Funding by subject

With tax-free funding available while you train to teach, it’s a great time to think about joining the profession. Different subjects attract varying levels of funding – you can use this section to see what support you could receive when you train to teach the subject you love.

Your eligibility for financial support, and the amount you can expect to receive, will depend on the subject you choose to teach and your degree classification or highest relevant academic qualification.

Remember, if your degree isn’t in the subject you wish to teach, you may be eligible for a funded course to increase your subject knowledge before starting your training.

Priority subjects

These subjects attract the highest range of bursaries and scholarships. 

Financial support for other subjects

Bursaries are also available in a number of other subjects – alternatively, you can take advantage of tuition fee and maintenance loans to support you during your training, or look into salaried options such as School Direct (salaried) and Teach First
