Undergraduate International Partnership Excellence Award

Undergraduate International Partnership Excellence Award

The Undergraduate International Partnership Excellence Award is a scholarship award, designed to support international partnership students who have achieved academic excellence and show true passion for their chosen field of study. We are offering scholarships for high-achieving international students currently studying at partner institutions, covering £5,000 towards tuition fees for the first year of your chosen undergraduate degree course at the University of Nottingham UK.

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 29 May 2024


To apply for this scholarship, you must:

  • be studying at a partner university of the University of Nottingham
  • 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 UK in September 2024 as part of a teaching partnership programme with your home university

To check you are eligible and currently studying at a partner institution, please see

How to apply

You must apply for an undergraduate degree course at the University of Nottingham and receive an offer of study before you can apply for this scholarship. As a partner student you will apply through your home university. Please speak to your home university for guidance on this.

Once you have received your offer, you can apply for this scholarship through our application form, which will be available through the partner institution. Please contact your institution to access this application form. 

In your application, you will be asked about your achievements, study plans and reasons for choosing to study with us. Make sure you have enough time to prepare strong answers. We will assess your responses and academic merit when making scholarship decisions.

Please note that there is a strict word count limit for all questions, which is outlined at the end of each question. The system does not automatically limit this, so you would be encouraged to check your application before you submit. Any responses submitted that exceed the outlined word count may not be reviewed.

The International Partnership Excellence Award is only open to students from partner institutions of the University of Nottingham. If you submit an application but are not currently studying at a partner institution, your application may not be reviewed by the scholarship panel.

Scholarship criteria

You do not need to respond to your offer in UCAS before submitting your application for this scholarship. However, awards will only be made to students who firmly accept their offer to study with us in UCAS. 

Scholarships will be awarded after assessing all scholarship applications. We will contact you in early July 2024 to confirm the outcome of your application.

In some cases, students are eligible to apply for more than one University of Nottingham award. Very occasionally students may be offered the Undergraduate International Partnership Excellence Award alongside a scholarship from their Academic School, or a Sporting award. To maximise the reach of University's Scholarships offering, we aim not to double award, but in exceptional cases this may be possible where the combined total does not exceed 100% of tuition fees.

If you are awarded this scholarship, it will be deducted from the tuition fees charged to you as a student at the University of Nottingham. We will not pay tuition fee scholarships to you directly.
