International Merit Scholarships
We are delighted to offer the International Merit Scholarship to exceptional international applicants
LSBU values the academic contribution that international students bring to the University. Through the International Merit Scholarship, LSBU aims to recognise and reward exceptional talent enabling academically strong candidates to take their studies to the next level with us.
The International Merit Scholarship offers students pursuing undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes with outstanding academic profiles a fee reduction of up to £3,000 on each year’s tuition fees for those who meet the criteria.
To be eligible for an International Merit Scholarship, you must:
- Hold a valid unconditional and current offer of a place for a full-time taught undergraduate degree or postgraduate taught degree programme beginning in September 2018 or January 2019.
- Be classified as an Overseas Student for fee paying purposes. The programme must be a minimum of one year in duration and taught on campus at LSBU.
- Have achieved the Scholarship's academic pre-requisites in the qualification being considered for entry, according to the Appendix in the Terms and Conditions (PDF File 238 KB).
All decisions are made by the scholarship panel and are final.
The International Merit Scholarship is only available to new applicants for an LSBU undergraduate or postgraduate taught degree programme having met the above criteria. Current students will not be eligible. Students who do not meet the academic criteria for this scholarship will be eligible for a £1,125 International Scholarship.
The International Merit Scholarship will be applied to each full year of the course. For subsequent years of the programme (excluding the work placement year for students taking the sandwich degree option and the short second year for students studying a top-up degree programme), the £1,125 International Scholarship will be available.
