About this scholarship

How to apply

There is no application process as these scholarships are awarded on the basis of students' academic performance in end-of-year assessments. This is decided within the academic school after the examination boards have met.

Receipt of scholarships

These scholarships are paid in the autumn of the year they are awarded. They are partly funded by the university's ambassadors group.

We have two different types of sports scholarships:

Elite athletes / Elite disabled athletes scholarships

These are for students who have reached a national level of competition or performance and have the potential and dedication to reach world-class performance level.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
