  • start your undergraduate programme in September 2020;
  • be classed as an overseas student for fee paying purposes;

Award

Unless otherwise stated, scholarships will be given in the form of a tuition fee discount and are non-transferable. No cash alternative will be offered.

If the amount of scholarship awarded is more than the cost of the tuition fees, the tuition fees will be covered in full and any remainder will not be issued.

Unless otherwise stated, undergraduate scholarships will be awarded for all years of undergraduate study taking place at the University of Bristol (not including placement years), subject to satisfactory attainment throughout the programme.

The University of Bristol reserves the right to update or amend scholarship awards without notice, based on the availability and quality of applications that are received.
