This scholarship is worth £3,000 a year for each year of study, paid directly to you – a total of up to £9,000 over a three-year course if renewal criteria is met (or £12,000 for MEng/MSci students).

How do I apply?

There is no need to complete a separate application form to be considered for an International Science and Engineering Excellence Award. Students will be considered for an award on the basis of the information they provide in their UCAS or online application to Queen Mary. Successful candidates will be informed of their award via email notification from the Science and Engineering Faculty Office. To receive this scholarship, you must confirm Queen Mary as your firm choice.

Eligibility criteria

  1. You must have achieved grades of
    • AAA in key A-levels, or
    • 36 points in the International Baccalaureate, or
    • D*D*D in the BTEC National Diploma, or
    • Distinction in 45 level three credits in the Access to HE Diploma, or
    • Overseas equivalent.
  2. You must be eligible to pay Home/EU tuition fees.
  3. This scheme is available only to students who apply for and enrol in an eligible course in the Faculty of Science and Engineering in the 2017/18 academic year.
  4. The qualifying grades must be in the subjects expressed in the offer of admission
  5. Students must be new entrants into Higher Education, ie, have not previously studied part or all of an undergraduate degree level course.
  6. Students must meet the eligibility criteria for the full package of Student Finance, ie, must be eligible to apply for a Maintenance Loan in addition to a Tuition Fee Loan. EU students who are only eligible to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan are therefore not eligible for a scholarship.
  7. Up to 20 Excellence Scholarships will be awarded to the highest-achieving applicants who accept Queen Mary as their firm choice, and who achieve at least AAA (or equivalent) in the eligible programmes listed above. We will first compare students’ A level (or equivalent) grades and scholarships will be awarded to the 20 students who achieved the highest A level (or equivalent) grades in the subjects that formed part of their offer, e.g. a student achieving A*AA will be given priority over a student achieving AAA. If further prioritisation is required we will compare performance at GCSE (or equivalent) level on the same basis.
  8. The Science and Engineering Foundation Programme does NOT form part of the Scholarship scheme.
  9. Our policy on payment of the Scholarship during years in industry is under consideration.
  10. Payment of the Scholarship for the first year is automatic for all of those with the requisite entry qualifications described above. Payment in subsequent years is contingent on an overall academic achievement mark of above 80% in each year of study at Queen Mary (ie, you must achieve an overall mark of above 80% in every progression year to maintain the Scholarship).
  11. This scholarship scheme operates independently of the Queen Mary Bursary Scheme. You could receive more than one award.

Students who have queries regarding their academic achievement for the year should contact their School. Where a student experiences extenuating circumstances that affect academic performance or progress, continued receipt of an award will be considered within the College's existing extenuating circumstances procedures.

Please note School scholarships are subject to university wide Terms and Conditions as well as any course/School/Faculty conditions or criteria outline.
