The university offers multiple scholarships, but only one full scholarship program for international students, i.e. the Westminster Undergraduate Full Scholarship. This is a full scholarship that covers full tuition fee award, accommodation, living expenses and flights to and from London. The scholarship will be renewed each year subject to satisfactory academic performance. If you are awarded a full scholarship or a full fee scholarship you will not be required to pay the 4,000 pounds international student deposit and your admissions office will be notified of this.


  1. You must be an international student from a developing country

  2. You must hold an offer for a full-time undergraduate course.

  3. You must have proof of academic excellence, financial need and development potential.

As part of your application, you have to provide the following information about your eligibility:

  • Your career aspirations and how you plan to contribute to your chosen field in the future, as well as a detailed development plan on how you intend to use the knowledge and experiences gained through the course to contribute to development of your country


Before you can apply for a scholarship, you must first apply for and hold an offer on a course at the University of Westminster. Once you hold either a conditional or unconditional offer on a course, you will be provided with a confirmation email by the admissions office. At this point, you may apply for a scholarship. Most offers of scholarships will be made conditional on students achieving required grades, which are usually of a higher standard than the entry requirements for the course.

As well as completing the relevant Scholarship application form, you will need to provide the following supporting documentation:

  1. A copy of the letter/email from the University of Westminster confirming your conditional or unconditional offer of a place on your chosen course.

  2. An official copy of your transcript from your most recent/current academic study.

  3. A reference letter written specifically in support of your scholarship application, written by a previous tutor, professor, academic or employer (where relevant to your chosen degree course) and cannot be the same reference provided as part of your admission application.

Universities will not be able to see where else you've applied until after they've made you an offer. Full details on completing your application are provided on the UCAS website.
