A grant scheme designed to give Access to HE students extra financial support as they embark on their studies at university.

In addition to our partnership with the University of East London, we are proud to continue to offer The University of East London Scholarship.

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 who could benefit from the scholarship fund.

Three students will be chosen by Gateway Qualifications to each receive £1,600 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 what a student would normally require.
  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:

  • Learning providers are responsible for nominating two students alongside a short explanation of why they would benefit from the scholarship.
  • Only students studying Gateway Qualifications Access to HE Diplom will be eligible.
  • Entries are to be sent to access@gatewayqualifications.org.uk by 28th June 2024.
  • Three students will then be chosen by a nominated panel to each receive £1,600 payable in their first year of study at UEL.
