Applicants are notified of the award by email when they receive an offer for admission.

This scholarship is automatically extended from year to year for the normal duration of the degree programme. Successful candidates must maintain full-time enrolment status in order to finish their degrees on time. Should the candidate be unable to graduate on the expected date, all additional costs will be at the student’s expense.

In case students receive other forms of financial aid (scholarships and accommodation offered by EDUCatt), the UCSC International Scholarship will not be awarded.
