The University currently offers two 'special circumstances scholarships' equivalent to Research Training Program Scholarships that are available to students who do not meet the normal scholarship criteria and whose prior academic performance may have been seriously disadvantaged as a result of exceptional circumstances such as a disability, sickness or heavy care duties.
