Student Profile

Abraham Hansen

With dreams of running his own restaurant one day, Abraham chose UCB as “one of the best universities in Europe” for training for a career in the hospitality industry.

“I chose this course because I enjoy working in the hospitality industry and serving people, and UCB has outstanding facilities and a personal touch to courses,” he said.

“One of the best parts of the course is the learning trips you get to take part in to support the programme, which are all included in your fees.”

Currently working with Staycity Aparthotels in the heart of Birmingham, Abraham’s mission is to advance up the career ladder and be the best in his field by five years’ time.

“My advice to new students would be to focus on your course and make yourself accessible to all the extra services that are offered to students at USB,” he said. “For example, language courses are offered for free at the University, a great added benefit.

“I would also advise students to choose UCB for its invaluable CV research department, helping students put together their CVs in a way that will attract employers looking to hire or recruit. @HIRED also helps students to get work, which is extremely useful.”


These scholarships are open to applicants from any country. Applicants must demonstrate excellence in academic achievement.
The award of an Academic Excellence Scholarship is subject to any necessary visa clearance by the UK immigration authorities. An offer of an Academic Excellence Scholarship will be made to successful applicants and this offer may be used where necessary as evidence to the UK authorities of certain costs being met. However if a visa is not permitted the Scholarship will be withdrawn and there is no automatic reconsideration at any future point.

Value of Scholarship(s)

Up to £1000 off the cost of tuition fees, for one year only


Applicants must have accepted an offer of a place on a full-time taught programme at UCB and the chosen programme should be of at least one year's duration and normally lead to an academic award at Higher Education level. Applicants must not previously have been enrolled on the programme concerned, previously been enrolled on a FdA programme at the University in the same subject area (if entering the final year of a first degree programme) or have previously received a scholarship from the University.

Application Procedure

Applicants must complete the standard application form. Ensure that the category of scholarship/fee waiver applied for is clearly noted and provide full documentary evidence of academic excellence with the application. Evidence of Academic Excellence may include outstanding achievements in study (substantially in excess of that normally expected of students), support for an institution (for example through outstanding levels of commitment to supporting or working with fellow students) or the completion of a highly regarded research activity.
