Vice Chancellor Scholarship for undergraduate students with exceptional musical, dramatic or sporting talent, UK


Students who have applied for the Vice Chancellor's Scholarship for the 2016/17 intake will be notified whether their application has been successful or not in the last week of March 2016.  

The Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship scheme is open to undergraduate students with exceptional musical, dramatic or sporting talent.

The scheme is open to students applying to any undergraduate course at the University (although, as the scheme is designed to attract students with exceptional abilities outside their normal field of study, a Music student would not be eligible for a music scholarship nor a Drama student for a drama scholarship).

Historically, scholarships in Music and Drama have been valued at £3,000. Scholarships in Sport have been valued at £1,500. No more than 20 scholarships are usually awarded within an academic year. This will be confirmed in due course.

Renewal information

The scholarships will be awarded in the first instance for a period of one year, renewable provided that the following conditions and criteria continue to be met:

  • Successfully audition for the University’s Symphony or Chamber orchestras, or University Singers or Chamber Choir (keyboard players would participate in chamber ensemble playing, approved by the Department of Music) and participate in other opportunities offered from time to time by the Department of Music;
  • Contribute substantially to the output of the University of Bristol Union (UBU) DRAMSOC or Music Theatre Bristol societies
  • Maintaining membership of the Performance Squad.

In addition to the above criteria, students should also satisfactorily progress through to the next year of study on their chosen course.

Please note

  • Scholarships will not normally be available if a year of study has to be repeated for academic reasons.
  • Students repeating a year due to extenuating circumstances will be considered for additional scholarship funding for the repeat year.
  • Scholarships will not normally be paid to students while they are on a year abroad, as they will not be able to satisfy the conditions of the award.
  • An annual report will be requested from award holders to show that they continue to demonstrate the requirements for the award.

Feedback from the Performance Manager and the Department of Music will also be sought throughout the academic year as to whether students are adequately contributing.

In the case of the Drama award holders, feedback will also be requested from the presidents of DRAMSOC, Spotlights and Music Theatre Bristol societies, on how Drama scholars have contributed throughout the year; and the Department of Drama: Theatre, Film, Television will comment on reports written by the student.
