Need financial help getting to job interviews?

Do you need financial help getting to job or further study interviews? Then why not apply for a DMU Travel Bursary?

As part of our commitment to employability, you could receive up to £150 per academic year to travel to job/internship/placement/further study interviews and/or assessments. You can claim more than once, but the total claimed should not exceed £150 in any one academic year.

Can I apply?

The scheme is open to all current DMU UK students who are enrolled on an undergraduate degree/HND programme – either full or part-time; and have an income threshold of up to £50,000 per year.

How do I claim?

You will need to claim your bursary retrospectively, once you have attended the interview/assessment. This will require:

  1. Completion of the claim form, which is stamped by the interviewing organisation when you attend an interview/assessment;
  2. Attachment of relevant travel receipts;
  3. A copy of the initial invite to the interview/assessment.

Any conditions?

You must claim your travel bursary in the same academic year as the interview/assessment takes place. Late claims cannot be forwarded to the next academic year.

There is a limited amount of money available, so the Travel Bursary will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the annual fund is exhausted, no additional funds will be available until the start of a new academic year.

All submitted claims will be assessed at the end of each term – in December, March and July, and will be paid directly into your bank account within four weeks of the end of term assessments.

Where do I collect the form?

You can print off the claim form here. Then complete the form, add your evidence and submit it to the Student Gateway reception. For any further queries and information, contact The Student Gateway.
