Deferral and transferral

University of Leicester scholarships are awarded for the year that you start at the University, not the year that you apply. The information on this website refers to 2016 year of entry only and may be subject to change.

Deferring from 2015 to 2016

If you apply in 2015 for deferred entry in 2016 you will fall under the 2016 funding arrangements (when those are confirmed).

Deferring from 2016 to 2017

If you apply in 2016 for deferred entry in 2017 you will fall under the 2017 funding arrangements (when those are confirmed).

Transferring between courses

Transferring within the University of Leicester

If you change your degree programme within the first few weeks of University you will still be potentially eligible for the Chancellor’s Scholarship and/or the University of Leicester Scholarship. If you choose to restart your degree the following year, you'll be re-considered against the scholarship criteria for that year, rather than the year current one.

Transferring to Leicester from another University

If you are transferring from another university, you will potentially still be eligible for the Chancellor’s Scholarship and/or the University of Leicester Scholarship, provided that you transfer in the first or second year of your course.
