The University of Bolton is always striving to build upon the strong international community already established on campus.

To assist future international students joining us from overseas, we are proud to announce a number of new International Excellence Scholarships available to students joining bachelors, taught masters and research masters study (academic year 2020-21).

The maximum level scholarship extends to £5000 for the duration of 3 year bachelors study and £3000 for 1 year/18 months masters/PhD study. As a signal of our commitment to a globally inclusive campus, all international students will be eligible to be considered for the Bronze scholarship.

The level of the International Excellence Scholarships is broken down into three bands (Gold, Silver and Bronze) based on the academic ability of the applicant. This will provide the brightest and best students with the opportunity to reach their academic potential.

Academically excellent (gold band) students will pay nearly the same amount as a home student!
