In addition to our partnership with the University of East London, we are proud to introduce The University of East London Scholarship. This is designed to give Gateway Qualifications’ Access to HE students extra financial support as they embark on their studies at the university.

The scheme will recognise the significant commitment and sacrifices that students make to realise their ambitions of going to university. Approved providers are asked to nominate up to two students that could benefit from the scholarship fund.

Five students will be chosen by Gateway Qualifications to each receive £1,000 payable in their first year of study at UEL.

Nominees must:

  1. Have demonstrated outstanding commitment to their Access to HE studies. This could be in the face of difficult and challenging personal circumstances or extra effort above and beyond that which would normally be required of a student.
  2. Demonstrate strong motivation in studying programmes offered at the University of East London.
  3. Firmly accept the University of East London as their first choice through UCAS.

Please note the college is responsible for nominating two students alongside a short explanation of why they would benefit from the scholarship. Entries are to be sent to Sarah Doe, Access to HE Quality Manager on by Thursday 30th June 2023. Five students will then be chosen by a nominated panel to each receive £1,000 payable in their first year of study at UEL.
