If you do not provide us with the required information for application of the Scholarship when prompted, or if you provide us with incomplete or incorrect information, we will not be able to process your Scholarship application further. 

We will aim to process all requests for the Scholarship in a timely manner, once you have provided the relevant information regarding the scholarship and provided they meet our Eligibility Criteria. 

Provided we are satisfied that you meet our Eligibility Criteria, and you are chosen by the panel as the preferred recipient, you must then choose UEA as your firm choice (not insurance) via UCAS in order to receive the scholarship. 

Each scholarship’s availability is dependent on the generosity of the donor and on available funds. As such, we may withdraw the availability of Scholarships at any time up until a formal scholarship offer is made to a recipient. 

We reserve the right to adjust scholarship eligibility criteria up until the application deadline, provided the change(s) do not make applications already submitted ineligible or disadvantage them in any way. 

If no candidate is judged to be of sufficient merit, Scholarships will not be awarded. 

It is your responsibility to inform the Development Office of any other scholarship or tuition fee reduction which you are offered by UEA, as it is not possible to hold some UEA scholarships with a Donor-Funded Scholarship. Where both a Donor-Fund Scholarship has been offered by the Development Office and a UEA Scholarship has been offered by the Admissions Office or the relevant School, the combined amount of funding available will not exceed £10,000. 

No person will be awarded the same Donor-Funded Scholarship more than once. 

The scholarship is payable after you have completed the University’s registration process. 

The values of undergraduate Donor-Funded Scholarships are advertised on our website and the final amount awarded confirmed in writing at point of scholarship offer. 

It is your responsibility to ensure that any change in bank account details is advised to the University. 

If you plan to change your course, intercalate or withdraw from your course, you are expected to inform both the University and the Development Office as soon as possible as this could affect your eligibility for the scholarship. 

Part-time students should understand that any support given will be proportional to tuition fees charged (where applicable) and will be spread pro-rata throughout the duration of the course. 

For students enrolled on a course including a year in industry or year abroad etc., the scholarship will be given for the three years of study during which the student is based at UEA. No funding will be given for the year away from UEA.

General terms and conditions

 

Please also refer to the University's General Regulations for Students.

If successful, you will be registered and enrolled with us as a full-time or part-time postgraduate student for a credit-bearing postgraduate programme under our Degree Regulations set out in the University Calendar. You must abide by our Charter, Statutes, Ordinances, Regulations and Policies in force.

We may make changes to these Terms from time to time and the version that is applicable to you will be those that were in force at the date of your application.     

We have complete discretion to decide how long we will make any Scholarship scheme available for, for what period of time the Scholarship scheme will operate and may withdraw the Scholarship scheme at any time and without further notice.

Unless otherwise stated, these scholarships are tuition fee discounts which will be directly applied to your student account. No alternative/equivalent monetary payment will be made. 

The maximum period that an annual Scholarship will be applied to your account for a specific postgraduate programme is three years (36 months) for full-time students or six years (72 months) for part-time students.

If you change your mode of study, the Fees Officer will amend your account as set out in these Terms.

If you wish to decline a scholarship offer from us prior to registering at the University please email admissions@uea.ac.uk. We will then withdraw our scholarship offer and confirm this in writing. Any offer of a place on one of our courses would not be affected.   

Please note that scholarship awards cannot be deferred to a subsequent year. If you do defer your entry to our course then any scholarship award will be removed. You can apply for the same or other scholarships the following year, but any award cannot be guaranteed.

Please note that until a Scholarship is applied to your student account in accordance with these

Terms, you remain liable to pay your full tuition and other fees to us in accordance with our General Regulations on Fees, Charges and Expenses and must be able to meet all of your costs without relying on the Discount. 

Removing scholarships

 

We may remove the scholarship placed on your account immediately if:

  • You are expelled, suspended or excluded from the whole or part of the University or your programme of study for academic failure; or
  • We are of the reasonable opinion that you have made any misrepresentation (whether negligently or intentionally) to us either in respect of applying for the Scholarship or during the course of and in connection with your studies at the University; or
  • We are of the reasonable opinion that you have acted fraudulently or dishonestly in connection with securing your Scholarship or place at the University.
  • In addition to requiring repayment, we may also take such action against you as is permitted under our Student Disciplinary Procedures or Fitness to Study Policy which are set out and available from the University Calendar. In the event of a period  of interruption to your studies, including maternity or paternity leave, any payments will be suspended until you return and progress to the next stage of your course. 

