Wellington College firmly believes that every talented child should be able to receive a College education and all the many benefits and opportunities that come with it. To ensure that the most talented children come to the College and that tuition fees are no obstacle to receiving such an education, we have introduced the Wellington Scholarship and Bursary Programme.

Scholarships / Bursaries


2018 External Scholarship Programme

This year the College will offer a range of external scholarships for prospective students joining our IGCSE and A level programmes for the 2018/19 academic year.


All external candidates are welcome to apply and will be awarded scholarships based upon their academic prowess, potential, commitment and values. Elite athletes and musicians are also invited to apply for a special range of awards for those with particular talents. The candidate must apply for enrollment at the College to be eligible for the Scholarship Programme.


If successful, awards of between 25%-100% of the tuition fees will be made by the Scholarship panel . These will be subject to an annual review, but under normal circumstances, the award is valid for the duration of the candidate’s time in school.

How to Apply

New student candidates should first complete the scholarship enquiry form to obtain the necessary College and scholarship application forms from the Admissions Office.

The College offers a range of scholarship awards for Senior School pupils for excellence in music, sport, and academic achievement each year. Pupils must have shown outstanding achievements in these areas overall.


Current pupils of the College are eligible to apply and are available to all Year 7-13 pupils who have shown an enduring dedication and academic commitment to the College.

Scholarship Awards: The value of each scholarship will be dependent on the application, assessment and interview by the Scholarship panel. Awards can be in the form of a reduction of the annual tuition fees or a non-monetary award. All successful applicants will be entitled to call themselves Scholars of Wellington College International Tianjin.

Pupils should visit the College Office to obtain all necessary scholarship application forms.

Evaluations will commence in May 2018

Interview for Candidates: Sunday May 27th 2018


A series of bursaries are available for applicants to the College, including those who also apply for the various scholarships. Bursaries are awarded where there is an obvious need to supplement the tuition fees for the particular year group. All applications are means-tested. Applying for a Bursary can be, but need not be, a daunting process, so we have set out for you answers to our most frequently asked questions, by clicking on the link below.

A Bursary is simply the name we give to an award which reduces the cost to you of sending your child to the College in Tianjin. Bursaries are awarded purely on the basis of financial need.
While the award of a College Scholarship represents a tuition fee discount, it is also seen as a significant achievement by staff and students alike, and additional privileges and responsibilities are afforded to the recipients.
Bursaries are open to anybody whose child is offered a place or a Scholarship at the College, and who can demonstrate that the tuition fees are more than they can afford. However, there is a limited Bursary fund and it is therefore best to apply as early as possible.
The principal difference between the two is that a Scholarship is awarded based on your child demonstrating excellence in a particular area of College life. A Bursary is simply linked to the ability to pay and, while reviewed annually, will seek to mirror changes in a parent’s financial position.
A Bursary is means-tested to ensure that children who are keen to come to the College and are committed to learning, are not excluded simply because their parents cannot afford the tuition fees.
The College calculates the level of assistance it can offer, but it would be normal for parents to do their own calculations as well. Assuming we both work from the same information and bearing in mind a basic test of affordability, it is unlikely we will come up with calculations which differ significantly.
Bursary awards are confidential and no one knows who is in receipt of a Bursary, unless the parents have chosen to share that information with the child.
