About our Scholarships Programme

Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students based on a range of factors including past and current academic achievement. Scholarship eligibility is automatically assessed once you have received an offer to study at the University. It is not necessary to submit a scholarship application.

Scholarships are normally awarded for the duration of the programme, subject to maintaining the required academic standard and contributing to University life.
