Eligibility Criteria

The School of Engineering Enhancement Scholarship aims to encourage students into higher education from areas where participation in higher education is low. This is determined through POLAR data that looks at postcodes and the proportion of 18 year-old students from a given area who go on to enter higher education aged 18 or 19. Eligible students will live in an area with a POLAR 4 score of 1 (P4Q1). The University of Birmingham must be your firm choice on UCAS.

How to Apply

There is no application process. The School will look at entry data and contact all eligible students to be awarded.
