  • Applicants who choose DMU as their insurance choice, and then later make DMU their firm choice, will not be eligible.

  • Applicants who apply through clearing or overseas applicants are not eligible.

  • The scholarship is available to students beginning their studies in both the September and March intake on the above mentioned nursing programmes and academic years.

  • This scholarship is not available to students who have studied an Access course.
  • To qualify for the scholarship, you must be accepted onto your course of interest and achieve a minimum of 128 UCAS points from a minimum of 2 A-Levels (or equivalent) upon entry to year 1, hold 5 GCSEs with a minimum of 3 Bs to include Maths, English and Science and meet all non-academic requirements for the programme and scholarship.

  • In addition applications must also satisfy any non-academic requirements for admission onto the programme, including Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and occupational health self-declaration.

  • In each year of study, an assessment of Personal Reflection will be recorded and scored using the School of Nursing and Midwifery Contextualised Grade Descriptors. Students need to have the ability to write to a high standard (Level 4), and will need to include a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a nurse, specific to their field of practice, and how they have/will continue to enhance the programme and profession. In your application for a second and third year scholarship, evidence of value added activities during the year to demonstrate a commitment to supporting the programme and the nursing profession (e.g. such as being a student rep, or participating in the Square Mile initiative) needs to be clear in your personal reflection. Students must achieve 70 per cent on this criterion.

  • Recipients must all meet the requirements of the scholarship in each year of study to continue to qualify to receive the scholarship in years 2 & 3, which includes achieving a minimum of 70 per cent across all academic aspects of the programme.

  • Scholarships are only available to students paying their own fees (including those in receipt of Student Loans Company Funding).

  • The scholarship is valid only for entry into the 2018/19 academic session. Awards cannot be deferred with an application or enrolment later than March 2019.

  • Students in receipt of the scholarship will not be eligible for any other scholarships or awards during their undergraduate studies, with the exception of the Employability Fund, The DMU Difference, Global High Flyers, Care Leavers Bursary and the Estranged Student Bursary

  • No cash alternatives will be offered and the sponsorship cannot be transferred to any other course at DMU or to a nominated recipient.

  • Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the university.

  • Please note that we may not be able to offer this in the future if the University’s circumstances change. The type of circumstance which could mean we need to stop this funding include without limitation: if events outside of our reasonable control happen;  if our business operations change; if there is a change of control of the university; if the University’s financial situation changes; or if its legal status changes. We consider it unlikely that these circumstances could occur and mean we cease providing this support but please don’t make a decision to attend this course based on the availability of the fund for your course.

  • We also reserve the right to cancel any sponsorship which has been claimed fraudulently and to apply the full tuition fee.

  • Where a student terminates or interrupts their studies, prior to the completion of their course, both the tuition fees and the sponsorship will be pro-rated, based on the student’s last date of attendance.

  • Applicants must have no outstanding debt to the university prior to receiving each annual award.
  • As part of the admissions process you will be notified of your eligibility of the scholarship. The administration of the scholarship will happen at point of enrolment.  Scholarship payments will be split into three equal instalments. For the September intake payments will be made in mid-November 2018, mid-Feb 2019 and early May 2019. Payment dates for the March 2019 intake and onwards are to be confirmed.

  • Home student will be paid via the Student Loan Company (SLC)/ Student Finance England (SFE). EU students and non SLC/SFE funded student will be paid via BACS transfer from the University. EU and non-SLC/SFE student will be contacted in regards to payment once enrolled.

Any bursary or scholarship payment made by DMU/ Student Loans Company (SLC) after a student has interrupted their studies or withdrawn from the university will normally be recovered from the student.
  • These terms and conditions may be subject to change with regard to the criteria for award so the scholarship will be linked to grade achieved.

  • Any bursary or scholarship payment made by DMU in error OR paid as a result of false information submitted will normally be recovered from the student.

  • lf a payment is not received, it is the responsibility of the student to contact the Student Finance and Welfare team at DMU ASAP, so that the non-payment can be investigated. Please note: do NOT leave any queries about non-payment until after the end of each academic year as it may take time to investigate and resolve your query.

  • Your SLC/SFE record must be in a position for the scholarship allocation to be made and then paid. If your SLC/SFE record is not in a position for allocation and/or payment to be made, your payment will be delayed or not made at all. This means that the following criteria must have been met:
    1. Your completed SLC/SFE funding application must have been assessed and finalised by SLC/SFE
    2. You must have signed and returned your Student Declaration Form to the SLC
    3. Your SLC/SFE record must be available to DMU. Therefore you must have given SFE permission for your information to be shared with the university. Permission/ consent from you can be given by calling SFE on 0300 100 0621
    4. The data held on your SFE record must meet the award eligibility criteria (i.e. correct fee amount, commencing year of study, etc.).
