Accounting and Finance Division Top Ten Achievement Scholarship

How to apply

The Top Ten Achievement Scholarship is open to all students on the programme and both UK/EU and International students are eligible. There is no need to make a formal application. 

How are the scholarships awarded?

The Top Ten Achievement Scholarship will be awarded and paid when the scholarship holders recommence their studies at the University in the academic year following their achievement, and will be offered either as a fees deduction or maintenance paid directly into a student’s bank account in monthly instalments.

For students spending their third year on a placement in industry, or studying abroad as a year abroad, this means that a scholarship awarded at the end of their second year will normally be paid at the start of their final year. Similarly, students who become temporary leavers for a valid reason, such as ill health, will also have their award deferred until their return to study.
