Gateway bursary

The Gateway bursary scheme provides financial support to students at the University of Birmingham undertaking internships or work experience relevant to their future career.

The aim of the bursary is to assist students in improving their personal and professional development by allowing them to take up critical experiences they may otherwise not be able to afford.
