Application Process

These awards are designed to reward applicants who have been offered a place to study with UEA and who can clearly and concisely explain how studying here at UEA will help them to make an outstanding contribution to their chosen field of study.​

Applications to our 2023 International Excellence Scheme are to be submitted via video. We would like you to film your response to the following two questions:

·         Tell us how the course you have chosen will equip you with the transferable skills required to meet your future career aspirations

·         Consider the different social and extra-curricular opportunities available to you at UEA, and outline how you may engage with these in order to enhance your experience, and those of your fellow students.

Submissions should be .mp4 format, filmed in standard definition (not HD or UHD) and no longer than 2 minutes in length.

This is an opportunity to go beyond your personal statement, mention UEA specifically and tell us why UEA is the right university for you.  

We are looking for original, engaging responses that show what you will bring to the UEA community during your studies and beyond.  You should be able to prove a track record of community contribution through volunteering or extra-curricular activity and research the opportunities that UEA can offer.  

We would encourage you to submit your scholarship application as soon as you feel it is ready. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, meaning that the sooner you apply, the sooner you will find out whether you have been successful.  

When applying for this scholarship, you must already be in possession of a conditional or unconditional offer for an undergraduate degree course starting at UEA in September 2023. Your offer should state that you are an international fee-paying student.   

Applicants in receipt of another UEA scholarship or award should note that scholarships are exclusive.  In a situation where a candidate is offered multiple awards the greater amount will be offered.
