Sickness and Stipends


If you are a post graduate student in receipt of a stipend, you will continue to receive this provided:

you are fully enrolled

you are temporarily withdrawn however you are entitled to receive a stipend e.g. you are receiving sick pay or maternity/paternity/adoption pay

We expect to process the stipend for August 2021 towards the end of July 2021.
