Mike Roden Scholarships

Our Mike Roden Scholarships provide support for students progressing to degree studies at the University of Birmingham

These Scholarships offer a transformational opportunity, only available to Sixth Form students at the University of Birmingham School.

Ten scholarships will be awarded annually to students in Year 13 who go on to study for a degree at the University of Birmingham. The scholarships are worth £5,000 per year to students who chose to follow a STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) programme of study and £1,500 per year to students who choose any other course. There will be four STEMM scholarships available and six non-STEMM scholarships.

The Scholarships are named in honour of the School’s founding Principal Michael Roden.

Mr Roden retired in 2018, but the Scholarships ensure that his legacy will continue, as the awards which bear his name carry the same sentiment as the work he did in founding the School. The Scholarships will ensure that students do not have to worry about the financial constraints of day-to-day life at University, and will free the recipients from these worries, allowing them to concentrate on their studies, and making the most of their time at University. The School and the University hope that the Scholarships will encourage more students to aim high, apply to University, and achieve their true potential as they begin their life after School.

I was the first in our family to go University and, inspired by my own dedicated teachers, I have enjoyed a long career in some of the country’s best schools. I want students of University of Birmingham School to have access to the same opportunities I was fortunate enough to enjoy.

Purposefully designed with your
career in mind.
