As you possibly know our accounting year runs from 1 January to the end of December.

Over the last five or six months a number of students have been granted a bursary and for various reasons have not decided to go ahead with their course.

These bursaries have now been collected in and have to be used up by the end of the year.

It is quite difficult for the accounting department to carry things forward to the next year.

They like to start each year with a clean start.

This means that right now, we have quite a lot of bursary to give away- but it’s dropping every single day.

Last week it was €66,000 .

Due to the fantastic response of people applying for bursaries we now have £20,474 – ( €25,449) – And once it’s gone, it’s GONE!

Please make sure that everyone you are talking to is aware of this- although there will be bursaries available next year. Right at this moment in time, we can be a little bit more generous than we normally would.
