Coventry University awards a number of scholarships to international students to study at the University in the UK. Some of the available scholarships, which are open to African students as well as other international students include:
Merit Scholarship Scheme; Available to all international students applying for full-time undergraduate and postgraduate programmes at Coventry University. Scholarships are allocated on the basis of academic merit. (Postgraduate applicants must hold 2.1 or equivalent, undergraduate applicants must hold A-levels or equivalent at grades BBC).
There is no separate scholarship application process: all undergraduate applications from self-funded international students from any non-EU country and postgraduate applications from international, will automatically be considered for a merit award. You will not have to do anything, if you are successful you will be notified in due course by the International Office.
Health and Life Sciences Dean’s Merit Scholarship; The Faculty of Health and Life Sciences Dean’s Merit Scholarship Scheme offers £2,500 in year one only, based on academic performance. Scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis and applicants will need to submit a 500 word essay on “how they will use the award they gain from Coventry University to contribute to the Faculty during their time at Coventry University and the field of health and life sciences after they graduate.”
The scholarship is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate international students wishing to join a degree programme within the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences in September 2014. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of both the essay and academic merit (postgraduate applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree at grade 2.1 or equivalent, undergraduate applicants must hold A-levels at grades BBC or equivalent).
Ferguson Trust Scholarships: The Ferguson Trust Scholarships are made available through the generosity of The Allan & Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust. The Trust was set up in memory of two generations of the Ferguson family to promote education, international friendship and understanding, and the promotion of world peace and development. The Trust supports people from low-income and conflict-affected regions who want to improve their knowledge of peace and reconciliation. Scholarship amounts vary and are dependent on individual circumstances and assessment.
