Scholarship & funding

Each of our scholarships has its own set of eligibility criteria which you should check carefully to make sure you are eligible before you apply.
The higher value scholarships are the most competitive, so we advise you to choose carefully which scholarship you apply for based on whether you meet the eligibility criteria and your true level of financial need.
Academic excellence is a criterion for all undergraduate scholarships. As they have students applying from various different education systems from across the world, they do not provide a fixed interpretation of academic excellence; however, your exam results must demonstrate a high level academic achievement in order to be competitive.
