More and more students from overseas are choosing to study at Bolton. Students from more than 100 countries are proud to call Bolton their home.
We are proud to offer the International Excellence Scholarship to full-time self-funded students* joining taught masters courses in September 2023. The scholarship is worth £1,000 and will be awarded to students with exceptional academic results/achievements (usually a 1st class honours degree or equivalent).
The scholarship will be deducted at point of payment i.e. you will pay the tuition fee minus the scholarship amount. Final assessment of scholarship eligibility will be made by Admissions Team and are made at the discretion of the University.
There is no separate application form requirement. International students will be automatically assessed for these scholarships at the point of application. The deadline for being considered for these scholarships will follow the same admissions deadlines.
*Students sponsored by third party (e.g. government, employer) are not eligible for this scholarship.
We are pleased confirm this outstanding accommodation scholarship to the top-performing international applicants for September 2023.
We are offering 50 new international students one year’s free accommodation in Orlando Village in a standard room. This is a saving of more than £5,000 on accommodation costs and is available for one year’s accommodation (47 weeks).
Orlando Village is the only approved and recommended student accommodation provider by the University of Bolton; in a fantastic location, only a 10-minute walk away from both the main university campus and town centre.
The rooms are offered on a self-catering basis with a communal kitchen, WC and washing facility. Orlando Village enjoys a communal social building call ‘The Hub’ which includes a TV, table tennis, pool table and football table ideal for socialising with fellow students.
If you are interested in benefiting from the Provost Accommodation Scholarship and hold a first-class honours degree please complete the form.
Decisions are based on outstanding academic merit and early applications and acceptance of offer.
International students are eligible to qualify for the Alumni Scholarship Discount if they have previously studied at the University of Bolton. This entitles the award-holder for a £1,000 fee waiver if they meet our criteria. The award is confirmed for the 2022/23 academic year.
The University of Bolton has some of the most affordable student fees in the UK and the cost of living in Bolton is lower than most parts of the UK.
