UoL – Scholars Programme


University of Liverpool – Scholars Programme

Students here in sixth form were given to opportunity to apply for the prestigious University of Liverpool Scholars Programme. Those students who met certain academic and personal criteria attended a presentation from the university and completed an online application which includes a personal statement outlining why they want to be a part of the programme. 

Once accepted onto the programme there are many benefits for the students. The university organises programme of events throughout year 12 in which students attend events which provide an insight in to studying at university including both academic expectations as well as the social aspect. Students learn about the academia through a series of bespoke workshops, lectures and seminars. These prepare the students for completion of an academic assignment. This is a 2000 word essay based on a topic the student is interested in studying at university. Full support is provided by an academic tutor. 

Upon successful completion of the assignment students are then guaranteed a conditional offer of a place to study at the university. This offer is reduced by up to 2 A level grades. Once students begin studying at the university a bursary of up to £2000 is payable for each year of their study.

As you can appreciate this is a really positive achievement for our students and will help to prepare them for their future studies.
