| Up to £25,000 - National Scholarship Programme (NSP) |
The NSP is only available to English students. You must also live in Aston University accommodation on campus for your entire first year and/or be identified as a Care Leaver
| £1,000 |
|Students who do not receive an NSP Scholarship may be still entitled to an Aston Placement Scholarship (for unpaid placements or placements abroad. Students in receipt of an Aston Excellence Scholarship will also be entitled to the £1,000 Placement Scholarship). |
| £1,000 |
If you are studying our 4 year MPharm Pharmacy programme, which has a pre-registration year after graduation rather than a placement year, you will receive a £500 scholarship in your third year if you are eligible.
Other placement scholarships
If you are not entitled to an income-based scholarship in your placement year, you may be eligible for the full £1,000 scholarship if:
- you are taking an unpaid placement or a work / study placement abroad - Aston Placement Scholarship
- you have AAB plus (or equivalent) at A Level - Aston Excellence Scholarship
You can only receive this scholarship if you have successfully passed your second year and moved on to the placement year (third year for Pharmacy students) of your course.
Please note that placement year scholarships apply once only. For example, the Aston Excellence Scholarship and the National Scholarship Programme each include a £1,000 Scholarship or £1,000 discount on your placement year fee. If you are eligible for both these scholarship schemes, you will only get the placement year fee discount once.
