International sponsored students

Sponsor Letters

Provide your sponsor letter to the International Partnership and Relations Team by 4th October 2019.

We can collect it from you at your documents check during enrolment or email to international-partnerships@bristol.ac.uk

You are an international sponsored student if you have been given money to cover part or all of your course fees and/or living costs from one of the following:

  • your home government
  • the British Council
  • an international organisation or company
  • a university
  • a British independent school

Please Note: A sponsor is not a family member or friend who has agreed to pay your tuition fees.

Sponsor letters

When enrolling at the University of Bristol you will need to provide your sponsor letter to the International Partnerships and Relations team so that we can set up your records.

If we do not receive your sponsor letter by 4 October 2019, you will be invoiced for all tuition fees.

The letter must be on official headed paper from your sponsor’s organisation, and must include:

  • your name;
  • the name and contact details of your official financial sponsor;
  • the official stamp of your official financial sponsor;
  • the date of the letter;
  • the length of the sponsorship;
  • the amount of the money the sponsor is giving to you or that the sponsor will meet all of your tuition fees and any additional programme costs.

Please Note: If your sponsor letter only covers one year (and your course is longer than one year), you will need to provide a sponsor letter to the International Partnerships team at the beginning of each academic year.
