Donate to Bursaries for students


The Oak Hill Bursary Fund provides as much support as it can to students in financial need and we would love to see more students supported by it, enabling wider access to College.

We are now offering three bursaries: the newly launched Access Bursary, the Closing the Gap Bursary, and the Partnership Bursary. 

To support our students in this way, include the term 'Bursary Fund' in the donation details.


Access Bursary

We want to provide deep-rooted theological training for all who are called to ministry, regardless of ethnicity, sex, and economic or social background, and we long that our life together at College reflects the breadth of God’s people and plans. We would love to have more students who are female, or from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background, or are from a low socioeconomic background. This bursary covers their tuition fees and, if they are full time, could also include a means-tested grant towards their living expenses. An Access Bursary application can be made when an applicant accepts an offer of a place to study at Oak Hill.

Partnership Bursary 

For 2022 entry, new students for whom studying at Oak Hill would be their first undergraduate qualification may apply for a Partnership Bursary. With this bursary, the College would consider matching the support pledged to them both by their church and by individual supporters (excluding family members), up to a maximum of 50% of the tuition fee, whether they are studying full or part time. This is reviewed annually for the duration of their programme.

Eligible applicants for this bursary must have accepted the offer of a place at Oak Hill before applying for it.  The closing date for Partnership Bursary applications is 12noon on Monday 18 July 2022.

Closing the Gap Bursary

This is designed to make up the last bit of shortfall for a student’s budget and so a student may apply for this bursary when they have explored all other funding sources. The maximum a student can receive as a Closing the Gap Bursary is usually £3,000.  There are four application points throughout the academic year (30 September, 31 January, 31 March and 31 May) and they must be enrolled as an Oak Hill student before submitting an application.

We long for there to be no barriers to people being equipped to serve the Lord, which was at the heart of the College's vision when it first opened. Training at Oak Hill has been an immense blessing to me and so I am really excited about the students who might be able to join us through the new Access Bursary."
