OSOTF awards are allocated on the basis of academic excellence; however, financial need is the primary consideration for OSOTF awards. The award holder must be a full-time student for at least 14 weeks in any term during which they hold the award. Internal awards are automatically used to pay the student's outstanding fees. Preference in funding decisions will be given to students in year 1-2 of their MSc or year 1-4 of their PhD and year 5 for transfers. Students beyond these years will be considered under exceptional circumstances. The length of support from OSOTF awards is for up to one year and is not renewable, however new application may be made for subsequent competitions.
