Former BMet students benefit from university bursary
The students completed A Level and practical vocational programmes of study and were nominated by their tutors to receive £2,000 to contribute towards their higher education studies.
The University of Wolverhampton also awarded travel bursaries worth £500 to 60 of the colleges’ students.
Head of Careers and Employment at BMet, Jenny North said: “This is a pilot sponsorship programme that recognises our strong partnership links with the university and BMet’s ability to equip our students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to excel in their studies. The students receiving this bursary are now university ready and will use their funds for study aids, travel costs and other opportunities relating to their academic progress.”
Head of Access and Outreach at the University of Wolverhampton, Ian Hart, said: “This is a scholarship that rewards students who have worked incredibly hard to realise their potential and have fully committed to their college course.
“We want to reward those students who have shown dedication and overcome any challenges to achieve success.
“All of the awardees will be starting their courses with the University of Wolverhampton in September. The University really does feel privileged to be able to welcome such talented and committed individuals to begin their journey into higher education with us.”
The bursary was awarded to students who met specific criteria. This related to them achieving beyond their expectations through hard work and dedication to their studies. Students managing a physical, social or learning disability during their time at the college were also nominated for a bursary.
