The University of Sheffield is extending a helping hand to international undergraduate students by offering 75 competitive merit scholarships, each valued at £10,000 per year. These scholarships aim to alleviate tuition fees for students embarking on undergraduate degree programmes starting in autumn 2024.
How to Apply: Deadline and Details
Prospective students eager to seize this opportunity can submit their applications on the official website, sheffield.ac.uk. The application window opens in late Autumn 2023, and aspiring candidates have until April 22, 2024 (1 pm) to apply for these coveted scholarships. Stay tuned as the scholarship recipients will be announced on May 15, 2024.
Eligibility and Selection Criteria
To qualify for these scholarships, applicants must ensure that their programme is scheduled to commence at the University of Sheffield in autumn 2024. Additionally, they need to receive an offer for a course studied in full at the university, with exceptions for Medicine (A100/A101) and Dentistry (A200). Self-funding and eligibility to pay overseas tuition fees are essential for tuition fee purposes. Candidates must not be sponsored students and should enter a degree programme at the University of Sheffield in either programme year 1 or year 2. It’s crucial to note that MArch programmes are considered postgraduate taught programmes and are not eligible for this or any other undergraduate scholarship. While the scholarship is applied as a tuition fee discount, candidates should be prepared to showcase their achievements, academic prowess, and future ambitions for a chance at this prestigious award.
