Fees and Funding for Physics and Modern Foreign Languages training

Information for Physics and Engineers teach Physics

Funding for living expenses:

Bursaries

The Department for Education is providing a tax-free bursary of £28,000 to eligible students starting courses in September 2024, to help with your living expenses during your training.   You do not need to apply for the bursary and it will be paid automatically to eligible candidates in 10 monthly instalments from mid-October. 

You can find further details of amounts and eligibility criteria on the Get into Teaching website.

Scholarships

Alternatively high-quality candidates can apply for an Institute of Physics scholarship of £30,000.  Like the bursary this is payable in 10 monthly instalments from Mid-October and is to help with your living expenses.  If your scholarship application is successful you will receive these payments instead of the bursary.

International relocation payment (IRP)

The IRP is to help with some of the relocation expenses students incur when moving to England.  If you are eligible, you’ll receive a single payment of £10,000 from the Department for Education around the end of your first term training in England.  The Get into Teaching website has further details about the eligibility criteria for the International Relocation Payment.

Course tuition fees:

The tuition fee for courses starting in September 2024 is £22,350 and you will need to have additional funding or financial sponsorship to cover these fees.  Tuition Fees are payable in two instalments (50% when you enrol at the beginning of September and 50% at the start of the second term in January).

The training bursary, scholarship and international relocation payments are to help cover your living expenses during your training (including travel expenses to placement schools).  You cannot use the bursary or scholarship payments or the IRP to pay your tuition fees as the first instalment of your fees will be payable before you receive the bursary, scholarship or IRP payments.  If you require a student visa to enter the UK you will also need to show UKVI evidence that you have sufficient personal funds to cover the full tuition fee as part of your visa application.
