College of Engineering, Design & Physical Sciences (CEDPS) Academic Excellence Scholarship Terms and Conditions 2019/20

1. Award details

The College of Engineering, Design & Physical Sciences (CEDPS) Academic Excellence Scholarship is a cash award available to full-time students commencing specified undergraduate courses in the College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences.

Value: £2,000 cash each year for a maximum of three years (or four years of a sandwich course). The scholarship will only be paid once for each eligible level of study, subject to normal progression criteria having been met (additional payments will not be made during a repeating year, regardless of the reason for repetition).

By accepting the scholarship the student is agreeing to become a Student Ambassador for the College.  As a student ambassador, students will be requested to participate occasionally in various activities to help promote the University and the College. Successful students will be contacted by their Department as and when required.

Data pertaining to bursary holders such as: progression rates, degree attainment, degree completion, and graduate outcomes may also be analysed in order to understand the effectiveness of bursaries and scholarships. This data may also be linked to other data already held by the University for the purpose of better understanding the impact of bursaries and scholarships on under-represented groups. To learn more about how the University uses data to support its commitment to delivering positive outcomes to students from under-represented groups please visit our webpage.

How many: unlimited

The Scholarship will be paid in three instalments in each year of a full time course up to a maximum of three years (or four years of a sandwich course) subject to meeting annual progression criteria.

This scholarship is not payable in the Masters year of an integrated Masters degree programme.

Successfully awarded students will be asked to supply relevant UK bank account details to support receipt of the cash payments by no later than the first day of Term 1. 

4.1 Payment dates

For cash scholarship awards, payment will be made as follows:

1st Payment - 13 December 2019

2nd Payment – 6 March 2020

3rd Payment - 12 June 2020

4.2 Conditions of Payment

  • Payment will only be made providing the student is fully enrolled at the University on an Undergraduate degree      programme of study at the time of the payment. In order to retain their College of Engineering, Design & Physical Sciences (CEDPS) Academic Excellence Scholarship in subsequent years, students must evidence their Academic Excellence by maintaining an upper Second Class (2:1) profile at the end of level 4 (year 1) and level 5 (year 2). This profile is based on that which must be achieved in order to obtain an Upper Second Class Honours Degree. A student must achieve the requirements set out in Senate Regulation 2 Appendix A. The grade achieved for the placement(s) will not have a bearing on the retention of the award.

N.B. Payments will be made directly to a UK bank account and therefore students are required to supply accurate bank account details via their eVision account within the requested time. Failure to provide current valid UK Bank account details will result in delayed payment.

Where a scholarship award spans more than one year, students will be written to in September to confirm ongoing eligibility to receive their scholarship award.

5.  Withdrawal of a Scholarship

5.1 Misleading information: The University reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship from anyone who is found to have misled the University about any aspect of their eligibility and to seek repayment of any monies already paid by appropriate means.

5.2 Changing course: If a student transfers to a course of study outside of the College of Engineering, Design & Physical Sciences the scholarship will be withdrawn.

5.3 Mode of attendance change: If a student changes their mode of attendance the scholarship will be withdrawn, i.e. if the change is from full time to part time.

5.4 Changing course and starting again at Level 4 (year 1): Students who commence their studies and subsequently make an alteration that involves starting again at level 4 will not be eligible for a new award against the new course. The existing scholarship will be placed on hold and reinstated once the student commences level 5 subject to meeting the annual scholarship progression criteria outlined in Section 4. If a student changes course within the College of Engineering, Design & Physical Sciences but remains at the same level of study, this will not have an impact on the award. Progression criteria as stipulated above will still apply.

5.5 Abeyance/Temporary Withdrawal: A student who takes a period of temporary withdrawal (abeyance) and who is in receipt of a scholarship award would cease to receive scholarship payments whilst temporarily withdrawn. Scholarship payments made prior to temporarily withdrawing will not generally be requested to be repaid and remaining payments will generally be paid once the student returns to complete that level of study.

5.6 Suspension of Study: Should a student be suspended for any reason, scholarship payments will  be withdrawn and consideration of reinstatement will be dependent on the disciplinary outcome.

5.7 Repeat/Extended Study: Repeat periods of study, and periods of temporary withdrawal that result in extended periods of study, are not supported by additional scholarship payments. Scholarship entitlement is for the maximum duration of each award and entitlement is not extended if overall course duration alters.

5.8 Withdrawal from Study: A student who withdraws from their programme prior to completion and who is in receipt of a scholarship award will not normally be requested to repay scholarship payments made up to the point of withdrawal. However, entitlement to all future scholarship payments cease immediately a student withdraws.
