The university recommends that application for admission to study at Nottingham should be received at least six weeks before the scholarship closing date to allow time for our Admissions office to process the application and confirm your offer, before you can apply for the scholarship. Any application for admission to study submitted later than six weeks before the scholarship closing date is not guaranteed to be processed in time.
Please note that you will not be able to apply for a scholarship without an offer to study. You will be required to enter your undergraduate UCAS id before you can proceed with your scholarship application. The system then checks this id to see if you have an offer for the 17/18 academic year. If you do not have an offer then you will not be able to apply.
