Summary

Headteachers and Heads of Post 16 can select up to five students on the basis of academic potential, rather than predicted results or performance in year 12, who will be eligible for a guaranteed tailored offer from the University of Bristol.

More Details & Minimum Requirements

Bristol Scholars will take part in a range of outreach activities, receive academic tutoring and be eligible for a tailored offer of a place on an undergraduate programme at the University of Bristol. The scheme is intended to capture the talent we know exists in our locality, to demonstrate the University's commitment to Bristol's schools and colleges and provide alternative entry routes into our programmes.

As well as a guaranteed tailored offer, Bristol Scholars students will also be able to take part in an outreach programme which will comprise: regular visits to the University, private academic tuition, study skills sessions.

Bursary -
Those students who firmly accept the offer of a place at the University and whose household income is below ?25,000 per year will also be eligible for a first year tuition fee waiver and an annual bursary of ?3,750 for the duration of their undergraduate studies.

Support during undergraduate study -
In order to ensure Bristol Scholars students are able to make a secure and successful transition to the University, support will be provided from the moment the student has firmly accepted their offer of a place in August. The students will be assigned a peer mentor, will receive additional academic support (if required) and will have a dedicated member of the UK Student Recruitment Team to contact with any queries they may have.
