Loughborough University is making over 100 scholarships available in 2012/2013 to new self-financing full-time international students who are permanently resident in a country outside the European Union (EU). The Loughborough University Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and potential. Each scholarship will be of 1 year’s duration.

Worth of Awards: These scholarships will be to the value of 25% of the programme tuition fee and that value will be credited to the student’s tuition fee account.


Applicants with exceptional qualifications may be offered a scholarship with their offer of a place.

Different Departments will have varying criteria for awarding Scholarships, however, in general we will be looking for students who have the equivalent of a UK First Class honours degree, or a very high 2:1 OR who have sufficient grades to demonstrate the potential to achieve this level. The precise grades vary from country to country, but the following is intended for general guidance:

Personal Statement / Work experience – The award may also be made to students who show outstanding achievement or potential in other areas. The personal statement is the opportunity to show that you have an exceptional background of achievement in other areas such as work or voluntary activities and for you to show that you have the potential to make an exceptional contribution to the University, and to society after you graduate.
