UK Student Bursaries

For those unable to afford the full fees of Chefs Academy courses, we offer a small number of means-tested bursaries for UK students.

The maximum bursary limit available to any candidate is 30% of course fees although awards greater than 20% of fees are necessarily few in number.

UK Bursary Eligibility

Eligible students or primary course funders (parents/guardians or partners) may apply for a bursary if they meet the eligibility requirements below:

  • Student must be resident in the UK to be eligible for a bursary.
  • Student must have been accepted on to a Chefs Academy course and received a letter of acceptance prior to application for a bursary.
  • Where a Duologi Loan is available for the course in question, the student should apply for this prior to applying for a bursary.
  • The primary funder of the course (student or parent) must be able to demonstrate that they are unable to fund the full cost of the course through income or savings.
  • The primary funder of the course must have a household income assessment of less than £36,000 a year to be eligible.

Applicants will need to provide proof of household income and savings so we can assess your eligibility for any award.

What counts as household income

Your household income is your taxable income plus the income of:

  • your parents - if you’re under 25 and live with them or depend on them financially;
  • one of your parents and their partner - if you’re under 25 and live with them or depend on them financially;
  • your partner - if you’re over 25 and live with them;

If you are financing your child’s education

Your household income is the combined income of:

  • you
  • your child
  • your partner

If you are supporting your partner’s application

Your household income is the combined income of you and your partner.
