Highfliers Academic Achievement Award

Up to £600

The Highfliers Academic Achievement Award is made in recognition of excellent entry grades and continued academic success.

Eligible UK, EU, Channel Island and International students starting a course in September with entry grades equating to 136 UCAS points or more (e.g. AAB or above at A Level) will receive £200 in their first year of study.

To continue to receive the £200 award beyond the first year of your course, you will need to attain an average mark of at least 70% at the end of each year of study, and be an active member of the Highflier Scholars Scheme each academic year.

No application is necessary. Students are advised by email if they are eligible for an award, usually in late October/early November after they have enrolled on their course.

The award will be paid in February.

The full terms and conditions can be seen in our policies and procedures section.
