Undergraduate Scholarships 2009 / 2010, The University of Westminster, UK
Scholarships for UK/EU students
The University has a generous scholarship scheme for UK/EU students.
Our gold level scholarships are worth £12,000 over three years and our
silver scholarships are worth £6,000 over three years.
All scholarships will be paid as tuition fee costs, except in cases
where the award exceeds the cost of the fees, where the excess will be
paid as a cheque. All cheques will be made available in January 2010.
The scholarship is guaranteed for the first year, but subject to satisfactory academic progress for subsequent years.

The scholarships are available for any undergraduate course in the
University. These are open to all applicants. For half of the available
scholarships, priority will be given to you if you are from our
associate and partner colleges and schools.
Typically, a gold level scholarship is set at three As at A level,
or equivalent qualification, and silver level is set at three Bs at A
level, or equivalent qualification. Please note this academic criterion
is not an absolute criterion, and other factors such as financial need,
difficulties overcome, being the first in your family to attend
university and your supporting statement will be taken into
consideration. The average entry qualifications for particular courses
will also be a consideration.
Deadline: 3 April 2009.
For all UK/EU scholarships in this section.
Helena Kennedy Foundation
The University is pleased to be associated with the Helena Kennedy
Foundation, and will make a number of awards to those of you coming
through this route. The Helena Kennedy Foundation exists to tackle
injustice and social exclusion through education, by supporting you if
you are disadvantaged and come from further and adult education sectors
to complete your studies and move on successfully into employment.

University has a number of scholarships available for you if you have
