Birmingham attracts the best and brightest students from across the globe.  To ensure we recognise students who will flourish at the University of Birmingham, a number of scholarships are available for students applying for 2018 entry.

Chancellor's Award Scholarships

Birmingham has a distinguished history of attracting the brightest minds, with our former students going on to win Nobel Prizes and achieving success in business and government worldwide.  As a commitment to these outstanding students joining us in Dubai we are offering a select number of scholarships, worth up to AED 62,000 and equivalent to 20% of the annual fee for each year of your programme (subject to academic achievement).  These awards are available to students on all programmes, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Lord Bilimoria

Chancellor University of Birmingham

“At the University of Birmingham, we pride ourselves on being one of the most international universities in the world – through our academic staff, international students and global research partnerships. The Chancellor’s Award Scholarships give students a wonderful opportunity to become part of our vibrant international academic community. We look forward to welcoming the brightest, most enquiring minds to University of Birmingham Dubai to join us on a voyage of intellectual discovery. As the old saying goes, if you want to travel fast, travel alone; if you want travel far, travel together.”


We will confirm details to all offer holders about how you can apply for the Chancellor's Award Scholarship.
