The bursary can be used for all essential materials and living costs to ensure that you have an excellent student experience.

In order to be eligible, UCMK must be your place of study and the bursary is dependent upon you staying at UCMK for the duration of that year.

You will not be eligible for the bursary if you subsequently interrupt your course to a later academic year.

How do I apply for the UCMK Bursary?

Students do not need to apply for this bursary – they will be awarded automatically if students meet the eligibility criteria, and they will be notified via email.
