Student grants

The Department of Education Sport and Culture provides financial support for students undertaking further or higher education, subject to them meeting certain eligibility criteria laid out in the Regulations approved by Tynwald. 

This site provides a general outline of the funding available for students commencing the first year of their course in September or October 2018 and for continuing students. This information is provided for guidance only as each applicant must be assessed on individual circumstances based on the details provided in their application and the Student Awards Regulations. Applicants are required to read the available guidance before making an application for an Award. 

Particular attention should be given to the sections explaining the contribution you will need to make towards your tuition fees and the availability of loans to cover this contribution.

Student Awards Messages Bulletin – latest news & information
Results Day

We hope that you get the results you want and that Thursday 16th August is a celebratory day for you but please don’t forget to send us your results and UCAS AS12 confirmation letter as these are important for us to be able to process your application. Any delays will have a knock-on impact on your confirmation of award letter.

Results (and continuing studies confirmation for Year 2/3 students) should be sent in photograph or scanned formats to SAresults@gov.im with your name in the email title. If you have already sent your results/continuing studies confirmation in then you DO NOT need to send them again. Remember we will also need to see your Unconditional Offer Letter if you haven’t already sent that in too.

Students seeking further advice or information should visit our website in the first instance as many queries can be answered from the guidance and downloadable documents available. 

Alternatively for more detailed queries, or in the event of any problems, please contact the Student Awards Team for assistance by email at studentgrants@doe.gov.im however please note that we are dealing with queries in order of receipt.  This is a very busy time for the Student Awards Team so please do not submit repeat queries.
