Regulated Qualifications Framework

Please note that the final contents of these pages will be updated following consideration of the latest Student Awards Amendment Regulations 2018 by Tynwald on 19 June.

In the meantime, because of the relatively limited changes proposed for the 2018 Regulations these pages can still used for general guidance purposes, although applicants should note that in some cases eligibility and the levels of financial assistance provided by the Department under the new Regulations may be subject to change.

Year 1 applications are NOW OPEN for those students hoping to go to University in September/ October 2018 – apply using our new Student Awards Online (Alpha) Service.

Other continuing students will be contacted directly and should not apply until invited to do so.

A student is not eligible for support if they have previously commenced a course at the same or a higher level.
