High Achiever Award

The High Achiever Award scheme is only available to International Study Centre students who are progressing to the University of Leicester in September 2019. There are four awards available: one for each foundation pathway. The awards go to the highest achieving student on each International Foundation Year pathway. Each successful student gets a £2,500 fee waiver for each year of full-time study at the University. The waiver can apply to up to three years of study.

All students are eligible for the award. It doesn't matter whether you started in September or January. To be successful you must achieve the highest grades in one of the four pathways:

  • Economics and Management
  • Engineering and Technology
  • Society and Culture
  • 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.
