The Scholarships are open to full-time students and part-time students taking at least 4 modules in the preceding year.

The criteria to be used to select recipients of the Stage 1 and Stage 2 Foundation Scholarships are outlined below.

Only students on pathways run through the School will be considered.  Ranking is on the basis of performance throughout the year so the process is conducted after the June examination meeting.  Mean marks for modules taken in the School (minimum of 4 modules at Stage 1 and 5 at Stage 2) are computed.  Students are ranked according to these marks.  Prizes are awarded to the students with the highest mean module marks regardless of pathway.

They will be awarded as follows:

Level 1        2 Scholarships of £300
Level 2        2 Scholarships of £300
