Interested student can apply online before 3rd April 2017. The award will be given at the start of the 1st year which will be paid in two instalments of £500.

Who can apply for this scholarship ?

  • If students have completed their class 12 from West Bengal board and have got 80% or more in that, they can apply.

How can you apply ?

The applications will open on Wednesday 1st February 2017 and the deadline for applying is Monday 3rd April 2017. An online application will be available on this page during this period.


Q. What A level grades meet the requirements for the Sussex Excellence Scholarship?
 To be eligible for the Sussex Excellence Scholarship, you will need to achieve at least AAA in A level. This means any of the following combinations of grades: AAA or A*AA or A*A*A or A*A*A*.
Other equivalent combinations of grades (such as A*AB) would not meet the eligibility requirements for the scholarship as one of the three grades is below an A grade. To be eligible for the Sussex Excellence Scholarship you must have at least 3 A levels at grade A or higher.

Q. Can the International Baccalaureate Diploma score include bonus points?
 Yes, the eligibility criteria relate to the overall IB Diploma score, including any bonus points. An overall score of at least 36 points from three Higher and three Standard Level subjects, plus up to three bonus points, would meet the eligibility criteria for the Sussex Excellence Scholarship.

Q. I've applied for deferred entry in 2017, can I still get the Sussex Excellence Scholarship?
 Scholarships are awarded in the year in which you start, so the details set out here relate to students starting in September 2016. As you have an offer to start in September 2017, you would need to be considered for the Sussex Excellence Scholarship under the arrangements in place for 2017 entry. Each year the University reviews its scholarship provision and a decision regarding eligibility in subsequent years would be taken in this context.

Q. If I decide to defer my place, can my scholarship be carried over to the next year?
No, this would not be possible. Scholarships are linked to the year you start and eligibility criteria are established each year. If you defer to 2017, you will need to be considered in the context of the 2017 scholarship arrangements. This may well be very similar, but we cannot guarantee this and it is therefore not possible to carry your scholarship over.

Q. What happens if I transfer course?
The award is based upon performance before you joined the University so you will still be eligible for the scholarship provided you are transferring to another course at the University of Sussex. The only exception is if you transfer to the Brighton and Sussex Medical School which is not covered by the Sussex Excellence Scholarship.

Q. Can I have the award paid to me in cash only?
 No, the aim of the Sussex Excellence Scholarship is not only to reward academic success but also to encourage integration on the University's campus through a rent reduction.

Q. What happens if I withdraw? Will I need to repay the award?
 If you withdraw part way through your course you will not need to repay the award.

Q. I am appealing my grades, can I still receive the award?
If your appeal is successful, and provided you can supply evidence of your grades, you will be eligible for the award. You will need to ensure that you notify the Admissions Office of any change.

Q. I have been awarded the Sussex First Generation Scholars award, can I also get a Sussex Excellence Scholarship?
 Yes, you can receive the Excellence Scholarship in addition to the financial element of the First-Generation Scholars scheme. If you qualify for both you will receive in total in Year One:

  • £2,000 rent / fee waiver
  • £3,000 cash paid by the university in two equal instalments in November and March 2017
  • £1,000 cash paid through the Student Loans Company in two equal instalments in November and March 2017

Q. I think I am eligible but I have not received the award, what should I do?
 Details of your Scholarship will be showing in your online account when you register in September. If you expect to receive the Sussex Excellence Scholarship, but the rent/fee reduction is not showing when you complete online registration when you arrive at Sussex, please contact Undergraduate Admissions ( who will be able to check your details.