Donor-funded scholarships may be withdrawn if you fail to: 

  • Attend the required events (both the Scholars’ Welcome Reception and  Scholarships Reception events) or fail to provide the Development Office with communications for your donor when requested. 
  • Demonstrate satisfactory commitment to, or progression within, your studies. Donor-Funded scholars are expected to maintain strong attendance records and perform at strong academic standard.  
  • Remain in good financial standing with the University. Scholarship instalments may not be paid if you have overdue tuition or accommodation charges.  
  • Inform the Development Office that you are receiving another scholarship or other form of funding.  

Repaying the scholarship  

 

In the event that your scholarship is removed, you will be liable to pay us your full tuition fees and therefore reimburse us the monetary amount equating to your scholarship, immediately on demand.

If we have made an error in calculating your scholarship and as a result you have received an additional discount to which you were not entitled, we may request that you repay us the amount overpaid and you will be liable to repay it to us within 30 days of our demand.

In addition to any other rights we may have at law to take action against you for recovery or repayment, the amount so outstanding will be treated by us as a sum due to us in accordance with our General Regulations on Fees and Charges.

Variation of the scholarship

 

We will unilaterally reconcile your student account and vary the amount of the Scholarship applied to your account, so that the Scholarship you actually receive never equates to more than the stated discount amount by you for that academic year if we receive information suggesting that your anticipated tuition fee (on which the Scholarship was initially calculated) for that academic year is expected to change or has changed, for reasons including but not limited to:

  • where you receive a refund in accordance with our then existing Postgraduate Tuition Fees Refund Policy
  • a change in your mode of study
  • where you cease to be registered with us for any reason, including if you have withdrawn from your studies or your studies have been terminated earlier than the expected completion date
  • where you change your programme of study
  • where you take a period of intercalation from your programme of study
  • you cease to meet the Eligibility Criteria and from that date; or
  • You fail to progress satisfactorily on your programme of study and from a date we reasonably determine.

In any of these situations and depending on your facts, you may be liable to make additional payments to us for your tuition fees or the actual monetary value of the Discount you receive from us may increase.

Agreement to participate in UEA marketing and promotion

 

You will be required to make yourself available, on reasonable notice, for any publicity and marketing campaigns we want to run in connection with the Scholarship scheme. This may include, but not be limited to, public appearances, speeches, blogging and/tweeting, interviews or photographs and providing student testimonials which can be used in publicity material.

You must also be prepared to send a testimonial one year after graduation, outlining your current position and how your studies at UEA have helped towards your career goals. Students may also be asked to assist at UEA Open Days where their academic programme allows, or to make themselves contactable by a small number of prospective students from their home country, to answer simple questions about UEA and/or their course of study.

For Donor-Funded scholarships you must attend two mandatory events during your first year of receiving the scholarship. The Scholars Welcome Reception event will be held in October/November and the Scholarships Reception will be held in the Spring. You may also be required to meet your donor at a separate, mutually convenient time.

For Donor-Funded Scholarships you must also consent to completing tasks set by the Development Office, including but not limited to: completing a donor thank-you letter, providing annual updates and sending a graduation photo, in a timely manner. You are expected to inform the Development Office of any contact with the donor other than that arranged by the University.

How we may use your personal information

 

We will use the personal information you provide to us to process your enrolment and administer the Scholarship scheme. We will retain all documents we receive in connection with the Scholarship scheme along with your other student records in accordance with our Data Protection Policy.

Where external donors are involved in the scholarship awarding process, you must consent to sharing all details included on your scholarship application with the donor. Failure to do so may result in your application being withdrawn. In signing the Scholarship Agreement, you also consent to the Development Office sharing your name, course of study and UEA email address with the donor.

Once you are enrolled at UEA, the University will contact you using your University student email account. It is your responsibility to check this account regularly for important information regarding payment of your Scholarship, and any other requests relating to the Scholarships scheme.

The Process

If you meet the Eligibility Criteria and would like to be considered for a Scholarship, you must complete the scholarship application form by the deadline given (if it is stated that a scholarship application is required). In cases where the website states that a scholarship application is not required, you will only be considered for the scholarship if you have submitted your UEA postgraduate study application by the deadline specified on the website.

If we are of the reasonable view that you do not meet our Eligibility Criteria and you wish to appeal we will ask you to provide us with such proof as we deem necessary to make a new assessment. You must supply us with the requested evidence as soon as reasonably possible. 

Each scholarship’s availability is dependent on the generosity of the donor and on available funds. As such, we may withdraw the availability of Scholarships at any time up until a formal scholarship offer is made to a recipient. 

We reserve the right to adjust scholarship eligibility criteria up until the application deadline, provided the change(s) do not make applications already submitted ineligible or disadvantage them in any way.   

