Entrance Scholarships & Merit Awards
For October 2017 applicants
The Entrance Scholarship and Merit Awards competition requires you to sit two exams in two different subjects – we have 38 subjects for you to choose from.
Scholarships are worth MUR 54,100 (GBP 1000) to MUR 64,920 (GBP 1200) tuition fees reduction a year. All scholars are given an unconditional offer of a place at Aberystwyth University, UK or at Aberystwyth University, (Mauritius Branch Campus), and a guarantee of a place to live in a University residence throughout their time as an undergraduate student (at Aberystwyth University, UK only).
Students who do not receive a Scholarship, but whose performance in the exam is deserving of recognition, are offered Merit Awards. All Merit Award holders will receive a MUR 54,100 (GBP 1000) tuition fees reduction in their first year of study, together with an unconditional offer. Candidates who narrowly miss out on achieving a Scholarship or Merit Award may be given a reduced or unconditional offer on the basis of their performance in the examinations.
The exams take place on Tuesday, 31st January 2017, and can either be taken at Aberystwyth University, Wales, or Aberystwyth University, (Mauritius Branch Campus) in Mauritius, at your school or college, or it may be possible to sit the examinations at another location outside of the UK.
In order to be eligible for the scholarship examination the applicants will have to apply to study with us for October 2017 start before 15th January 2017 and return The Entrance Scholarship Application Form via e-mail, post or in person before 15th January 2017 to Mr Rafal Leja (firstname.lastname@example.org). Late applications will not be considered.
2017 Examination dates will be published soon
If you are deferring your application to 2018, you can sit the exams in 2017 (and defer any award you receive) or in February 2018.
It's a good idea to look at our past Entrance Scholarship Exam Papers to get a feel for the type and level of questions likely to be asked.
