The University of Westminster has several awards to assist international undergraduate students with their studies at the University of Westminster. Please note you must be offered a place on a course from the Admissions office before you can apply for one of our scholarships.
Please read the criteria and eligibility requirements for the scholarship carefully and pay close attention to the application deadlines. All scholarship applications for international undergraduates must be submitted via post.
University of Westminster, UK
Full tuition fee award, accommodation, living expenses and flights to and from London.
Eligibility for the Scholarship:
You must be an international student from a developing country and hold an offer for a full-time undergraduate degree at the University. For the list of developing countries, please see appendix B below. The scholarship will be renewed each year subject to satisfactory academic performance.
Do I have to have an offer of a place on a course before I can apply for a scholarship?
Yes you do. You can only apply for a scholarship once you have applied for admission for a place on the course you wish to study and been offered either a conditional or unconditional offer. We cannot accept any scholarship application without an admissions offer.
Guidance on how to apply for admission can be found here:
Please note that it can take from four to six weeks to get a course offer. You should therefore apply for admission to your chosen course/s at least six weeks before the relevant scholarship application deadline date.
How do I choose which scholarship/s to apply for?
Generally, we offer four different types of scholarships for international undergraduate and postgraduate students:
- Full scholarships (which provide for tuition fee costs, living expenses, accommodation and flights to and from the UK)
- Full tuition fee award scholarships (100% tuition fee award only)
- Half tuition fee award scholarships (50% tuition fee award only)
- Part tuition fee award scholarships (up to 50% tuition fee award only)
International undergraduate and postgraduate students can only apply for one type of scholarship.
UK/EU undergraduate students may apply for as many UK/EU undergraduate scholarships as they wish.
As a general rule of thumb for all applicants, the higher the value of the scholarship the more competitive the application process is. You are therefore advised to choose carefully which scholarship/s you apply for based on whether you meet the eligibility criteria and your true level of financial need.
You will only be considered for the scholarships you express an interest in at the time of application so think carefully before you apply.
As well as completing the relevant Scholarship application form, you will need to provide the following supporting documentation:
- A copy of the letter/email from the University of Westminster confirming your conditional or unconditional offer of a place on your chosen course.
- An official copy of your transcript from your most recent/current academic study.
- A reference letter written specifically in support of your scholarship application. This should be written by a previous tutor, professor, academic or employer (where relevant to your chosen degree course) and cannot be the same reference provided as part of your admission application.
Please note that certified translations of any supporting documents written in languages other than English must be provided. Also, please do not send your own personal copies or originals of documents as we are unable to return these to you.
How to Apply for the Scholarship:
Scholarship applicants must send their application to us by post. Due to the volume of applications we receive we cannot accept any applications via email.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that the application is received before the deadline date. Due to our very tight timescales we cannot accept applications which are received late or with a postmark of the deadline date.
