Terms and conditions

  • The award will be by way of a fee reduction, and is therefore only redeemable by enrolling on the BPTC.
  • We allow students to compete for more than one BPP award, but no student will be awarded more than £5,000 in total.  
  • We do not take account of any external or non-BPP awards (e.g. Inns scholarships).
  • Students who hold an existing bursary award from BPP may apply for a scholarship to receive a named award and to increase the amount (i.e. the named award would replace the bursary if successful).
