When will I know if I have been awarded a scholarship?

Students will be informed of the outcome of their application via the MySIS portal by the end of the first semester.  If your application is shortlisted and forwarded for a final decision by an external Trust or Foundation which is providing the funding for a scholarship, you will be informed of this. In these cases, we expect to have a decision from the Trust or Foundation during the second semester and you will be informed as soon as we hear from them.
