Placement year scholarships for 2015 entry

Aston placement scholarship 2015

A placement year or a study year abroad is integrated into many of Aston’s degrees. Most placement students are paid a salary by their employer, but the Aston Placement Scholarship can be taken as a £1,000 fee discount or to support living expenses.

To be eligible:


  • Your household income is £25,000 or below and you are eligible for the Aston Aspire Scholarship 

  • You achieve A Level grades at AAB+ (or equivalent) - making you eligible for the Aston Excellence Scholarship 

  • You take an unpaid placement year or you take a study or work placement abroad 

Your placement year scholarships can be applied once only. 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.

When will know if I have the Scholarship?

We will let you know at the start of your placement year or once your placement details have been finalised.
