCDS Bursary

The LCDS bursary is an income assessed bursary available to UK undergraduate students whose household income is under £42,000.

If you wish to be considered for a LCDS Bursary you need to complete an application to Student Finance England (or its equivalent) as early as possible in order to be income assessed. The bursary is awarded on a sliding scale and you could be awarded between £500-£1,500 per year for each year of training.

You can apply to Student Finance for income assessment even if you are not eligible for a loan, or do not wish to apply for a loan.
