The University is offering students the opportunity to develop language skills and obtain overseas experience by funding 100 students on the pilot Polylang Plus Scholarship Scheme.

This scheme is open to all current Level 4 students, however, in the event of there being a large number of applications, priority will be given to students who have no or limited overseas experience. We are looking for applicants who will be good ambassadors for the University, are motivated language learners and are interested in other cultures.
