Chancellor's Award Scholarship

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 we are offering a select number of scholarships in Dubai worth up to AED 31,000 per year which is equivalent of up to 30% of the annual fee for each year of your programme (subject to academic achievement). These scholarships in Dubai are available to students on all programmes, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Pioneers Award

As we embark upon our flagship Dubai campus, we are keen to invest in those students who commit to studying with the University of Birmingham Dubai.  If you apply early and receive an offer which you accept you will receive 5% off your first years tuition fee.

*Please note this is a percentage off your first years tuition fee and not the full years fee.

Chancellor's Full Scholarship

For students who combine academic excellence with demonstrable evidence of extracurricular talent or impact (e.g., volunteering, charity or community work, sports, music or the arts), we are delighted to be able to offer a number of fully funded scholarships. Awards will cover the total cost of tuition fees (which could amount to over 300,000 AED) and applications are invited from those students that are predicted or have achieved top grades in their high school exams.
