We are very pleased to be able to offer financial assistance in the form of scholarships and bursaries to many of our undergraduate students.

These are our Departmental and Faculty undergraduate scholarships:

Undergraduate Academic Achievement Scholarships

The Department provides Undergraduate Academic Achievement Scholarships for all Home and EU students entering in September 2020 who achieve AAA in their A-levels (or EU equivalent).

An Undergraduate Academic Achievement Scholarship is worth £3000 of which £2000 is paid after registration and a second instalment of £1000 is paid at the end of the first year if a course average of 70% or more is achieved.

Undergraduate Academic Achievement Scholarships are distinct from the University Bursaries scheme for UK students and can be awarded on top of other bursaries you may receive from the University.

Applicants deferring entry are eligible for consideration for this award; payment will automatically be deferred until October 2021.

If you apply through UCAS for a place on one of our courses, we will send you more information about the entrance bursary scheme when we receive your application form. If you would like further details now, please contact the department.

Engineering Excellence Scholarship

We are offering a number of scholarship awards to international, undergraduate students with established and continued academic excellence.

The scholarship will be awarded to international undergraduate students who exceed the academic conditions of our standard UCAS offer. Candidates who attain A level grades of A*AA or above (or the equivalent qualification in your country) will receive the Excellence Scholarship.

To be eligible for an Excellence Scholarship you must:

  • make The University of Sheffield your first (firm) choice in the UCAS application process for 2020 entry
  • apply to study a full-time undergraduate programme in the relevant department
  • be classed as an overseas student for tuition fee purposes
  • be taking all prerequisite subjects for your selected degree
  • not have studied at the University of Sheffield International College

We will offer the scholarship in the form of a cash bursary at the start of your course should you be eligible. The scholarship amount is depended on your academic achievement: A*AA - £1000, A*A*A - £2000 and A*A*A* - £3000.

Once in receipt of this scholarship, you will be awarded £1,000 each subsequent academic year subject to maintaining a 69.5% overall average mark in the previous academic year.

If you join us directly in year 2, please contact our Undergraduate Admissions Officer to discuss your eligibility for the scholarship.

If you require further information please contact our Undergraduate Admissions Officer:

Candidates will not have to apply for these scholarships, as they are automatically awarded to all eligible students when they commence their studies in the Department in October 2020.

Further details:

  • The scholarships will take the form of a cash bursary only.
  • The scholarship will be awarded automatically in October – no application is required in the first or any subsequent years.
  • Receipt of the scholarship in subsequent years of study is subject to you achieving 69.5% overall average mark in the previous academic year. The scholarship will be withdrawn if you fail to achieve 69.5% and it will not be reinstated in the following year.
  • You will not receive the scholarship during any optional or compulsory study abroad periods or year in industry.
  • Students taking the University of Sheffield International College pathway program are not eligible for the scholarship.
  • The scholarship can be awarded in conjunction with other University of Sheffield scholarships as long as the individual does not become fully funded for tuition fee purposes, as a result of the sum of these awards.
  • The University of Sheffield reserves the right to review and change scholarship provision.
