University Scholarships

If you are a truly outstanding undergraduate candidate we may be able to offer you a Coventry University scholarship. Coventry University Scholarships are awarded to recognise truly exceptional academic and sports achievement. There are four competitive scholarships that we can offer you to help you with the costs of your education. Subject to conditions, you can renew each of these scholarships for each year of your study. All of these scholarships have specific qualifying requirements; to apply for a scholarship, you must:

  • be a UK applicant to Coventry University or Coventry University London Campus;
  • have applied for a full- or part-time undergraduate degree course (with the exception of the Sports Scholarship, which is also open to postgraduate applicants);
  • be paying the full tuition fees for your course and mode;
  • select Coventry University as your first choice (CF or UF);
  • meet all the specific scholarship criteria.

There are three types of Coventry University Scholarships: Sports Scholarships, Phoenix Scholarships and Academic Excellence Scholarships.
