How to Apply

To apply for the scholarship students will need to be registered with MABECS, have accepted an offer from the University of Birmingham and have made Birmingham their firm choice by the scholarship deadline of 30 June 2023. Selection for the award will be based on academic merit.

Only under exceptional circumstances in which the University is unable to choose an awardee based solely on academic merit (for instance, if two candidates have identical grades) will applicants be asked to attend an interview.

Decisions will be announced in late July/early August and the scholarships will be awarded upon the students’ enrolment in September 2023.
