If you're an international student from Bahrain and you're funding your own studies, you could be eligible for a scholarship worth £3,000 which you'll receive as a tuition fee discount in your first year.

Eligibility

You must meet all of the following conditions:

  • be classified as an international student for fee purposes
  • be fully self-funding your studies
  • be ordinarily resident in Bahrain
  • be in the first year of your undergraduate degree course in 2020-21 or 2021-22

  • for 2021-22 entry: undergraduate students must make Essex your firm choice on UCAS by 19 July 2021

Students who aren't eligible

You are not eligible for the award, even if you meet the criteria above, if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • Students undertaking courses at East 15 Acting School.
  • Students who are fully or partly sponsored.
  • These scholarship awards do not apply to deferred entry. Where a scholarship has been awarded to a student who subsequently defers entry to the following academic year, the award will be withdrawn and the applicant will be considered again in line with the terms and conditions that apply in the new proposed year of entry.
  • Students transferring into the second year from another UK higher education institution.
