Please complete all sections of the scholarship application form and send the required documents before the deadline.

Nature of the scholarship
These scholarships will be awarded to those candidates who most closely meet the criteria for the award which are provided below.

The scholarship decision will be made by an awarding committee and all decisions of that awarding committee are final. The scholarship will be available in the form of a tuition fee reduction and if you are awarded a scholarship your fee will be adjusted before enrolment. If you are a part-time student your fee will be adjusted proportionally at the start of each academic year.

Application process
Applications must consist of a fully completed scholarship application form, which includes a statement of a maximum of 750 words which directly addresses both criteria set out below. You must also submit evidence to prove that you have achieved a 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in your undergraduate degree. This may be in the form of a degree certificate or official university transcript.
