Cellular and Molecular Medicine is always keen to receive applications for study from international students. In our experience international students do well academically and enjoy their time in Bristol. International applicants are always welcome to visit us prior to applying to study here. There is no formal interview for applicants and applications are made through University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
We are willing to consider applicants with a range of qualifications, provided they are equivalent in standard with the grades of our UK A-level offers. For further information on qualifications please see the University undergraduate prospectus.
We may offer overseas bursaries of £2,000 to international students of outstanding academic ability.
International candidates who receive an offer for a place on a programme in the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine through the normal Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) route will be offered the opportunity to apply for an Undergraduate International Scholarship. Each scholarship will be to the value of £2000 per annum, payable towards your tuition fee. The scholarship will be annually renewable subject to your satisfactory academic progress, and may run for the full duration of the Programme.
We require no additional documentation as scholarships are awarded on the basis of your UCAS form. Your application will not normally be considered until you have accepted our offer formally, through UCAS. Students whose fees are paid by outside sponsorship are not eligible for an award.If you are classed as overseas for fees purposes, you may apply for an Undergraduate International Scholarship.
If you are successful, we will notify you in May/June that you are allocated a Scholarship. The award will be provisional until you have fulfilled the conditions of acceptance onto the programme of study (results of examinations and English Tests if required).
Each year we carefully review all applications we receive and the strongest International applicants may be nominated as a Dean's Scholar, provided that they firmly accept the offer to study and fulfil the conditions detailed below.
