About the award
The International Referral Programme is designed to reward graduates and current students for referring international students (including EU) to the University.

- For a referral to be successful, a referred student must successfully apply and enrol onto their chosen degree programme, be shown to be engaging well with their course (i.e. have a good level of attendance) and complete their first semester.
- Referred students must pay overseas-fees and therefore can not be a resident or national of the UK.
