These Teesside University International Scholarships apply to full-time students on undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research programmes. The Scholarships are not available to students during a work placement year.     

The value of the Scholarship is either £1,000 or £1,500, based on your GPA or UKVI IELTS score. Your eligibility is assessed upon application and details will be included in your offer letter. The Scholarships are available to both sponsored and self-funded students and are awarded in the first year of study only, as a fee-reduction.

English Level Scholarship

This Scholarship is awarded based on your UKVI IELTS scores.

If you achieve a UKVI IELTS score of 0.5 above the minimum requirement for your course, you can receive £1,000

If you achieve a UKVI IELTS score of 1.0 above the minimum requirement for your course, you can receive £1,500

If you hold an English language test score other than UKVI IELTS, you have the option to submit it and sit an interview with the English Language Centre. The University will then assess if you are eligible for an English language scholarship with a value of either £1,000 or £1,500.

The following table will be used to work out whether you have scored the equivalent of half a band or a full band above the score required for your programme, and are therefore eligible for a scholarship.
