To apply you will need to:
**If you have an overseas degree, you must be able to demonstrate that it is equivalent to at least a 2:2 UK classification. You may be able to have this verfied by NARIC. We also use an overseas degree comparison chart published by the DfE.
Once qualified and in a teaching post, we expect our scholars to become Master Teachers in a relatively short space of time. Master Teachers take responsibility for championing their subject and assisting with the professional development of other teachers. Our Scholarship application and selection process will help us to identify this potential among our applicants.
Additional eligibility information
The eligibility criteria for these Scholarships match the Department for Education’s criteria for teacher-training bursary funding. In addition to the above, you will also need to meet the training bursary criteria. Click here for further details. We do not pay Scholarships to people receiving government bursaries.
Our Scholarships are not available to those wishing to follow salaried School Direct or Teach First teacher-training schemes. These ITT routes are employment-based schemes and are thus not eligible for Scholarship or bursary funding.
BCS Scholarships do not cover tuition fees, so you may need to check your eligibility to draw down a tuition-fee loan from the Student Loans Company.
You will need to be qualified as a home student in order to pay tuition fees via your training provider. For further details about meeting the criteria for qualifying as a home student, please visit the UKCISA website.
We recommend you to apply for your ITT course as early as possible, so that you can clarify any eligibility queries with your training provider.
