We’re all about great skills! If you participate in our GREat Skills programme before you join us at the University, you could be eligible for a scholarship worth £2,000.

We want to reward local students who prepare well for university by developing their independent learning and study skills before they start with us.

If you participate in our academic skills programme before you join the university, you may be eligible for a substantial cash scholarship of £2,000.

This is paid to you in three instalments during your first year.

Am I eligible?

You will need to meet the following criteria to be eligible for the GREat Skills Scholarship:

  • You have selected the University of Greenwich as a 'Firm' choice via UCAS.
  • You are a new full-time undergraduate student paying the maximum tuition fee of £9,250.
  • You'll be studying a BA, BEd, BSc, LLB, BEng, MEng or MMath course at our Greenwich, Avery Hill or Medway Campus (not the Medway School of Pharmacy).
  • You have completed at least 4 sessions of our GREat Skills programme, or 3 sessions plus our online Independent Learners' Toolkit.

If you are joining us in September 2020, you can also meet the attendance requirements for the scholarship by completing at least four pre-recorded online webinars (under 'online resources'). You will need to record your attendance using the Mentimeter link provided in the webinar.

The Great Skills Scholarship is only open to local students living in London, Kent, Essex, Sussex or Surrey.
