Aberystwyth University has seen another increase in the number of applicants for its entrance exam scholarships held today (Tuesday 31 January 2016).

The examinations are being held across a series of educational centres and institutions in more than 12 different countries.

Applicants from Romania, Italy, France, Hungary, Sweden and the USA are among those who have travelled to Aberystwyth to sit the annual scholarship test.

They will also be given an opportunity to tour campus, to see for themselves the excellent facilities on offer and to meet Departmental staff.

Designated examination centres have also been set up in Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary.

Other students are sitting the examination under supervision in international schools in Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain, Singapore, Sweden and the USA.

Entrance Scholarships can be worth up to £2,000 a year and include an unconditional offer for prospective students.

The grants and offers are awarded based on the results of two 1.5-hour exams set by the University and can be held for any undergraduate degree scheme.

Kylie Evans, Academic Awards Officer at Aberystwyth University, said: “We are pleased to see so many applicants for our entrance exam scholarships this year. The level of interest in our courses reflects our reputation as a research-led university where students can learn and live in an exceptional environment.

“We understand the costs involved in studying for a degree and our range of scholarships, awards and bursaries can help ease the financial burden for students so that they can focus on their studies.”
