As a student in the Department of Chemistry, you’re eligible to apply to the BP scholarship – worth up to £9,000.

Being a BP scholar will provide financial support of £3,000 per year from your second year of study, as well as much more, as you experience first-hand what BP do.

The BP scholarship can be combined with other scholarships at the University, provided the other scholarships don’t exceed an annual value of £1,500.

To apply for a BP scholarship, and to find more information, visit the BP website.


We are offering entrance scholarships of £1,000 to UK/EU applicants who achieve at least A*A*A (or equivalent) from the A-levels making up our offer. An A* must be achieved in Chemistry.

There is no formal application by you for this scholarship as you will be identified by the Admissions team following publication of the A Level results and you will be notified shortly afterwards if you are eligible for the scholarship.
