If you are a UK or EU student and achieve AAB or above in your A-Levels (or equivalent) you are eligible for the Aston Excellence Scholarship worth £3,000.
If you are eligible for this scholarship and also qualify for one of our income-based scholarships, you will receive both. Aston Excellence Scholarships can be taken as tuition fee discounts or to support living costs, such as campus accommodation.
| || First year || Second year || Placement year || Final year || Total |
| Excellence Scholarship ||£1,000 ||£500 ||£1,000* ||£500 || £3,000 |
*Placement year scholarships can only be applied once. For example, The Aston Excellence Scholarship and some of our income-based scholarships include a £1,000 placement scholarship. If you are eligible for both these scholarship schemes, you will only get the placement scholarship once.
You do not need to apply for an Aston Excellence Scholarship. The University will automatically assess your eligibility using information on your A Level (or equivalent) results provided by UCAS.
The number of Aston Excellence Scholarships we will award is not limited. If you achieve the A levels or equivalent qualifications, listed (validated by via examination boards and at enrolment) you will be entitled to the scholarship. Terms and conditions apply and students should check the equivalence list.

We will contact you as soon as we know your grades and your place at Aston has been confirmed. If you require any additional information about your Scholarship, you can contact the Hub at Aston for support and advice.
