  • your skills, talents and special interests that demonstrate your ability and ambition
  • your personal outlook, vision and passion that will help you to successfully deliver your future plans.
  • how you would represent the University as an ambassador

If you are applying for a postgraduate scholarship you must have achieved the equivalent of a 2:1 in your undergraduate degree.
