We provide free laptops for all our students and a travel bursary for those whose studies are funded through the Student Loans Company.
Bloomsbury Institute’s laptop offer is part of our commitment to making higher education accessible to everyone. To ensure that you have all that you need to complete your studies with us, we have pledged to provide a free laptop to every new Bloomsbury Institute student.
You’ll receive a free laptop when you begin your studies. This enables you to fully engage in all course-related and extra-curricular activities. You can even keep the laptop once you’ve successfully completed your degree with us.
All students who enrol with Bloomsbury Institute are eligible for a laptop. This applies to both domestic and international students, studying any of our undergraduate or postgraduate degrees.
Once you have successfully enrolled on one of our courses, and have had your fees confirmed, our SEWS team will contact you to provide you with your laptop. You do not have to pay for your laptop at all, there are no hidden costs. For further information, please see our terms and conditions.
The free laptop makes me really proud, because I live with other students who don’t get the same benefits where they study. No one struggles to keep up with their work, because the laptop is there to help with research and assignments.
What is the travel bursary?
Our travel bursary is equivelant to the cost of a Transport for London Travelcard for Zones 1 – 6 (currently £189). The TfL Travelcard allows unlimited use of London Buses, DLR, Overground, Trams, Underground and National Rail services in the capital. Bloomsbury Institute students, whose studies are funded by the Student Loans Company, recieve an additional £189 as part of their loan payments so that they do not have to worry about the cost of public transport, both to classes and for any other means.
How do I apply?
There is no application process for the travel bursary. As long as you have opted-in for ‘Student Support’ in your student loan application, the additional funds are provided with your student loan.
Please note that as this bursary is administered via the Student Loans Company, the bursary is available to home students only. The travel bursary is also connected to attendance, so you do have to be in class to get paid.
This laptop is turning out be a great companion for me. It is helping me in my studies in every possible way. I really appreciate the initiative.”
Bloomsbury Institute is the best university in the UK; sometimes students can’t afford a laptop, so it’s a great idea.”
