Terms and conditions

Progression scholarships are awarded by a committee before progression to the university and are only applicable to international fee-paying students joining the University of Surrey. The committee will make a final decision based on numerous factors, though students must be in the top 50% of academic performers in their pathway intake. The committee’s decision is final and entirely at their discretion.

The scholarships are only available to self-funded full international fee-paying students and will be withdrawn if these criteria are not met. The amount of progression scholarships available for progression is split between the September and January International Study Centre intakes. The number and value of scholarships available for each intake is published at the time of application for each intake, please contact the International Study Centre office for full information.
