Half Fee Academic Excellence Scholarships for International Students 2016/17 Entry*

These scholarships are to celebrate academic excellence in our student population.

All international students can apply for one of our Half-Fee Academic Excellence Scholarships, except for students from China and the EU (students from these countries have separate scholarships schemes).

There are 20 scholarships available in total. Of these, five are for undergraduate students from Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco and Egypt, and five are for Master's students from these countries.

Please do not apply for this scholarship until you've been offered a place to study at the University of Bradford. 

If you hold a firm offer to study with us in September 2016 and have already been awarded a £3,000 or £4,000 academic related fee scholarship (shown on your offer letter) then this is the scholarship for you.

If you hold a conditional offer from us and believe that you will obtain the equivalent of AAB in A-levels (for undergraduate study) or a first-class honours degree (for postgraduate study) then please apply for this scholarship. You must be able to prove your results by the end of August 2016.

  • Applicants must be living overseas and not nationals of China or the EU.
  • You must be applying for full-time study on any level of degree programme i.e. undergraduate or postgraduate taught (not research).

  • External students are not eligible – only those based in Bradford.

How much could I get?

The scholarship is worth half of the tuition fees.

If you are on a course lasting longer than one year then subsequent payments will depend on you getting an average of over 60%. You are not entitled to any other scholarships or discounts e.g. Alumni discount if you are in receipt of a half fee scholarship.
