THE University of Winchester has announced that it will award a further £10,000 in scholarships.

The money will benefit students applying for entry in 2013 across a range of subjects.

Vice-chancellor, Professor Joy Carter, said: “We're delighted to be able to offer these additional subject scholarships for next year.

“Winchester believes in rewarding excellence and these awards will add to an already burgeoning range of support initiatives on offer to both existing and prospective students.”

The university said the subjects chosen reflect the importance of its Christian foundation.

Any students applying for degrees in theology, religion and ethics; modern liberal arts; and history, civilisations and beliefs, can be considered for one of ten awards worth £1,000 each.

The awards will be allocated to the first 10 students who meet the academic requirements and confirm their places to study at the university.
