Which scholarship to choose?
Both scholarships are competitive (there will be only one candidate chosen for each scholarship) and both of them will be renewed based on the academic performance for each year of study. If you care very confident about your academic records, you can choose the Vice Chancellor scholarship, as it is said to be the most prestigious one. In terms of eligibility and selection criteria though, the scholarships are almost identical, so your choice might be quite difficult. Because both scholarships are highly selective, you should consider finding other sources of financial help, like scholarships offered by companies or non profit organizations.
Whichever scholarship you apply to, if you have been admitted to an undergraduate degree program at Westminster University, you should be proud of yourself. You will study at an university of historical importance and prestige, founded in 1838, which welcomes students from more than 160 countries.
