Scholarship Programme

General Information

Students seeking financial aid may apply for a scholarship at Immerse Education, which could result in a maximum 100% reduction in programme fees.

We receive a large number of applications for financial aid each year and only a small percentage of students are successful. Two categories of scholarship are available; the first for students aged 13-15 and the second for students aged 16-18.

Eligibility Requirements

Scholarship applicants must be:

  • Aged between 13-18 at the commencement of the selected programme session
  • Available to attend the academic sessions in Cambridge for the duration of the programme
  • Eligible to live and study in the UK for the duration of the programme
  • Attending a non-fee paying school (or attending a fee-paying school whilst receiving a scholarship/grant/bursary/financial assistance)


Eligible students should complete the application form below before the deadline of 23:59 (GMT) on Friday 7th December.

For successful applications, further stages in the application process include a video interview and the submission of an essay – details of the title of this essay will be announced to applicants at the appropriate time.