The approximate values of postgraduate Donor-Funded Scholarships are advertised on our website and the final amount awarded confirmed in writing at point of scholarship offer.

 

Donor-funded scholarship selection and awarding

We aim to award all scholarships in a timely manner though we are unable to confirm the exact date on which a scholarship will be awarded. The timing of decisions may also vary between scholarships.  

The recipient(s) of each Donor-Funded Scholarship will be decided by an appointed Scholarship Panel. If no candidate is judged to be of sufficient merit by the Scholarship Selection Panel, Scholarships will not be awarded. No person will be awarded the same Donor-Funded Scholarship more than once.

Provided we are satisfied that you meet our Eligibility Criteria, and you are chosen by the Scholarship Panel as the preferred recipient, you will receive your scholarship offer via email. 

Receipt of your Scholarship is subject to your completion of the University registration process by the given deadline. Depending on the particulars of the Scholarship your award may either be deducted directly from your tuition fee charges by the University’s Finance Office or received as a maintenance grant payment direct to your bank account. This will be confirmed in your Scholarship Agreement. Where you are receiving your Scholarship as a maintenance grant this will be paid in nine monthly instalments from October – June each academic year or as confirmed in your Scholarship Agreement.  

It is your responsibility to ensure that any change in bank account details is advised to the University.   If you plan to change your course, intercalate or withdraw from your course, you are expected to inform both the University and the Development Office as soon as possible as this could affect your eligibility for the scholarship. 

Part-time students should understand that any support given will be proportional to tuition fees charged (where applicable) and will be spread pro-rata throughout the duration of the course.

MUSIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS 2020

Music Centre Award terms and conditions

 

Important and surprising terms and conditions:

  • You may not receive this Award if you already hold a Music Scholarship at UEA. 
  • For the 2020 Music Centre Awards, you must apply for your award before 11am on Tuesday 13 October 2020.

About these terms

We may make changes to these Terms from time to time and the version that is applicable to you will be those that were in force at the date we offered you your Award.

Eligibility criteria

You are eligible for Music Centre Award under these Terms if you meet all these criteria:

  1. You are enrolled as a student at the University at the time of payment.
     
  2. You demonstrate exceptional musical achievement and commitment. Your application must show evidence of a high standard of performance, your commitment to the music making you currently do and a well-researched outline of how you would use your skills to enrich the musical life of UEA.

Eligible Programmes

Music Centre Awards are for those students attending UEA and not an affiliated institution.

The Process

If you meet the Eligibility Criteria and would like to be considered for a Music Centre Award:

1.    You will need to submit an application form and provide details about your current and previous musical activities. We will ask you to outline your life so far as a musician, to tell us about some of your most exciting musical experiences and impressive musical achievements. We will ask you to think about how you might continue your musical activities at UEA (e.g. what from your research about the university has particularly caught your eye, what in your current musical life would you like to bring with you). We will also ask what you think are the special qualities that would make you a good award holder (e.g. your excellent leadership skills perhaps, or your ability to listen and find solutions to problems) and we will ask for examples of projects and work you have already done which show your special qualities. Please note that your commitment to contribute to musical life, and ability to be specific about how you intend to do this, will be extremely important in our decision making. The application deadline for the 2020 Music Centre Awards is 11am on Tuesday 13 October 2020.
 
2.    You will need to create a video of yourself making music, upload the video to YouTube and then send us the link. For the video, you will need to record three contrasting items of a maximum total length of ten minutes. Two of these should be pieces you feel show you at your best (they can be accompanied or unaccompanied), while the third should be a short unaccompanied study or folksong. 
 
The video does not have to be professionally made, but it will need to be high enough quality for us to clearly hear what you can do. If at all possible, please make your recording on equipment that does not compress the audio, so we can hear the details of your performances. We will be particularly listening and watching for: 
 
•    Musical shape, as well as technical accomplishment
•    Variety of dynamic and colour, which supports the musical flow
•    Clarity of performance and accuracy of intonation
•    Interaction and musical dialogue with accompanist (if applicable)
•    A sense that you are communicating something to us
 
Composers should submit performances of their works if possible, accompanied by scores.
 
Special conditions relating to recorded auditions:
 
•    We can only accept video recordings, not audio-only. The quality of both picture and sound must be sufficient for us to form an accurate impression of you as a performer. If quality is not sufficiently high, we may discontinue your application.
•    If it is possible, please record your performances especially for these auditions and ensure the pieces are those you have put on your application form. We want to see and hear you as you are now. If it is not possible to record for these auditions, please ensure you include titles, composer and the dates that any pre-existing recordings were made in the information you supply.  
•    If the pieces you want to perform require an accompanist, but it is not possible to perform with anyone else, please record yourself unaccompanied and for any extended rests in the music, simply count one or two bars before continuing.
•    Recordings must show you clearly throughout, as the performer. If we are unable to verify clearly that it is you performing, we may discontinue your application.
•    Recordings must be a single take for each piece, with no editing permitted.
•    You will need to upload your video to YouTube (as an unlisted item) and then send the link to musicevents@uea.ac.uk. The video submission deadline for the 2020 Music Centre Awards is 11am on Tuesday 13 October 2020.
 
