Path to Success Scholarship

The University of West London is offering the Path to Success scholarship to all new Home/EU entrants starting in September 2017 or January 2018 on a four-year degree with a foundation year.

The scholarship consists of a £4,000 award payable over two academic years, as four £1,000 instalments.

Eligibility

All new Home/EU entrants starting in September 2017 or January 2018 on a four-year degree with a foundation year are automatically eligible and need not apply.

The award criteria are based on academic engagement and progression:

  • Attendance – this is based on SAM (Student Attendance Monitoring) data and personal tutor reports
  • Submission to assessment – students are expected to submit to assessment where appropriate
  • Progression to the next course year of study, and satisfactory academic engagement in the second year of study, for the second half of the award

Please note, EU and/or Home students not receiving maintenance support through Student Finance England will need to download the Bank Details form (doc, 71kb), fill it in and submit it to the Student Services Scholarship team (scholarships@uwl.ac.uk) no later than 11 November.

Payment of award

In the first year, students will receive the first £1,000 instalment in week 11 of the first semester of their course, and the second £1,000 instalment will be paid in week three of the second semester.

In the second year, the third instalment of £1,000 will be payable in week 11 of the first semester, and the final £1,000 instalment will be paid in week three of the second semester.

All four of the payments are subject to the student's attendance, submission to assessment and confirmation from their personal tutor.*

Additional financial aid

Students who successfully benefit from the Path to Success scholarship (i.e. receive the full £4,000 by their second year of study) can also apply for the UWL Full time Undergraduate Bursary Scheme on the condition that they meet the relevant criteria. The combination of the scholarship and bursary could potentially provide a total of £7,000 for the full duration of the student’s course.

 

*Students who change course from year 1 to year 2 are still eligible for the final two instalments.
