International Scholarships

We're investing over £1 million in scholarships to help you achieve your career ambitions here at Aston University.

We have a range of international scholarships to recognise your academic, professional, and personal experience. There are three main levels of scholarships, which are open to all international students.

To apply for a scholarship, you will need to apply for an Aston University course first. Once you have received an offer to study an Aston University course, you can then log into your My Aston Portal (MAP) account, where you will find a link to the scholarship application form. Details on how to access your MAP account can be found in your offer email.
