Funding for PGCE students
PGCE students are able to qualify for the same statutory government support package as undergraduate students.
This means that you can qualify for a loan to cover the full cost of tuition as well as maintenance support in the form of grants and loans.
Teacher training bursaries
For September 2017 entry, depending on your specialism and level of attainment, home/EU PGCE trainees may be eligible to receive a Department for Education bursary.
You do not need to apply for a bursary – if you are enrolled and meet the eligibility criteria, you will begin receiving payment by instalments from October.

The Manchester Bursary for PGCE students
PGCE students are considered for the University's Manchester Bursary on a means-tested basis. We take into account the level of financial support available from government sources as well as the household income of the student.
As a consequence, those students eligible to receive a DfE training bursary will not be considered for the Manchester Bursary.
