Academic Excellence (Rest of UK) Scholarship-2017

Brief Description

The University will award scholarships of £3,000 for each year of study for Rest of UK (RUK) fee status students entering the University for the first time in September 2017 who achieve academic excellence in their entry qualifications. Academic excellence is defined as obtaining AAB or above at A-level or in equivalent qualifications. The scholarship is paid for each year of undergraduate degree study based at the University, in which tuition fees are due. (So if tuition fees are only due for three years of a four year Honours degree, you will only receive the scholarship for those three years.) Receipt of the scholarship in subsequent years is subject to satisfactory academic performance.
