Bursary Queries FAQs
Q: When will I find out if I have won a bursary?
A: If you are a winner of a bursary we will be in contact with you by the 31 October 2017. If you are not a winning recipient of a bursary you will not be contacted separately. Due to the large number of applications we receive this is unfortunately not feasible for us to do.
Q: Can I write more than 200 words?
A: Please do stick to the word limit but you won't be penalised if you go over or under the word limit within 25 words.
Q: What nationality do you need to be to apply?
A: The bursaries are open to all students of all nationalities.
Q: Do I need to have been accepted on a course to apply?
A: Yes ideally. We can only pay the bursary direct to a university so you will need to be accepted on a course for us to be able to do that.
Q: What if I have been accepted on several courses and not yet made up my mind which one I will go to?
A: Please just list all likely universities that you considering and that you have been accepted on a course at.
Q: Does it matter when my course starts?
A: For our 2017 bursary, you will needed to have started your course before the end of January 2018, hence a September/October 2017 or January 2018 start date is accepted or it is fine if you are already on a course that will roll over to 2018 e.g. A PhD or DL course.
Q: Are the bursaries awarded for financial or academic reasons?
A: We award bursaries for a variety of reasons. The judges look at the 200-word free text to assess the most compelling arguments.
Q: Does the course have to be a full time program?
A: No – it can be part time, full time or online/distance learning.
The very best of luck with your application and your future studies.
