Prizes, bursaries and other funding

Entering for prizes and awards is not only about the financial benefits but also about the boost that these give to your portfolios and future prospects. Many Deaneries operate a system of ranking short-listed candidates for interview according to a scoring system and additional points have been given to students with awards and prizes. We would encourage you to apply for these which we hope will be useful to you in the furtherance of your careers.

The Student Council asked whether we could provide any support for students applying for such prizes. We certainly can give some mentorship without compromising the work as being your own. If you'd like such support, please email Kirsty Hartley ([email protected]).
