In evaluating scholarship applications we are most interested in you as a person, and will take a broad approach to considering your application. We are very interested in your achievements to date – both academic and non-academic; both at school and outside school. We will take into account your academic performance, but also your extra-curricular interests and achievements and how you present yourself as a student looking to benefit from a Greene’s education.
In your application, you may wish to highlight your sporting achievements – looking to Greene’s as a flexible study environment where you can continue to excel at your chosen sport. You may have a passion for art or computer programming – looking for more creative guidance and stimulation from Greene’s to pursue your passion. You may be looking for academic excellence – aiming for a place at one of the world’s top universities. Whatever it might be, we are interested.
The amount of a scholarship award is from 30% up to 100% of the total course fee. For A levels, this is limited to a choice of three of the core A level subjects available - please contact us for more information.
As part of your application we ask you to write a personal statement of no more than 4000 characters – usually about one sheet of A4 paper – describing:
You will need to submit your personal statement with your online application. We suggest that you complete this separately and before completing the online application so that it is ready to upload.
If you think it could help your application, please also send us copies of any significant work that you have produced – either individually or as part of a group. This could be a school project, a piece of research or long essay.
After you have completed and submitted your scholarship application we will contact you to arrange an interview. Before doing so we may need to ask you for additional information and/or clarification of the information in your application.
If there are parts of the application that you are not sure about or about which you would like some advice please do not hesitate to contact us.
The deadline for applications for September 2021 entry is 30th April 2020, and the decision by Greene's will be given by 31st May 2020.
