Selection process

A selection panel consisting of senior academics and professional services staff will consider your scholarship application. When making their decision, the panel member will give regard to the following:

  • Has the applicant provided a clear rationale for applying for an Aerospace Engineering undergraduate course at the University of Sheffield?
  • Has the applicant identified clearly how the scholarship will be beneficial to their student experience?
  • Has the applicant clearly articulated future ambitions? These goals relate to the undergraduate course they have applied for, and they involve an appropriate and credible contribution from which others will benefit.
  • Has the applicant clearly demonstrated leadership and/or communication skills?
  • Has the applicant had to overcome exceptional circumstances?

Further information

  • Scholarships will be paid directly into your bank account in two instalments of £550 per level of study, for up to three years.
  • If you withdraw from the University part of all of the scholarship may be repayable.
  • If you take a period of leave of absence your scholarship may be suspended.

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 2022 entry
  • be an undergraduate student
  • be classed as an international student for tuition fee purposes
  • be taking all prerequisite subjects for your selected degree

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 dependent on your academic achievement:  A*AA - £1000, A*A*A - £2000 and A*A*A* - £3000. Equivalent qualifications can be found here.

Once in receipt of this scholarship, you will be awarded £1,000 each subsequent academic year subject to maintaining a 70% overall average mark in the previous academic year.
              
If you join us directly in year 2, please contact our Course Support Officer to discuss your eligibility for the scholarship.
              
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.

Further details:

  • The scholarship will be awarded automatically – no application is required in the first or any subsequent years.

  • 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.
