How do I apply for a Liverpool John Moores University bursary?

You do not need to apply for a bursary. We will receive details of your household income from the Student Loans Company and can check your eligibility directly. We pay our bursaries in two instalments – November and April. 

What is the deadline for applying for my funding?

You need to apply for your funding by the end of May. You can still apply after this date, but if you do apply later you may not receive your money for the start of term.
