Southampton Merit Scholarships - Students applying for 2015 entry

Our Southampton Merit Scholarships are worth £1000, and are awarded to the highest-achieving, first-year entry UK and EU students across the University (with the exception of Medicine and NHS-funded Health Science programmes). There is no need to apply and the criteria for the scholarship are as follows:

  1. You must exceed the grades contained within your offer.

  2. You must achieve a minimum of AAA or the equivalent standard in other qualifications (for some subjects this may include your portfolio or audition).

  3. You must make University of Southampton your firm acceptance to be eligible.

  4. 'Your offer' will be the highest of any offers you are made, should you transfer to another course. In certain cases where a group of programmes share a first semester any scholarship will be based on the highest offer for that group of programmes.

    You are eligible to be considered for a scholarship whether or not you are already receiving a University of Southampton bursary. Sum is payable at the end of the first term of study in year 1 only.
