Apply for a Bursary as Soon as Possible

If you are eligible, you can apply for a bursary between May and September each year. The bursary voucher is valid until mid-October. Check the UKCAT website for the exact dates on a given year. Note that only UK and EU students are currently eligible and that you will need to provide supporting evidence. It takes 5 working days to issue vouchers, but apply as soon as possible to be sure you get your voucher in time.

Applying early means one less thing to think about, and gives you the opportunity to chase up the application if there are any problems. Remember to keep an eye on your email spam folder, in case your UKCAT bursary email ends up there.

Already taken the UKCAT?

You can only use a bursary to pay for the UKCAT if you apply before sitting the test. If you have sat the UKCAT, and have a bursary that you can’t use, then you can apply for a refund: contact Pearson VUE.
