In addition to the statutory support that is available, as a full-time undergraduate you may also be eligible to receive additional scholarships or bursaries, depending on your financial circumstances, previous academic achievement, or the course you are undertaking.
In recognition of the role that music plays within the University, we offer a number of Music Scholarships each year. Offering approximately 20 hours of musical tuition per year for three years (total cash value of £3,000), these scholarships are open to prospective students who are performing at a grade 8 standard in an instrument or vocals and have an offer of a place on a full-time undergraduate programme (other than a programme offered by the Music Department) at the University of Birmingham.
The University is rated amongst the very best in the country for sport and this status is reflected in the wide range of sport scholarships that we offer. Our flagship scheme, called the UBsport scholarships, offers awards from £3,500 up to £6,000 separated into bronze, silver and gold categories according to the level at which you are competing.
We have also recently introduced 20 new Sport Performance Awards, which are available to undergraduates entering the University who have competed at country level or above within their sport. The awards offer £1,000 in services for the 3 years of study, dependant on upholding a minimum of 2:1 academic progression.
