Academic Excellence Scholarship (AES) – BA programmes

Vesalius College will award Academic Excellence Scholarships to students who have outstanding academic records in secondary school and whose extra-curricular achievements show evidence of leadership in today’s global society. Other factors include one letter of recommendation from their secondary school and, in certain cases, standardised test scores.

The College’s merit-based financial assistance can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester. These scholarships will be renewed if the student maintains superior academic performance during each semester of their 3-year Bachelor programme. The scholarship will be directly applied to the student’s tuition fees.


  • Prospective students must possess outstanding academic records and personal integrity, as demonstrated by grades, extra-curricular activities, standardised test scores (such as TOEFL, SAT) and one letter of recommendation.
  • Prospective students must have been accepted into a Vesalius College Bachelor Programme as a full-time, first-year/freshman student and must submit a separate application form for the Academic Excellence Scholarship (click here).
  • Transfer students are not eligible for the Vesalius Academic Excellence Scholarship.
  • The Academic Excellence scholarship can be awarded to students who enrol in the Fall semester (August) and in the Spring semester (January).
  • There is a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) required to obtain a scholarship. Vesalius College will also take motivation and extra-curricular activities into consideration. Evidently, better scores and grades, combined with strong motivation and participation in extra-curricular activities will improve one’s chances of acquiring a scholarship.
  • There are no limitations with regards to citizenship & residency. All applicants will be treated fairly and equally.
  • The Scholarships may be renewed for all three years of the undergraduate programme. For renewal, a minimum GPA must be maintained.
  • Academic Excellence Scholarships are administered via the Admissions Office.
