Assessing candidate suitability

Candidates' suitability for these scholarships will be assessed via both the scholarship statement and the diploma application form.

The CV and transcripts submitted with the programme application may be used when assessing scholarship suitability. However, we recommend that any information you feel is important for scholarship assessment is highlighted within the scholarship statement.

Candidates are also encouraged to provide context where necessary; for example, if success has been achieved through individual determination, ambition or motivation.

Please note that the scholarship supporting statement is not used during the admissions process.