3.    If your application is successful, you will be invited to a short web-based interview with the Director of Music and the Choir Director, where we will discuss your application, giving you a chance to expand on the information you put in your application form. We will ask you about your musical ambitions and personal qualities, and there will be the opportunity for you to ask us about anything to do with the musical life of the university. Interviews for the 2020 Music Centre Awards are scheduled to take place on Wednesday 28 (2.00-6.00pm) and Thursday 29 October 2020 (1.00-5.00pm)

You will be informed of the decision as soon as possible after the auditions (generally within a week). Decisions will be made based on musical achievements and plans to progress, alongside your ideas for contributing to musical life at UEA and the standard you demonstrate at audition.

Provided we are satisfied that you meet our Eligibility Criteria, we will pay your Music Centre Award to your nominated account in two equal instalments. These will take place in October/November and February of each year, subject to confirmation that you are fulfilling the requirements of the Award. It is your responsibility to ensure that you advise the University of any changes to your bank account details.

Part time students are welcome to apply. If the commitment to music making is to be reduced as a consequence, the amount of the Award may also be reduced.

You may not receive the Music Centre Award alongside a Music Scholarship at UEA.

The Music Centre Award Programme

We have complete discretion to decide how long we will make this Music Centre Award scheme available for, and may withdraw the Music Centre Award scheme at any time and without further notice.

We may cease offering the Music Centre Award scheme at any time and in our complete discretion.

A Music Centre Award will not automatically be paid to you even if you meet the Eligibility Criteria. You must apply for it via our website and be successful in the subsequent audition process.

Music Centre Awards are tenable for one year and you are welcome to reapply for subsequent years.

It is expected that a major part of the contribution made by the holder of an award will be to play or sing in University ensembles relevant to their voice or instrument and to be a leading member of those ensembles demonstrating commitment and encouraging others. We are keen to encourage musicians of all styles and traditions, therefore those for whom no ensemble is appropriate will be expected to devise and demonstrate ways of contributing to the musical life of the University, for example forming new ensembles, organising concerts, becoming involved in running existing ensembles as a committee member, being available to perform at University functions and to offer solo and chamber music.

Removal of a Music Centre Award

We may remove the Music Centre Award immediately in the event that:

  • You withdraw from your programme of study; or
  • You are expelled, suspended or excluded from the whole or part of the University or your programme of study for academic failure; or
  • We are of the reasonable opinion that you have made any misrepresentation (whether negligently or intentionally) to us either in respect of applying for the Music Centre Award or during the course of and in connection with your studies at the University; or
  • We are of the reasonable opinion that you have acted fraudulently or dishonestly in connection with securing your Music Centre Award or place at the University; or
  • You fail to make a substantial contribution to musical life at UEA. 

In the event of a period  of interruption to your studies, including maternity or paternity leave, any payments will be suspended until you return and progress to the next stage of your course.

Repayment of the Music Centre Award

In the event that your Music Centre Award is removed, you will be liable to pay us the monetary amount equating to your Music Centre Award, immediately on demand. If we have made an error in calculating your Music Centre Award and as a result you have received any funds to which you were not entitled, we may request that you repay us the amount overpaid and you will be liable to repay it to us within 30 days of our demand.

In addition to any other rights we may have at law to take action against you for recovery or repayment of the amount equating to the Music Centre Award, the amount so outstanding will be treated by us as a sum due to us and, in accordance with our General Regulations on Fees and Charges, may mean that you will not be awarded your degree until you have made payment to us as requested.

Marketing and Promotion

You may be required to make yourself available at reasonable notice for any publicity and marketing campaigns which we may want to run in connection with our scholarship and award schemes, which may include but not be limited to public appearances, speeches, photographs, blogging and/tweeting or interviews.

How We May Use Your Personal Information

We will use the personal information you provide to us to administer the Music Centre Award scheme. We will retain all documents we receive in connection with the Music Centre Award scheme along with your other student records in accordance with our Data Protection Policy.

Once you are enrolled at UEA, the University will contact you using your University student email account. It is your responsibility to check this account regularly for important information regarding payment of your Music Centre Award, and any other requests relating to the Music Centre Award scheme.
