Dear TDA, MFL bursary please help!!!

Discussion in 'Thinking of teaching' started by Janna5, Aug 10, 2011.

  1. I'm an EEA student and I have been offered a place on a shortage subject (MFL Secondary)
    I am not eligible for Student finances grants because I have not been living in the UK for the 3 years prior to my PGCE only a year and 1/2 (and 4 years before that but I had to leave the UK for 2 years to care for a family member who was ill.)
    I could apply for a student loan as a EEA student but I do not wish to do so.
    Will I receive the bursary?

  3. No, as one of the eligibility criteria for the receipt of a teacher training bursary is a trainee's eligibility for student support. The full list of bursary eligibility criteria can be found in the TDA's training bursary funding manual for academic year 2011/12 (see Section 6, Eligibility criterion 5). Potential trainees are advised to speak to their ITT provider.
    Best wishes
