Travel bursaries for contextual offer holders

We're offering free travel for contextual offer holders to post offer visit days and interviews.

As your application is eligible to be considered under the University's Contextual Offer policy, you're eligible for a travel bursary. Your travel costs to and from post offer visit days and interviews will be paid back to you once you've made a claim.

You'll need to complete two forms, one with your bank details and one with the details of your claim. We look forward to welcoming you to our parkland campus.

Completing your claim

Visitor expenses form

  • Complete the sections highlighted in orange and make sure to sign and date your claim
  • In the reason for your claim section you should write the event name and date, eg Offer holders day (date) or Interview (date)
  • You can either present completed forms and evidence when you visit us for your interview or visit day, or you can email the forms and evidence to ug-admissions@york.ac.uk. You can also post them to Marketing Recruitment, Admissions and Outreach, The Stables, Heslington, York, YO10 5JU
     

Receipts

  • You'll need to provide receipts with your claim and if you have any electric receipts you'll need to include a printed copy
