Africa Undergraduate Excellence Award
Unlock your potential with our tuition fee scholarship for students from Africa.
Our Africa Undergraduate Excellence Award is a new scholarship for high-achieving international students from Africa, covering a contribution towards tuition fees in the first year of your degree course at the University of Nottingham.
Applications for this scholarship in 2020 now closed.
To apply for this scholarship, you must:
- be a national of or permanently domiciled in any African country
- be classed as an 'overseas' student for tuition fee purposes
- hold an offer to begin a full-time undergraduate degree programme at the University of Nottingham in September 2020, in any subject area
How to apply
Applications for this scholarship are now closed. Scholarships for 2021 entry will be announced in late 2020.
Candidates must apply for an undergraduate degree course at Nottingham and receive an offer of study before applying for this scholarship. Search for courses and find out how to apply through UCAS.
Once you have received your offer, you can apply for this scholarship through the scholarships section of MyNottingham.
You will be asked a series of questions about your achievements, study plans and reasons for choosing Nottingham. Allow yourself time to prepare strong answers, as the scholarships will be offered to applicants based on academic merit and the strength of your application statements.
Scholarships will only be awarded to students who firmly accept our degree course within UCAS. You do not need to respond to your UCAS offers before applying for this scholarship.
This award cannot be combined with another University of Nottingham regional scholarship or an International Sporting Excellence Award. However, you may also be able to receive a subject scholarship from your academic school, a sports scholarship package, or an external scholarship from your country, where the combined total does not exceed 100% of tuition fees.
