These were the questions asked during the University of Birmingham Dubai Virtual Q&A Session – March live event.
Kareem Halayka asked:

I have already applied and got an offer but I think there was no place for me to enter my predicted grades in the application form, so what can I do now to get an invite? Because I’m aiming to get the highest grades possible.

Naomi replied:

Hi Kareem,

The scholarship panel will consider the documentation you uploaded to the admissions portal when applying for your degree programme. If you wanted to supply additional documents, please email

Many thanks


Kareem Halayka asked:

On which bases do you invite applicants to the Chancellor’s Full Scholarship Award if they haven’t completed their high school yet?

Naomi Britton replied:

Hello Kareem,

Thank you for your question, applicants who have applied for the Chancellor’s Academic Merit Scholarship and exhibit academic excellence are invited to apply for the Chancellor’s Full Scholarship. If you have not received your final grades, you can submit your predicted grades in your application form.

Best of luck!
