£1,000 Academic Achievement Scholarships

The University awards scholarships of £1000 to eligible undergraduate students in their first and second year of a degree course or first year of a Foundation degree or HND on the basis of their academic achievement at the University.       

Students do not apply for these scholarships as they are awarded to eligible students with the best academic profiles across the University.


Choral Scholarships

In partnership with Worcester Cathedral, Choral Scholarships of £2,000 are available to young men with counter-tenor, tenor and baritone/ bass voices and are aimed at encouraging young singers to become part of the long-standing tradition of Cathedral Music, while pursuing a course of study. The scholarships are available to students in the first, second or third year of an undergraduate course.

Scholars will receive £2,000, paid in instalments over 12 months, private singing tuition and support from a Principal Lay Clerk. In addition to regular services, the post will give an opportunity to sing with the Cathedral Choir in concerts, recordings, tours and the world famous Three Choirs Festival, for which additional remuneration will be paid.

If you are interested in discussing this opportunity further, please contact Peter Nardone, Director of Music on 01905 732916 or email: peternardone@worcestercathedral.org.uk
