Applicable Programmes

The Dean of Humanities, Arts & Social Science’s Excellence Scholarship applies to the following programmes:

 

The scholarship is not available to students in the first year of a degree programme with integrated foundation. However, Regent’s students enrolled on a degree programme with integrated foundation are eligible to apply for the Vice Chancellor’s Excellence Scholarship once they have commenced their foundation-level studies. If successful, the scholarship would then apply to their degree-level studies.

The scholarship is not available to transfer students or students who join a degree programme with advanced standing.

Scholarships and bursaries are limited to one award per student, with the highest value scholarship or bursary applying in such cases where one student is eligible to receive more than one award.
