Additional eligibility criteria

Participants who receive scholarship funding for a reformed NPQ (post November 2021) and who then subsequently withdraw from, or fail, their programme will not be eligible for scholarship funding for the same NPQ in the future. If a participant is unable to continue with their NPQ, providers are expected to support them to defer their programme and restart at a later date if appropriate.

Participants who received scholarship funding for a legacy NPQ (prior to November 2021) and who withdraw from their programme could be eligible for scholarship funding for the new reformed NPQs.

You can still undertake an NPQ if you are not eligible for scholarship funding.
