Advice about Your Application

To increase your chances of winning a BUV scholarship, we can offer the following guidelines and advice:


The minimum academic requirement for scholarship applicants is that their grade 12 GPA is a minimum of 7.5. Normally, scholarship winners will get a GPA of above 8.0.


Although it’s not required at the time of application, candidates should achieve a minimum level of English equivalent to IELTS 6.0. Firstly, this helps you write a more impressive personal statement. Secondly, if you are shortlisted for the interview round, you will have an interview in English with the Scholarship Committee. Most candidates will have a high IELTS or TOEFL score. The higher your English ability is, the bigger the advantage you have in applying for a scholarship.


Besides studying, BUV students are always encouraged to take part in social activities. As a result, the Scholarship Committee will select candidates not only based on their academic performance, but also on their participation in activities outside of school hours. This may include volunteering, charity work, event hosting, teaching, interpreting for foreign tourists, or other similar activities. If you have a participation certificate, you should include it in your scholarship application.

If you held a leadership position in your group or club, you should also highlight this in your Personal Statement, with reference to any leadership skills you have developed along the way.


To have a good Personal Statement, you need to conduct research about the programme you want to study at BUV, and focus on answering the following questions:

  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  • Describe your extracurricular activities (if any)
  • What is your chosen programme at BUV? Why study that course?
  • What does this scholarship mean to you?
  • If you win this scholarship, how will you support and contribute to BUV?
  • Why do you deserve this scholarship?

The ideal length should be less than 1,000 words.

Note: The questions above are for reference only; candidates are free to write in any way they like.
