You will not need to make an application for the standard Chamberlain Award. However, in order for us to be able to assess you based on your household income, you will need to apply for a means-tested maintenance loan with the Student Loans Company. Please note, you do not need to take out the loan, but you must go through the loan application process, and be reported to us as being eligible for maintenance support by the 31 May deadline, in order for the University to be able to assess you for the Chamberlain Award.
Provided you and your parents/guardians have not opted out of sharing your information on your Student Finance application, we will then assess you based on your household income. You will then be sent an email confirming that your entitlement notification letter is available to view online.
You will need to login to your student finance account to view your letter.
Please note, Student Finance England's secure sites start with 'https' and a small padlock icon appears at the bottom of the browser window. This padlock will confirm the certificate of the website and ensure you are not on a fraudulent site.
Awards are subject to annual and in-year reassessment; all awards will be finalised on 31 May for the previous year of academic study (e.g. 31 May 2020 for academic year 2019/20). If you have not been means tested by the SLC and had your eligibility for maintenance support confirmed to us by them before 31 May you will not be eligible for an award. Please see the notification section, below, for further details.
