Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards

Payments of most scholarships, bursaries and awards will be made twice-yearly direct into your bank account. The first payment will be at the start of December, and the second will be at the start of March. We will contact you at the start of term asking you to enter your bank details onto your student record. Please ensure you do this by the deadline given to ensure that there are no delays in making your payments.

Please bring sufficient funds for the first week of term to allow for the cheques to clear and any delays with your maintenance loans/grants.

How to Obtain a Letter to Open a Bank Account

When opening a bank account in the UK, you may be asked to provide proof that you are a registered student at Aberystwyth University.  This will take the form of a letter.  Included in this letter will be your home and term address taken from your student record along with your full name, which should be consistent with your passport.  Before you can request a letter you will need to have completed registration, and you will need to ensure that your details are correct on your Student Record.

For all students, except those studying in the International English Centre, bank letters MUST be requested through your Student Record on the web and will be available to print from your Student Record.

Please note that before you can obtain a printout you will need to have some credit on your Aber Card.  Please follow instructions which will be emailed to you for further details on how to ensure your Aber Card is ready for you on arrival.

Students studying in the International English Centre must request and collect their bank letters from the International English Centre (top floor in Cledwyn Building).’
