Warwick Undergraduate Global Excellence Scholarship

Warwick Undergraduate Global Excellence Scholarship

Brilliant minds have always been welcome at Warwick.

We believe there should be no barrier to talent. That's why we are committed to offering a scholarship that makes it easier for gifted, ambitious international learners to pursue their academic interests at one of the UK's most prestigious universities. In 2020 the University of Warwick announced a generous scholarship scheme to help international fee paying students with tuition fees for 2021 entry and we’re delighted to confirm that the scheme has been approved to run again for students joining us in September 2022 and 2023. Our Warwick Undergraduate Global Excellence Scholarship is your invitation to join us in the creation of knowledge that can change both the world, and your own career opportunities. It is our way of showing that there is no barrier to talent.

In the first year of the scheme Warwick awarded scholarships totalling approximately £2.75million to students from more than 60 different countries.
