Applications and further information

All applications are through University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). We recognise a wide range of qualifications that are equivalent to the grades of our A-level offers.

Undergraduate International Scholarships (Merit Awards)

International candidates who receive an offer for a place on a course in the School of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience through the normal UCAS route will be offered the opportunity to apply for an Undergraduate International Scholarship. Each scholarship will be to the value of £2,000 per year, payable towards your tuition fee. The scholarship will be annually renewable subject to your satisfactory academic progress, and may run for the full duration of your course.

We require no additional documentation as scholarships are awarded on the basis of your UCAS form. Your application will not normally be considered until you have accepted our offer formally, through UCAS. Students whose fees are paid by outside sponsorship are not eligible for an award. If you are classed as overseas for fees purposes, you may apply for an Undergraduate International Scholarship.

If you are successful, we will notify you in May/June that you are allocated a scholarship. The award will be provisional until you have fulfilled the conditions of acceptance onto the course (results of examinations and English Test if required).

Advice and support

The University has an International Office which provides information and support for international students. It runs the International Student' Advisory Service which gives advice on immigration and welfare matters, assists with visa renewals and organises events and trips for international students.
