We cannot accept late applications. If your application is successful, you will receive confirmation in an email with an attached letter.

How we award scholarships 

This is a competitive process and not all applications will be successful. 

There are 3 stages to the shortlisting process:

  • we check that you meet the eligibility criteria
  • we score your academic record and qualifications on your PGT application form
  • a selection panel will decide on who gets the scholarships. The panel will consider your supporting statement, alongside your academic achievements to date.

The decision of the scholarship panel is final.
