Aim for a University of Nottingham International Baccalaureate Diploma Excellence Scholarship and Attend a Top 1% Global University
Posted On June 8, 2017
The city of Nottingham in the United Kingdom is perhaps best known for the alluring tale of Robin Hood and his adventures in Sherwood Forest. Notwithstanding, the University of Nottingham is also well-known and ranked in the top 1% of all universities globally, recognized for its ground-breaking, world-class research. The city of Nottingham is also known for its convenient public transportation, shopping venues, and great nightlife. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Excellence Scholarship typically provides between £2,500 to £6,000 for the first year of undergraduate study in any of the available colleges and majors. In some cases, the scholarship provides more than £6,000 depending on student need.
This scholarship is awarded to students who are considered to be ‘overseas’ for purposes of determining fees. Thus any students outside of the United Kingdom are eligible.
Candidates must also provide proof of having obtained the International Baccalaureate Diploma with a score of 40 points or greater. Additionally, students must have an offer to commence full-time, undergraduate studies in September 2017 in any degree programme at the university’s UK campus (this excludes BMBS Medicine students). The results of the IB diploma must be sent to the university by August 1, 2017.
Applying for the scholarship is easy in that it requires no separate application! Awards of £2,500 to £6,000 are determined entirely by the IB Diploma scores the student has achieved. A caveat to keep in mind is that the scholarship is dispensed subject to availability of funding, so interested students should apply as early as possible and make sure to have given a firm acceptance response to the university as their first choice of school in UCAS. As with many scholarships, a student’s need will also weigh heavily on the decision to award them a scholarship and determine the amount they receive. In this sense, the scholarship is one of the fairest and most streamlined of any a student will encounter, and it is entirely acceptable to combine the award with other scholarships from the University of Nottingham.
