  •     Disabled students

Consideration will also be given to applicants who meet other underrepresented criteria in the following secondary categories:

  • Students from POLAR Q1 and Q2
  • Care experienced students
  • Estranged students
  • Gypsy, Roma, Traveller students
  • Refugees
  • Children from military families, veterans and partners of military personnel
