Vice-Chancellor's Attainment Awards

This year, St Mary’s University is introducing a large number of new academic scholarships, worth £2,000 for each year of your degree programme whilst you study at St Mary’s University (a maximum of three years for an undergraduate degree, whilst additional funding for one year may be available if you progress to a PGCE programme).

How to apply

We will award scholarships to students who show demonstrable merit or potential, which could be evidenced through:

  • Interview or audition
  • Achievement at work or other relevant experience
  • Exam results such as A-Level grades (indicator ABB, subject to individual circumstances), BTEC grades (indicator DDM), or equivalent

Meeting the criteria will not automatically guarantee an offer.

To stand the best chance of being awarded one of these scholarships, please apply by the end of April 2019. However, we will still consider applications until the end of September 2019, or until all awards are allocated, whichever is the earliest.

If you would like to be considered for a Vice Chancellor’s Attainment Award please complete our online application form.

Administrative details and University’s right to amend terms of the scholarship

The Award will be paid in two equal instalments in January 2020 and April 2020 for those enrolling in September 2019.

The University reserves the right to amend or even cancel this scholarship should significant changes to the funding of higher education be introduced following the UK Government’s review of higher education funding, even if a student has already received an allowance for one or more academic years.

Conditions and continuing requirements

Please note that a final offer of a Vice-Chancellor’s Attainment Award will be subject to you:

  • Accepting St Mary’s University as your first choice institution;
  • Enrolling on to an undergraduate degree (or PGCE programme) in September 2019; and
  • If applicable, achieving the minimum eligibility grades when your results are released. 

You should also note that to continue receiving the scholarship award annually (maximum of three years for an undergraduate programme), you must obtain an average grade of 60% or above each year.  St Mary’s reserves the right to withdraw the scholarship award at any time should you behave in a manner that brings you, or St Mary’s  into disrepute; or you are subject to any academic or non-academic misconduct procedures; or you have outstanding monies owed to the University.
