Academic Merit Award

The Academic Merit Award gives eligible students a 20% discount on tuition fees in 2023/24

About the Award

Coventry University Wrocław is proud to offer Academic Merit Scholarships to EU students who show exceptional academic achievement.

The award will give successful students a 20% discount on the tuition fee for their first year of study. It is available for the best and brightest EU students living in an EU country, who achieve the highest results in their Matura exams or equivalent qualifications.


The scholarship is available to all EU students who have enrolled for the first year of a full-time programme starting in 2023-24 academic year, with the final intake being June 2024 (see our Academic Calendar).  

The scholarships are allocated on a first come, first served basis to applicants on the basis of their academic merit. Allocation will be decided on assessment of the following:

  • You must have enrolled for the first year of an undergraduate course starting in the 2023-2024 academic year at Coventry University Wrocław.
  • You must have achieved your country's local qualification equivalent to completing the Polish Matura with at least 65% in 2 subjects at advanced level.

This award is only available for EU nationality students who are enrolling on a full-time course starting in the 2023-24 academic year, living in the EU and who are paying their full tuition fees as an EU student.
