Provost's Award

This scholarship offers the very best, high achieving students the equivalent of a 100% discount on fees. A small number of awards will be available at each intake for students applying to Foundation and Undergraduate Programmes. To apply for a Provost's Award, students must first apply for their chosen programme. Students who meet the criteria for the highest High Achiever i.e. entitled to the 30% Scholarship will then be invited to complete a second application for a Provost’s Award, which will include a personal statement about their achievements and why they think they deserve the award. Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to the campus for a formal interview before the final awards are made.
