If you're starting at Essex in 2022 and achieve academic excellence in your International Baccalaureate, we will offer you a scholarship of £2,000 for your first year.
The following students are NOT eligible for the International Baccalaureate Excellence Scholarship regardless of meeting the above criteria:
If you meet all the eligibility criteria you will be automatically considered for the bursary. You don’t need to complete an application form. Successful applicants will be notified via their Essex email account by November 2022.
The scholarship is worth £2,000 for the first year of study only. Payment will be made in two instalments, normally in February and May by bank transfer. You must open a UK bank account and we will contact you by email before each payment date to request that you enter your bank details into My Essex so payment can be made. Students must be registered for full-time study to receive payment (see bursary suspension below). Please note that if our records show that you are in debt to the University when an award payment is due to be made, the payment will be offset against your student account in the first instance and you will be entitled to receive any balance.
Please read the full terms and conditions for your entry year before applying for or accepting a scholarship or bursary. They contain important information about eligibility, how you'll receive your funding and whether this award can be combined with others or not.
If you're a current student looking for information about an award you received, see our terms and conditions for previous years.
