Students on undergraduate Initial Teacher Education courses of The Newman University College, Birmingham have the opportunity to receive ten Academic Achievement Scholarships worth £2,000 over three years. The selection of candidates is based solely on academic performance. And since the number of scholarships is limited to ten, achieving the grades does not guarantee a scholarship. Students may also be awarded again in years 2 and 3 if they pass all modules at the first attempt each year, achieving an average of 60% or above across all modules and progress onto the next stage of the course at the end of every academic year.
Applicants should download and complete the application form once they have made an offer of a place at Newman. The scholarships will be awarded on the following criteria in preference order:
- ABB+ or equivalent and the highest number of A or A* at GCSE
- Most GCSEs at A*
- Attended a school with the lowest proportion of 5 A*-C grades at GCSE.
