We're all about great skills! If you take our GREat skills programme before you start the university, you could earn a scholarship worth £2,000.

We want to reward local students who prepare well for university by developing their independent learning and study skills before they start with us.

If you participate in our academic skills programme before you join the university, you may be eligible for a substantial cash scholarship of £2,000.

This is paid to you in three instalments during your first year.
