Pre-ITE: Get your funding in place

Most UK physics ITE students are eligible for a government bursary. Make sure that the paperwork is in place before you begin your course so that you’re not chasing up funding whilst you are trying to prepare lessons.

Some universities offer means tested grants, so if your training will be university-based, get in touch with student finance to find out what they can offer and if you are eligible.
