Congratulations on obtaining an offer of funding to support your studies in the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick. Please read the terms and conditions of our offer carefully before accepting our offer.
We very much hope you choose to accept your offer.
1.1 - Recipients of a scholarship from the School of Engineering must abide at all times with the University rules and regulations, as set out in the University Calendar, available online at http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/gov/calendar/.
1.2 - The offer of the award is made on the understanding that applicants are currently enrolled or will be enrolled with the University as specified in their offer for admission, and will then subsequently re-enrol annually. If an applicant has been made a conditional offer for doctoral study and has conditions still outstanding at the time of enrolment, then enrolment will be provisional until the conditions needed for full enrolment have been met. Provisional enrolment will enable the student to receive the award. However, if the conditions of admission are not satisfied within the first term of study the student will be liable to repay the amount awarded in full, on-demand and without deduction. Acceptance of the terms and conditions of this award shall be taken as acceptance of the student’s liability to repay in such circumstances.
1.3 - Accommodation fees are not directly covered by this award.
1.4 - If you are in receipt of a fee award, the award value will be paid directly to the Student Finance Team on your behalf. The full academic fee rate is stated in your offer letter.
1.5 - If you are in receipt of a maintenance award, payments will be made on a monthly basis unless otherwise stated. The first payment will be made on the first day of the month in which the student is due to start their course or three to four days following enrolment, whichever is later. Payments will only commence once the enrolment process is complete and your student record contains your UK bank details. Note: Your award letter will state explicitly if a maintenance award is included.
1.5a - Maintenance payments will only be made from the University to a student’s UK bank account.
1.6 - Requests for temporary withdrawal will only be considered on the grounds set out in University Regulation 36. Requests for temporary withdrawal should be made in accordance with normal procedure and the payment of the award is normally suspended during the award holder's period of temporary withdrawal. The exception is in the case of requests for temporary withdrawal for maternity leave, for which, if approved, the University will pay maintenance in line with statutory maternity provision.
1.7 - Should an award-holder wish to withdraw permanently, he/she must notify their department immediately in writing. Any maintenance and fee awards payable will be terminated at the date of withdrawal. Any payments made to an award-holder to cover a period of study after the date of permanent withdrawal will need to be repaid.
1.8 - This award is not transferrable and must be activated within one calendar month of the start date stated on the award.
FAQ: I have been awarded a tuition fee bursary or scholarship but this isn’t reflected on my Student Records Online account. What should I do?
If you have received confirmation from your academic department or the University that you have been awarded a bursary or scholarship then there is no need to worry.
Bursary information needs to be added to students’ accounts manually and therefore, due to the large number of bursaries the University administers, may not be reflected on your student account at the point you are asked to enrol.
If you have any queries relating to a Warwick administered bursary or scholarship please contact your academic department in the first instance. If they are able to confirm that the information has been sent to the Postgraduate Scholarships team then your bursary will be reflected on your student account in due course.
