If you are a continuing student on the BA Social Work programme and have not been successful in obtaining the Social Work bursary, you may be eligible for the Chamberlain Award. Please contact the Funding, Graduation & Awards team and attach a copy of your correspondence from either the School of Social Policy or the NHS confirming your ineligibility.
The Chamberlain Award will be subject to annual and in-year reassessment to determine eligibility. We strongly recommend reading the Terms and Conditions for the Chamberlain Award.
