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