Top scholars to be rewarded in new scheme for undergraduates
Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Curran will reveal details of The Lord Mayor of London Scholarships to prospective students at the University's Open Day on Saturday 22 October 2011.
To qualify for the award students will need to:
- Attain at least grades AAB at 'A'-level (excluding General Studies)
- Have been resident in the UK/EU for three years prior to entry at City University London
- Be admitted to an undergraduate course.
There is no application mechanism and no limit to the number of awards that can be made, except on courses relating to Health. Eligible students will automatically receive the Scholarship in January of their first year. The amount given will depend on the 'A'-level results obtained and the selected course. Students who maintain a high level of achievement at City will continue to be rewarded each year. The Scholarships will not be means tested. They will not be tuition fee waivers: they will be paid directly to the student.
City expects this ambitious scheme will encourage more academically gifted young people to consider studying at one of the country's leading universities.
Professor Curran explained: "We are an academically demanding institution and those who have already shown their aptitude for study will be directly rewarded by this scheme. We hope it will give these students added support as they pursue their dreams of a career in business or the professions."
