Academic achievement awards celebrate success by rewarding undergraduate students with the highest average percentage mark (APM) at Level 4 or Level 5 (equivalent to Years 1 and 2 of a full-time degree) within each academic department.

If you are a registered student on an undergraduate degree, integrated Masters degree or foundation degree, you may be eligible for an academic achievement award.

Scholarship amount

Academic achievement awards are worth up to £1,000, paid in one instalment. If more than one student in an academic department attain the same highest average percentage mark for their year group, the £1,000 payment will be divided equally between all qualifying recipients.
