Scholarships for International Students

Faculty of Engineering Excellence Scholarships for 2018 Entry

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 (equivalent performance in alternative qualifications may also be considered) 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 2018 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 depends on your academic achievement:

  • A*A*A* - £3000
  • A*A*A - £2000
  • A*AA - £1000

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.

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.
