Denys Holland Undergraduate Scholarship at University College London: £9000 per year
Posted On April 30, 2017
University College London offers degrees in a large variety of study area, from Medicine, Law, History and Social Sciences to Economics, Computer Science to Management, Mathematics, Psychology or Philosophy. If you want to study in London, UCL might be the right place for you. And international students can receive financial help to pay for their studies. One of the form the financial help comes in is the Denys Holland Scholarship.
Denys Holland Scholarship is awarded by the University College London in memory of Professor Denys Holland, professor of Law and Dean of students. The scholarship is awarded to international students, from any country, who are in a difficult financial situation and who can prove that they would not otherwise be able to fund their studies at the university.
The eligibility criteria include, beside financial hardship: having received an offer for a full time undergraduate program at the University College London, age below 25 preferably and broad interests and motivation to become actively involved in the university life, by participating at extracurricular activities and in the Student Union projects. Candidates must describe their non-academic interests also and offer information about their financial situation.
The sum offered to successful applicants is £9000 and is renewable, meaning that the student can receive it for each academic year, if his or her academic performance is considered satisfactory. The scholarship can be used to cover the tuition fee, and the sum that remains can be used by the student to support other expenses.
The students who receive this scholarship can benefit from other scholarships, bursaries or grants, if the total annual funding does not surmount the tuition fee and living expenses as calculated by the university.
Application deadline is 7 July 2017 and the results will be announced in mid-September 2017.
