The CPW Placement Bursary

Thanks to the generosity of CPW, we are pleased to have established the CPW Placement Bursary, to support talented 2nd year undergraduate students due to start their placement year on one of our Architecture, Design and Built Environment courses.

The scholarship is worth £750 and will be paid as a lump sum at the start of the placement year.

We will award the bursary to the applicant who most closely meets or exceeds the criteria for the award. The decision is made by an awarding committee and all decisions of that awarding committee are final.

Applications for September 2022 entry have now closed. We will update the application details for 2023 entry in the new year.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible to apply applicants must:

  5. Applications received after 16:00 GMT (4pm) on the deadline date will not be considered.
  6. This application form is for eligible undergraduate courses only. Please do not use this form to apply for postgraduate scholarships or research funding.
  7. If you have been made an offer of a place to study on an eligible sandwich course, eight scholarships of £750 are available.
  8. The scholarship will be awarded as a cash bursary, which will be paid by the end of October at the start of the placement year.
  9. The scholarship is not transferable and will not be awarded if you choose to withdraw from or defer your placement year, or if you choose to transfer to a different course at NTU. Students may re-apply for the scholarship should it still be available.
  10. Applicants will be informed whether they have (or have not) been awarded a scholarship (and of the value of the scholarship award they have been awarded) within four weeks of the application deadline dates.
  11. The scholarship will be awarded when an applicant accepts their scholarship offer. If you do not formally accept the scholarship within the deadline when requested, then NTU reserves the right to withdraw the scholarship and award to another candidate.
  12. Scholarships are competitive, and selection is based on the information provided on the scholarship application form.

In the event of failure by a student to notify NTU promptly of any such changes, NTU will be entitled to recover any payments made or adjust (as appropriate) the scholarship amount.
  17. If a student makes a false or materially incorrect declaration that resulted in NTU awarding them the scholarship, then the scholarship will be cancelled, and no payments will be made. Depending on circumstance, NTU may attempt to recover some or all of any payments already made.
  18. If NTU makes a payment which was not expected or where the amount is incorrect, the student must let NTU know as soon as they are aware that this has happened. NTU will be entitled to recover any payments made in error.
  19. NTU’s decision in all matters relating to the scholarship is final.
