All students are liable for the Student Centre Levy and for the tuition fees not covered by the scholarship.

For Masters applicants, scholarships are tenable for one year and are non-renewable.

All students in receipt of a Scholarship are given the opportunity to develop the practical application of their academic skills through ongoing training and experience in undergraduate tutorial teaching, assessment and pedagogical development. This process is a core component of this scholarship programme and it also ensures that our undergraduate students benefit from the expertise and knowledge of high performing graduate students. As with the formal taught component of the student's graduate programme, this is a required element. 

For Masters students, it will amount to over 4 hours per week during each of the two 12-week teaching semesters, including up to 21 hours per semester of mentored undergraduate teaching.
