Vice Chancellor & Principal's Scholarship

In each academic year:

5 Full Scholarships (all UCB tuition fees and UCB accommodation paid)

Selection Criteria

These scholarships are open to applicants recommended by recognised international partner institutions only. Applicants must demonstrate excellence in academic achievement.

Applicants must have accepted an offer of a place on a full-time taught programme at UCB and the chosen programme should be of at least one year's duration and leading to an academic award at Higher Education level. Applicants must not previously have been enrolled on the programme concerned, previously been enrolled on a FdA programme at the College in the same subject area (if entering the final year of a first degree programme) or have previously received a scholarship from the College.

The award of a Principal’s Scholarship is subject to any necessary visa clearance by the UK immigration authorities. An offer of a Principal’s Scholarship will be made to successful applicants and this offer may be used as evidence to the UK authorities of certain costs being met. However if a visa is not permitted the Scholarship will be withdrawn and there is no automatic reconsideration at any future point.

Applications Procedure

Applicants must complete the standard application form. Ensure that the category of scholarship/fee waiver applied for is clearly noted, provide full documentary evidence of academic excellence with the application, and attach a letter of confirmation of recommendation from the recognised partner institution. 

Applications must be sent to:
