The GEES Global Futures Scholarship

Academic Year 2024
Scholarship amount £2,000

The School of Geography, Earth, and Environmental Sciences is pleased to announce the launch of a prestigious scholarship scheme open to India domiciled students coming to the School for a full time Undergraduate programme or a full time taught Master’s degree programme starting in September 2024 at the Edgbaston campus.

The scheme offers a £2,000 discount on tuition fees. In the case of undergraduate students, this is for the first year of the programme only. This is an exceptional opportunity for students from India to study programmes in Geography, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Urban and Regional Planning, and Public and Environmental Health. It is designed to widen the opportunities for students from India to study subjects which will help solve some of the complex challenges facing both the UK and India.

Eligibility Criteria

In order to be eligible, candidates must:

  • Have received an offer of admission from Birmingham for a full-time undergraduate or taught Master degree programme in GEES at the University’s Edgbaston campus starting in September 2024 and have formally accepted it.

  • Meet the academic conditions of their offer to the programme.

  • Have paid their requisite deposit, if applicable for the level of study, by the deadline stated in their offer letter from Admissions Office.

  • Be classed as domiciled in India (i.e. habitually resident in India at the point of application).

  • Be classed by the University as an overseas fee payer for tuition fee purposes and be able to pay the outstanding tuition fees that are not covered by the scholarship.

  • If a scholarship recipient withdraws from their academic programme of study at the University the scholarship will also be withdrawn, and the student will be required to pay any tuition fees owed. The date of the withdrawal (as reported to Taught Student Administration) and the type of programme will determine the amount of tuition fee that will be owed.

  • If a scholarship recipient decides to defer their programme start date, they will no longer be eligible for the award.

  • Students seeking to study on a course solely delivered as a ‘distance learning’ programme are not eligible for this scholarship.
