Scholarships for international students

Recipients of Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships for International Students are advised in their programme offer that they have been awarded a scholarship.

Formal offers for these scholarships are issued through the entrance scholarship system in eVision. The first round of these will go out with the main round of entrance scholarship offers in early October, scholarships will then be issued on a rolling basis. 

Recipients of these scholarships will need to accept their scholarship offer in eVision once it has been issued (these students will be included in reminder communications to entrance scholarship recipients.)
