Financial Support

We don’t want financial background to be a barrier to anyone applying to the Dyson Institute and can offer financial support with the expenses that you may incur throughout the application process.

Travel expenses

We will contribute to accommodation and travel expenses for activities that involve visiting the Dyson Institute at the Dyson Technology campus is Malmesbury, such as Assessment Days and pre-joining events. We will offer reimbursement (with proof of purchase) for:

• UK (exc. NI) applicants – up to £150
• Northern Irish and European applicants – up to £250
• International applications – up to £1000

When we hold activities on campus, we'll also arrange a shuttle from/to Chippenham at the appropriate times, which is easily accessible by train and has several cost-effective accommodation options.

If booking travel and/or accommodation yourself would affect your ability to attend an event on campus, please get in touch with the Recruitment & Admissions team, who will be happy to help.

Joining fund

The Dyson Institute Joining Fund offers individual bursaries of £1,000 to students who may need support with some of the start-up costs of joining Higher Education – such as purchasing textbooks, travelling to their new home and participating in social events.

The bursary is awarded in full to eligible students shortly after A Level Results Day on confirmation that they will take their place at the Dyson Institute.

You can apply for support from the Dyson Institute Joining Fund if you meet one of the following eligibility criteria:

  • You currently live in a household in receipt of benefits.
  • You are estranged from your parents.

More information on how to apply for the bursary, and the supporting evidence needed, will be shared with you if you are offered at place at the Dyson Institute.
