Pathways to Birmingham Financial Support

There is a range of financial support available to students who successfully complete a Pathways to Birmingham programme and become a student at the University.

The amount of money students are eligible to receive is based on a range of criteria including their performance on the programme, the results they achieve at the end of Year 13 (or equivalent), and their personal circumstances.

In total, students could be eligible to receive up to £3,500 per year of study (for 2023 entry), jointly funded by the University and philanthropic donations. An example of one of the awards associated with successful completion of Pathways to Birmingham is the Chamberlain Award.

Students will receive further information about financial support once they start their programme.

To be eligible for Pathways to Birmingham financial support, applicants should be classified by Student Finance England and the University as UK for fees purposes. Applicants should also be deemed eligible for maintenance support by the Student Loans Company.
