This article will explain about the EU Referral Award for Postgraduate Study (EURAPS).

This scheme is for current or former University of Portsmouth students who refer EU (excluding UK) students for a postgraduate degree. We will reward you with £200 if their application results in a registration.

How does the scheme work?

Download and complete the EU Referral Award for Postgraduate Study (EURAPS) form below. Ensure that the EURAPS Form is attached to the online application. Please select EURAPS from the agent drop-down menu and attach a copy of the completed EURAPS Form.

Please note: we cannot link the application to you after we have received the application and it has been input into the University's Admissions System.

When submitting your application online please attach a copy of the EURAPS Form uploading your supporting documents. The International Office will then process it.

Once applied

If your friend's application is successful and they register at the University in September, you will need to contact us from November to process your referral award payment. Your payment will be made in January, assuming that your friend is still registered with the University.

Only ONE referral award can be given per registration. If an applicant is referred by more than one alumnus or contracted representative of the University, the first referral received will be the one rewarded if the applicant registers.

I am not an EU student but I would like to refer an EU applicant - can I take part in the scheme?

Yes you can. This scheme is open to UK, EU and International students/alumni who refer an EU applicant for postgraduate study.

I am an Erasmus/Exchange student who would like to refer an EU applicant - can I take part in this scheme?

Yes you can. Both current and former Erasmus/Exchange students are eligible to receive this award.

I would like to refer an EU applicant for a bachelor degree - will I still get the award?

No, this award is for the referral of postgraduate students only.

What type of applicants can I claim the award for?

You can only claim the award for:

  • Those applying for postgraduate programmes (Masters, PgD, PhD) at the University of Portsmouth
  • 'EU' status applicants (applicants classified as UK home students or exchange students are not eligible.  If you are referring an International applicant, you may be eligible for the International Alumni Referral Award.
  • Newly recruited applicants (students who have previously studied at the University of Portsmouth, or on any franchised or distance learning courses overseas, or at an institution that has an articulation agreement with the University of Portsmouth are not eligible).
