Travel bursary

You may be eligible to a contribution towards travel costs to an Offer Holder Day.

The bursary is worth up to £100 per eligible applicant (for economy public transport costs only, receipts will be required). 

How do I claim?

Visit the information fair in Parkinson Court during the offer holder day and speak to staff in the travel bursary area (next to the Transition to Leeds stand) for details of how to claim. Our team will then get in touch after the event with a travel claim form for you to complete and return along with a copy of your travel receipts or online booking confirmation. 

Please note we’re unable to reimburse any travel without receipts.

If you have any queries email the Travel Bursary Team at 

You'll also be able to speak to members of staff and current students about the Access to Leeds module, support via the Plus Programme and ways we can help with your transition to the University.
