Dr Mike Daniel Research Degree Scholarship – £500

The deadline for applications for the Mike Daniel Research Degree Scholarship is the 15th May 2015. Find out how you can apply.

Dr Mike Daniel was Pro Rector (Academic Quality) from 1993​-2002 and played a major role in guiding the institution towards taught degree awarding powers and university college designation. At his untimely death in 2002 he was preparing the case for full university designation, friends and colleagues raised sufficient funds to create a research degree scholarship to be named after him.
