Up to 50 scholarships of between £2,000 – £5,000 are available to new international students joining an undergraduate degree in the Faculty of Science in the 2020/2021 academic year.
Applicants will automatically be considered for a scholarship using the information contained in their application for admission. No separate scholarship application is necessary.
Scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis to candidates who demonstrate in their application for admission excellent academic performance (current and/ or previously gained) and any relevant extra-curricular or professional experience.
Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis. Awards may be allocated early in the application cycle and so making an early application for admission is advised.
In order to be considered for a Faculty of Science Undergraduate International Scholarship, candidates must:
