The School of Civil Engineering offers 20 First Class Scholarships to eligible UK and EU undergraduates. Applicants must achieve AAA at A-level in approved subjects, including A-level Mathematics or Further Mathematics. International Baccalaureates of 36-37 points or the best three grades in suitable HL subjects will also be considered. The First Class Scholarship has a value of £1000 on entry.
Other qualifications equivalent to A-levels will be considered – please contact the Admissions Tutor to find out the criteria.
Terms and conditions
Only A-levels in APPROVED SUBJECTS count towards the Scholarship. The approved list contains subjects which are considered to be intellectually challenging (all sciences, modern languages, history, geography etc.). It excludes general studies, media studies etc. For confirmation about the status of any subject, please contact the Admissions Tutor.
The Scholarship is awarded in the student’s year of entry to the School of Civil Engineering (i.e. the academic year 2012-2013).
Students who were not awarded the Scholarship on entry will not be eligible for it in subsequent years.
Students in receipt of scholarships from organisations other than the University of Birmingham are also eligible for this award.
There is no special application process for the Scholarship. Awards will be made automatically to all eligible UK and EU students admitted to the School of Civil Engineering in September 2012.
The University’s decision as to whether a qualification is equivalent to AAA or above at A-level is final.
Conditions are subject to change. Awards are made to candidates who meet the terms and conditions current at the time of entry to the University.
