Potential Scholarships 2019/20

Entry Year Awards - Ongoing

Potential Scholarships are funded by generous donations from University supporters and alumni. 

To be eligible for the following scholarships you must be in your year of entry to the University, and on the first year of your course (or year 0 if doing a foundation year, with the exception of Malone for which students must apply in year 1). If you are successful awards are payable in your first and subsequent years of undergraduate study. Most of these awards are competitive. This means there are a limited number of awards which will go to the students who most closely meet the relevant criteria.
