Placement year scholarships for 2015 entry

Placement Scholarship 2016

£1,000 Aston Placement Scholarship: A placement year or a study year abroad is integrated into many of Aston’s degrees. The fee for this year is heavily reduced at £1,000 with loans available from the UK Government. Living cost loans are also available for UK students. 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 £18,000 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.
