University of Greenwich Scholarship 2018

{tab=Undergraduate Programme }

This scheme will be available to new undergraduate honours degree students only, who are starting a programme of study with us in 2018-19.

You will need to be assessed to pay fees at the home1 rate and be paying programme fees of over £6,165 for full-time students and over £4,624 for part-time students (where the part-time fee is pro-rata to a full-time fee of over £6,165 and is at least over £4,624 for study of 90 credits). Students will also need to have a household income of less than £25,000 and must have made the university their firm choice by the May 2018 deadline.

Students do not need to apply for this scholarship and there are a capped number of awards: the university therefore will select candidates based on the eligibility criteria up to a certain number of awards. Priority for these scholarships will be given to students that have attended one of our feeder school or colleges as part of our commitment to widening access.

The selected eligible students will receive, in the first year of study only, a £1,000 fee waiver and £1,000 credited to an Aspire@Greenwich card. Part-time eligible students will receive a pro-rata fee waiver only, subject to the number of credits that they are taking in year one of study only. Students who are also eligible for the £200 Aspire@Greenwich bursary for learning resources as detailed below will not receive the £200 as an addition to the £1,000. Students eligible for the £200 Aspire@Greenwich bursary will therefore receive this £200 credit as part of the £1,000 total award credited to the card under the Greenwich Scholarship scheme.

Students who are following part-time programmes or are EU nationals2 will not be eligible for the maintenance element of any Greenwich Scholarship Programme award and therefore would not receive the Aspire@Greenwich additional Bursary element of any GSP awarded.

  • Ordinarily resident1 in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
  • NHS funded students
  • Funded for Postgraduate Initial Teacher Training by the Teaching Agency (formerly the TDA)

High Achievement Scholarship

We are committed to inspiring society through the discovery, application and dissemination of knowledge. These scholarships reward excellence and high achievement in students who seek to make a difference to society. You will need to be a new Home1 or EU2 student entering a full-time undergraduate degree programme in 2018/19 at the university who has achieved ABB or higher in A-levels or certain other equivalent qualifications as specified by the university which will be published shortly. You will also need to hold a grade B (or grade 6) or above in GCSE Maths & English (or relevant EU stipulated qualifications) and be paying the maximum fee of £9,250.

You must also hold the University of Greenwich as a firm choice or alternatively have been offered a place in Clearing/Adjustment.

Successful students will be awarded a bursary of £2,000 for each year of study up to a maximum of three years, with qualification for the bursary in years two and three of study conditional on you undertaking a minimum of 120 credits and gaining an overall mark of 65% in the preceding year of study. There is no need to apply for this award students who hold at least one of the qualification/grade combinations, as specified by the university and fit the published criteria will be considered part of the High Achievement Scholarship population by the University of Greenwich.

Students eligible for the High Achievement Scholarship are also eligible for the Aspire@Greenwich scheme and the Care Leaver Bursary provided that they also meet the criteria for these awards. Students eligible for the High Achievement Scholarship will not be eligible to receive the Greenwich Scholarship Programme or the Access Scholarship.

Please note that students who are

  • Direct entrants to the second and third or any later years of study
  • Who are already graduates or are studying for Equivalent or Lower Qualifications to those that they already hold,
  • Assessed as studying for a postgraduate programme,
  • Following a programme funded by the NHS or
  • within the School of Pharmacy

Access Scholarship

This scheme will be available to new undergraduate honours degree students only, who are starting a programme of study with us in 2018-19 who are in receipt of full state support that have not been able to access the Greenwich Scholarship Programme.

You will also need to be assessed to pay fees at the home1 rate and be paying programme fees of over £6,165 for full-time students and over £4,624 for part-time students (where the part-time fee is pro-rata to a full-time fee of over £6,165 and is at least over £4,624 for study of 90 credits). This scholarship offers funding of £500 credited to a smart card for full-time eligible students studying an honours degree. Funding is made up of the £200 Aspire@Greenwich bursary (see below) supplemented by an additional £300. Part-time students will also be eligible for the Access Scholarship which will be pro-rata on the basis of the number of credits studied in the first year of study only.

Students do not need to apply for this scholarship and there are a capped number of awards: the university therefore will select candidates based on the eligibility criteria up to a certain number of awards. Priority for these scholarships will be given to students that have attended one of our feeder school or colleges as part of our commitment to widening access.

This is a single award which will be payable in the first year of study only. Students who qualify for the High Achievement Scholarship will not receive this award in addition.
