The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers scholarships to international students applying for undergraduate programmes whose fees are not wholly paid by a sponsoring body. These are worth between £1,500 and £3,000.

||An additional £1,500

A wide range of international qualifications will be considered - please contact the Admissions Tutor to find out the criteria that would apply in each case. Full terms and conditions together with a list of common grades considered equivalent to A-level are posted on the web.
To retain the Achievement Scholarship, students must continue to perform at first class level – ie they must achieve an average mark of at least 70% at the end of each year. The Excellence Scholarship is awarded for first year only.
There is no special application process – the awards will be made automatically to all eligible students admitted to Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham who apply by the end of September to commence their studies in the September/October of their year of entry.
Students who are in receipt of support from other funding bodies which wholly cover their tuition fees are not eligible for any of the awards. Students in receipt of part-funding should contact the admissions tutor to check their eligibility.
Awards will be made to students commencing any programme offered by the Department.
