International Scholarship Fund
Cardiff University offers a highly prestigious International Scholarship Fund designed to attract and reward the brightest students.
There is a wide range of distinct scholarships available for international students, at all academic levels: Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught, and PhD.
More information, including details on how to apply, is available from the University’s International Scholarship Fund website.
The School of Music is endowed with several scholarships and prizes available to undergraduate students. Many awards are presented to outstanding students either during or at the end of their period of study, but the scholarships listed here are available as entrance scholarships. Students do not need to apply for these entrance scholarships. You will be automatically considered when applying through UCAS.
Cardiff University Scholarships and School of Music Merit Scholarships
- For students who achieve AAA (or higher) in their A levels, Cardiff University offers scholarships of £3000. For full terms and conditions, please see this website
- For students applying for BMus or BA single honours and who achieve AAB, the School of Music will offer scholarships of £1500. Terms and conditions are similar to those for the Cardiff University scholarships, though these awards are administered by the School of Music.
Students who meet the conditions for either of these awards will be designated Merit Scholars. Payments for the scholarships are cash payments (spread out over the three years of study), and are not means tested.
You should be especially aware of the following conditions of the award:
- You must meet all the conditions of your offer.
- You must select Cardiff as your firm choice by 31 July 2015.
These scholarship offers are for students who begin in September of 2015. Students who defer will be eligible for any scholarship schemes available for the year of their entry.

"Receiving a vocal scholarship has meant that I am able to pay for extra music tuition throughout my first year at Cardiff University. It has allowed me to continue to develop as a singer and take a step closer to achieving my dreams."
