By post 13 October 2017

*Please note that all scholarship applications are open to new students only. If you are a current student at the University of Westminster, unfortunately, you are not eligible to apply, however you can apply for current student scholarships. For more information check the information for current students page.

For UK/EU undergraduate scholarships, the University has an online application process which will open early 2018. When applying, you may apply for as many scholarships as you wish (if eligible), although no student will be awarded more than one scholarship.

Unless you are eligible for any specific scholarships, on your application form you will need to tell us honestly the two minimum levels of funding that you require and then your application will be assessed for all of the scholarships within that category.

You should only apply for the level of funding you actually need as we assume that you are applying for the minimum funding you require to take the course and we do not consider you for smaller scholarships if you are unsuccessful in gaining the larger one.

Please note – our full scholarships and full tuition fee scholarships are not available to MBA applicants (who are only eligible to apply for the dedicated MBA Scholarships).

International undergraduate and postgraduate applicants

Applying by post

International undergraduate and postgraduate scholarship applicants must send their application to us by post. Due to the volume of applications we receive we cannot accept any applications via email.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that the application is received before the deadline date. Due to our very tight timescales we cannot accept applications which are received late or with a postmark of the deadline date.

Please send applications to:

Scholarships Office

Cavendish House
101 New Cavendish Street
London W1W 6XH
United Kingdom

The Scholarships Office will email you to acknowledge receipt of your application. If you require proof of delivery, please use a delivery or courier service which allows you to track your package and verify receipt.

All scholarship applications are screened to ensure the basic eligibility criteria for the scholarships selected have been met. If we find that you do not meet the requirements you will be informed via email. Please note applications that do meet the criteria for our scholarships will be assessed and shortlisted once the application deadline for the relevant scholarship intake has passed.
