To be eligible for consideration, candidates must:

  • Have applied to study (and subsequently enrol) on a full-time undergraduate course with a tuition fee of £6000 p.a. or more.
  • Have firmly accepted a conditional or unconditional offer of a place at the University of Wolverhampton by July 2018; and


  • Be a person with deafness/hearing loss or other hearing impairment and eligible for support via the Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) which has been declared to the University prior to enrolment.  (If necessary, this criterion may be reviewed in the light of the detailed Government changes to DSA eligibility expected to be developed shortly).
