A transcript is a listing of all the modules you took and the marks you received when you did your first degree. If you do not have a transcript, please contact your university as soon as possible as ask them to send you a copy of your transcript. If your institution offers the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) instead of an academic transcript, you will need to provide access to your electronic record.
A past tutor, employer or tutor on the postgraduate course you are applying for should write your reference letter, i.e. someone who is aware of your academic ability and potential. It should address the following points:
Your applicant number will be on your offer letter. You must include your applicant number on your scholarship application. We will not consider any applications that do not contain this number.
Once we have received your application, we will acknowledge receipt by email where possible. If we receive your application close to the deadline you will not receive an acknowledgement but just the outcome of your application (if you have been successful).
The scholarships committee makes the decision on the award of scholarships. Once decisions have been made, the successful applicants will be emailed informing them of the outcome. The large volume of applications means we will not contact unsuccessful students.
Please note that the committee will not undertake or participate in any individual correspondence with applicants either before or after the decision has been made.
The decision of the committee is final.
If you are awarded a scholarship, we will, in the first instance, inform you by email.
On confirmation of receipt of the email and your postal address we will send you an official letter informing you of the details of your award.
You must formally accept the scholarship and the conditions of the award in writing.
The conditions of the award will require your participation in promotional activities for the university. This may include attendance at receptions and social events and/or provision of testimonials and articles for use in publicity materials and reports.
The scholarship must be used for the academic course and during year for which they were applied and awarded. If you change course or defer the year of entry, the offer of a scholarship will be withdrawn.
