Please note that an offer of an award from our funds does not guarantee or confirm your place on your chosen course. You can apply to the college support fund for an award prior to you accepting a place on your chosen course, enabling you to make an informed decision on whether or not to accept your place. All awards from the college support fund are dependent on you enrolling on your chosen course.
