Our Be Exceptional scholarships are awarded to international students to support them to achieve their goals at the University of York. We have a number of awards ranging from a £2,500 to £7,500 tuition fee discount. If you are successful, this discount will be applied in your first year only.
There will be two opportunities in which you can apply for this scholarship. You can submit an application in either round one or round two (see details under how to apply).
