Scholarships Programme


Because not every student is the same, Wadham College of Science (WCS) offers pupils a unique opportunity to achieve distinction and personal excellence through the scholarship programme. Those with the potential to excel in their chosen field and who will benefit from our high-quality tuition, individual attention and support are eligible for our scholarship programme.

The WCS Scholarships Programme offers up to 30 International Students £15,000 scholarship places for Mathematics & Science subjects. A scholarship student should demonstrate a passion for their subjects. The College is keen to see this during the assessment and interview. We carefully assess each student’s application and consider personal statements, participation in school activities, positions of responsibility, hobbies, interests, achievements outside of school, and ambition. We expect our scholars to take on leadership roles within the College and be ambassadors for their chosen subjects.

Candidates will sit an examination paper and be interviewed by the Head of the College or our partners in Hong Kong.

WCS is very fortunate to offer exceptional students on scholarship. However, parents and students need to be aware that we reserve the right to withdraw scholarships at any time if a scholarship student’s:

  • Academic performance is consistently below what we judge as their potential.
  • The attendance level does not meet WCS’s requirements.
  • Behaviour is detrimental to WCS, teachers, staff, students, and themselves.
