  • Fulfilment of all academic requirements and satisfactory progress being made to the next level of their course by applicants who are existing students

  • Scholarships will only be confirmed after enrolment on a course and will be available for a maximum of 3 years as an undergraduate and 1 year as a postgraduate. However, selection onto the Scheme is not automatic year on year and all scholars must reapply each year
  • Sports scholars will be expected to comply with the requirements of the Scheme and with any modifications the University may make to it throughout the period of the scholarship.
