Frequently asked questions

When can I apply for the Aviva Scholarship?

  • For undergraduate courses, you can apply for the Aviva Scholarship between 16 September 2019 and 30 June 2020*, for admission as part of the June 2020 undergraduate intake.
  • For postgraduate courses, you can apply for the scholarship between 16 September 2019 and 31st July 2020*. However general admission application windows vary by university and by course. Please check with your preferred institution.
*Dates may vary across universities. Please check with your preferred university. We encourage you to apply as early as possible.

When and how will I find out if I have been awarded the scholarship?

  • Your scholarship application will be submitted to your chosen universities once your eligibility for the Aviva Scholarship has been verified. Your scholarship application will subsequently be evaluated in tandem with your general admission application, based on each institution’s assessment criteria.
  • The universities will notify you of the results on both general admission and scholarship directly. Typically general admission decisions are made and communicated first, while scholarship decisions are made later. The gap between the two dates vary by university depending on their respective internal processes.
  • Should you require more details, please contact the universities directly.

Where can I check the status of my scholarship application?

As with the general admission application process, the evaluation of prospective scholars is conducted at the sole discretion of the participating universities, with no Aviva involvement. Therefore, should you have any enquiries regarding the status of your scholarship or general admission applications, please get in touch with the respective universities either through the UCAS system or a direct enquiry.

I intend to commence university studies in 2021—can I submit my scholarship application now?

Thank you for your interest in the Aviva Scholarship. Unfortunately, application for the Aviva Scholarship is currently only open to those intending to matriculate in 2020. Please leave your contact information here, and we will get in touch once scholarship application for the 2021 intake is open.

How much does the scholarship cover, and do I need to serve a bond with Aviva after graduation?

The scholarship covers 20% of tuition fees for the entire standard duration of the undergraduate or postgraduate course. There is no requirement for the scholar to serve any bond with Aviva.

If I have already applied for another scholarship, will I still be eligible to apply for the Aviva Scholarship?

  • You have every right to apply to multiple scholarships.
  • However you must not hold more than one scholarship offered by Aviva or the participating universities at the same time.
  • Should you indeed be awarded multiple scholarships by us, you will be required to declare and accept only one of them.
