About Scholarship

University College London (UCL) and the Africa Educational Trust (AET) have agreed to collaborate in a scheme to enable students from Africa, who are financially unable to study in the UK, to pursue full-time undergraduate studies at UCL. With this scheme UCL supports the aims of AET to help the people of Africa. Under the scheme, two full bursaries are available annually for AET-nominated students who have accepted offers of places at UCL.

By what Criteria is Selection Made?

  • be currently attending school or have recently completed school in an African country;
  • have before or by January applied to UCAS for admission to a full-time undergraduate degree programme of study at UCL starting the following September, which they intend firmly to accept UCL (as the insurance offer choice does not satisfy the conditions of the bursary);

  • lack the financial means necessary to pursue undergraduate degree studies at UCL.

Each bursary consists of full tuition fees and a maintenance allowance for the duration of the student’s programme of study, as well as economy air travel to/from the UK at the beginning and end of the bursary-holder’s degree programme.

Annual renewal of the bursary is subject to good academic progress by the student.
