Headstart Bursary & Payment Information
We may be able to offer you assistance if financial hardship would prevent you accepting the offer of a place.
However, as a charitable trust we only have limited funds and as some schools are able to help, we’d like you to ask them first if they’d be willing to support you.
If you do need to apply for a bursary you must tell us in writing on your application form and send us the supporting documents we ask for. Please send us a photocopy of those documents and sign them. Please also write the words "true and most recent documents, to the best of my knowledge" on the photocopies that you send.
To download the forms you need, and to understand how we’ll assess you click here. We’re sorry, but if we do not receive the information when you first apply, we won’t be able to consider you for a bursary.
Course fees and how to pay
The cost to attend a course is described by the numeric part of the course code eg CAR/310 explains the fee to attend Headstart in Cardiff is £310. This fee includes our payment charge, all accommodation and meals during the course, but not travel costs to and from the university.
We charge an unsubsidised rate of £465 to international students. We define a home student as someone who holds a British passport and whose home address (family residence) is in the UK. If you cannot satisfy both criteria, we class you as an international student and will charge you an unsubsidised rate of £465. We reserve the right to ask you for evidence of nationality or your home address to make sure that we are charging you the correct course fee.

If your School is paying...
If your course is being funded by your school or another organisation we ask that you send a letter from them to us confirming this when you return your signed acceptance form and code of conduct.
You are not asked to pay any fee until you have accepted an offer of a Headstart place. But once you have accepted a course place and paid the fee, this is non refundable.
We reserve the right to cancel or change any aspect of a course without notice. Cancellation may result in a suitable alternative being offered, or a full refund.
