About these scholarships
In 2018 there are up to 50 merit-based scholarships available to new full-time international students on undergraduate or postgraduate taught degree courses.
Students progressing directly from the University of Brighton International College are also eligible to apply. The scholarship is worth a £5,000 reduction in tuition fees for the first year of your course only. Applications are open to students holding an offer to start their course in academic year 2018.
Applications for this scholarship are open between 1 November 2017 and 31 July 2018.
The criteria for awarding University of Brighton international scholarships are primarily merit-based. Merit does not necessarily have to mean academic merit but could also be interpreted to include outstanding performance in a variety of spheres.
The strongest candidates will be those demonstrating a mixture of academic merit (including English language ability) and other merit or outstanding achievement in a particular field of activity.
You will also need to show that you have sufficient funds to pay the remainder of the fees.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible to apply for a scholarship you must be a new, full-time, international fee-status student holding an offer for an undergraduate taught degree.
You must have applied for the course of your choice at the University of Brighton or Brighton and Sussex Medical School, and have been offered a place on that course for 2018 entry.
Students progressing directly from the University of Brighton International College are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
This scholarship is not open to students that are fully sponsored.
Existing international students are not eligible unless starting a new undergraduate programme.
How to apply
For the 2018 academic year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your University of Brighton student number or UCAS number in the subject line, and we will send you a scholarship application pack.
The application form can then be returned electronically to the same email address or sent by post to the address indicated on the scholarship application form. Please note application forms will not be sent to students who do not have an offer of a full-time place with us.
Deadline for application
There are four application deadlines throughout the year: 31 January, 31 March, 31 May, and 31 July 2018. Early applications will be processed in line with these dates and awards made in the month following each deadline, with final awards coming at the end of August. Decisions will be made by an awards committee coordinated by the International Office and Academic Services, and decisions about scholarship awards will be communicated to applicants approximately two weeks after those dates.
You are advised to apply as early as possible after you have received our offer, as the number of scholarships is limited.
Please note that any accompanying documentation will not be returned and that the university's Scholarship Award Committee's decision is final.
