  • Scholarships are not transferable and not deferrable. They are valid only for use by scholarship winners in the academic year for which the scholarship has been awarded. Applicants who choose to defer entry will be considered for available scholarships available in the year of entry. Acceptance of a scholarship before deferral does not guarantee a scholarship offer during the year of entry.
  • There is no cash alternative to be offered if a place on the programme is not taken up.
  • Applicants awarded a Durham University Business School Scholarship, will not be eligible for any other Durham University awards or discounts such as alumni discounts.

Scholarship Acceptance

To secure the scholarship award applicants must confirm acceptance of the award by the date stated on the scholarship offer email. Failure to confirm acceptance of the scholarship by this date may result in the applicant’s right to the scholarship being removed and the scholarship being awarded to another applicant.

Payments

The scholarship award will be deducted from your last tuition fee payment. However, if the scholarship award exceeds the amount owed in this payment period, the remainder will be deducted from your penultimate tuition fee payment.

If you choose to withdraw from the programme before completion you will be responsible for the full cost of the programme up to the point of withdrawal and your scholarship will no longer be valid.
