🏛 Bachelors



Are you planning to sit the IELTS test in order to further your studies? With the British Council-IELTS Award you could win up to £10,000 to help cover the cost of your tuition fees!

Creating opportunities that can change lives, we established the British Council-IELTS Award in order to assist high calibre individuals who have a strong motivation to develop their career and who can demonstrate that they have the potential to contribute to society with their studies.

The award will enable successful applicants to study at an undergraduate or postgraduate level at an institution of higher education in Germany or abroad, in an English taught program that accepts IELTS as part of its admission requirements. 


Eligibility



To be eligible to apply for the IELTS Award 2017 you must:
  • be aged 18 years or over on 30 June 2017
  • have taken an IELTS test at a British Council centre in Germany and received an official Test Report Form (TRF) dated between 6 June 2016 and 2 June 2017 issued by the British Council in Germany
  • have achieved a minimum overall band score of 6.5, plus a minimum score of 6.5 in each of the four components of the IELTS test
  • be planning to enrol in the 2017–18 academic year (i.e. starting August 2017 onwards) on a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate programme taught in English at a university or other institution of higher education in Germany or abroad, which accepts IELTS as part of its admission requirements (check the official recognition list). The tuition fees of the programme of choice are a minimum of £3,000 for one academic year. 
  • be able to provide an acceptance letter from the relevant educational organisation by 30 June 2017 at the latest.


Benefits


The British Council-IELTS Award award is worth from a minimum of £3,000 up to a maximum of £10,000 depending on the tuition fees of the institution attended by the winner and will go towards the cost of tuition fees of the individual's selected course. The award applies only to courses in the 2017-18 academic year (i.e. starting August 2017 onwards) and will be paid directly to the institution.

If tuition fees of the successful candidate are below the maximum individual award fund of £10,000, remaining funds may be allocated to support other runners-up.

The successful applicant will demonstrate a commitment to networking within the IELTS community and sharing their experience with other IELTS candidates.

Application


Applicants can submit their application by completing the following steps:
  • Take an IELTS test at a British Council authorised centre in Germany and receive an official Test Report Form (TRF) dated between 6 June 2016 and 2 June 2017 issued by the British Council in Germany.
