Eligibility for the Scholarship:
Eligible Countries: UK/EU and Overseas students are eligible to apply for this scholarship programme.
Entrance Requirements: When you apply for the scholarship you need to be in possession of a conditional or unconditional offer for the first year of an undergraduate degree course starting at UEA in September 2018. Your offer should state that you are an international fee-paying student.
To be classified as an international fee-paying student you typically need to be a non-EU resident. Our fees and funding page has more details of who will pay international tuition fees, and therefore be eligible to apply for these scholarships. If you are still in doubt then email our Planning Office who can advise you further.
You need to be independently funding your studies, which mean that you can’t apply if an organization is sponsoring your study and paying your tuition fees for you. However, if you are getting a government loan you can still apply for the scholarships.
Please note that offer holders for courses in Norwich Medical School, Occupational Therapy or Physiotherapy are not eligible to apply for this scholarship.
You are eligible for an Undergraduate International Scholarship under these Terms if you meet all these criteria:
- You are an overseas fee-paying student. If the fee status changes during your course from Overseas to Home/EU Fees the scholarship shall be discontinued. Other scholarships are available for UK and EU citizens, details can be found at https://www.uea.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/scholarships/scholarships-for-2017-entry
- Scholarship applicants must hold either a conditional or unconditional offer for year 1 of study on an undergraduate degree course at UEA at the time when they submit the scholarship application form for an eligible course.
- To receive the scholarship you must have selected UEA as your firm choice institution, not your insurance choice.
