RAU Awards

All new undergraduate students will be entitled to a £100 voucher towards the value of a bicycle and accessories, books or computer equipment. We also offer vouchers from a total fund of £65,000 per annum to students so they can participate on skills-based courses at our Rural Skills Centre and Food Training Kitchen to enhance their employability at the end of their programme. Individual vouchers are valued at up to £200 each and all new undergraduate students are entitled to one voucher each. Any remaining vouchers will be allocated on a first come first served basis later in the year.
