Scholarships and Bursaries

Scholarships and Bursaries are currently awarded to students on the 1 Year IGCSE Programme on the basis of the student’s potential to achieve outstanding results in IGCSEs and in their education beyond Bishopstrow.


Scholarships are currently awarded to exceptional students enrolling on the 1 Year IGCSE Programme.  They are offered, to registered students on the basis of an assessment of the applicant’s school report, performance in a Skype or face-to-face interview with the College’s Principal or Director of Studies and performance in a UKiset or Password assessment.

Scholarships apply to course fees only and are worth up to 15% of the overall fees on the 1 Year IGCSE Programme.

The College currently provides assistance to 1 student on this Programme.


Bursaries are awarded to provide financial assistance to parents who could not otherwise afford to send their child to the College.  Parents in this position are welcome to apply for Bursary assistance.

Each academic year, two bursaries are available on the 1 Year IGCSE Programme, up to a maximum of 30% of fees.

Bursaries are assessed through testing as described above and also on the basis of a means-tested assessment relating to the family’s ability to pay.

The College will normally award Scholarships and Bursaries, but reserves the right not to award Scholarships and Bursaries if, in the opinion of the Principal, there is not a suitable candidate.
