A cash scholarship worth up to £3,500 (over the course of a three-year degree) is being offered by the University of Bradford to all Home and EU students who obtain AAA or above in their A-levels (or equivalent). Students enrolled in an undergraduate degree programme for more than three years would be eligible for financing for the additional years, assuming they made adequate progress throughout the programme (excluding any years you are paying a reduced fee, for example when you are on a sandwich year). There is no limit to the number of scholarships that can be awarded — all students who are qualified will be considered for the grant in the first instance.
Those students from the United Kingdom and the European Union who obtain AAA or better in their A-Levels or equivalent (from three Level 3 qualifications only) – a complete list of all qualifications and their equivalencies can be found here:
- Please keep in mind that the AAA Scholarship is tied to your academic performance and not to your offer or your UCAS tariff points.
- If you have a combination of three levels 3 qualifications that are not listed, or if your country of residence or qualification is not listed, please send an email to AABscholarship@bradford.ac.ukto check if you are qualified for the AAB Scholarship Program.
- Students must be beginning their first full-time undergraduate degree programme in September 2018 in order to be considered.
- In the event that you already have a bachelor’s degree, you will not be considered for the scholarship.
- If you are transferring to us from another university, you will not be eligible for the scholarship unless you transfer into stage 1 of your programme, which is the foundation year or first year of your degree.
In Year 1, you will receive a guaranteed £1,000 in addition to a £500 Blackwell’s card, and you will receive an additional £1,000 in consecutive years if you progress at a rate of 60.00 percent or higher (across all modules). You will receive a guaranteed £500 in Year 1, plus a £500 Blackwell’s card, and an additional £500 in succeeding years, if you progress with an average of 60.00 percent or above (across all modules).
The Blackwell’s card can be used at our University bookshop as well as online, and it is valid for the duration of your degree. The remaining balance on the card must be used while you are enrolled as a student at the university. Upon completion of your course, any funds that are leftover will be donated to the University library. Please visit Blackwell’s website for additional details.
In the event that you have given Student Finance England your bank account information, you will receive the award directly into your bank account. The first-year prize will be paid in two equal installments, one in November and one in April, for the following year. Those who develop at a rate of 60.00 percent or higher in subsequent years will receive their prizes in two installments, one in November and one in April, respectively (i.e. you must achieve an average of 60 percent across all your modules – every result is taken into account).
Q: How long does it take for the application to be completed?
The amount of time required depends on the circumstances of the home, but it is usually accomplished in less than an hour.
Q: How are successful applicants notified of their award?
Once the eligibility for the scholarship is determined, the family is notified by postal mail and, if won, a School Commitment Form (SCF) is issued to submit their choice to an acceptable private school. School and parent complete the form, which the school thereafter sends to AAA. After completing the AAA attendance verification process, scholarship payments are made four times a year. Each scholarship check must be signed by the school’s parent before depositing it into the school’s account. This will require at least four face-to-face parent-administrator meetings per year.
