Discover excellent scholarship opportunities

If you study at the International Study Centre, and plan to progress to a degree at the University of Leicester, you may be eligible for a scholarship.

Scholarships vary depending on the course, rewards and eligibility criteria so please read all terms and conditions carefully. 

High Achiever Award

The High Achiever Award scheme is exclusively for International Study Centre students progressing to the University of Leicester in September 2017. There are four awards available - one for each foundation pathway - awarded to the highest achieving student on each International Foundation Year pathway, in the form of a £2,500 fee waiver for each year of full-time study at the University, up to a maximum of three years.

All students are eligible for the award – regardless of whether they have started in September or January, as long as they achieve the highest grades in one of the four pathways: Economics and Management, Engineering and Technology, Society and Culture and Science.

The advice I would give to other students is to focus, listen to your teachers and always put in your best, whether it’s a small test, random classwork or an exam. Also, be always positive and expect the best.
