The University of Leicester in UK invites applications for a tuition fee discount of 22% – 28% available to international students from eligible countries in Asia and Africa who apply for an undergraduate degree within one of the departments in the College of Science and Engineering, starting at Leicester in September 2018.

The scholarship is only valid for entry in September 2018. If you currently have a conditional offer of a place at the University, you will still need to fulfil any conditions stated on your offer letter. The scholarship is only available for campus-based courses.

The fee discount will be calculated on the basis of the standard tuition fee for each year of your course. The discount will not be applied to a year spent abroad or on an industrial placement (these years have a greatly reduced fee anyway).

In accordance with scholarship guidelines, students are allowed to hold only one University of Leicester scholarship, awarded either centrally or by a department. If you are awarded more than one scholarship, you will, therefore, receive only the higher value award.
