Scholarships for 2013
Scholarships for students in the School of English
The University has a series of scholarship schemes to support students starting in October 2013. You can find full and up-to-date details of these on the Undergraduate Finance pages.
What follows here is a summary of some of the points relevant to applicants to the BA English, BA English and History, and BA English and American Studies.
There are three main schemes for Home/EU students:
The Departmental Scholarship: students applying to the BA English, BA English and History, or BA English and American Studies who achieve AAB in their three best A-levels or equivalent are awarded £1,250 per year towards the tuition fee. You are automatically considered for this scheme by the University.
The Chancellor’s Scholarship: students who achieve at least AAA in their three best A-levels.
University of Leicester National Scholarship Scheme: This award takes into account academic potential but also factors such as household income.
Scholarship levels have also been set for qualifications such as the International Baccalaureate, European qualifications, and Access to Higher Education courses. Click on the links above for each scheme to find details.
Important Points to Note:
If you have been made an offer by the School of English then the criteria for admission may differ from what you would need to gain a scholarship. For example, the Chancellor’s and Departmental Scholarships do not count A-level General Studies as one of the 3 A-levels towards the scholarship. Offers from the School of English normally do include General Studies.
Please check the Eligibility Criteria for the schemes. For example, if you are student from Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, or outside the UK there are different funding arrangements.
