English Proficiency Entrance Scholarship

Academic year 2024
Amount Up to $1,500


International students commencing programs at Durham College will be eligible for a variety of scholarships that can help offset the cost of your studies. The awards are open only to new full-time international students in their first program of study at Durham College.


Students must:

  • Submit their application for admission and pay their fees by the deadline indicated on their offer letter.

  • Arrive in Canada and remain enrolled at Durham College past the 10th day of the semester.


  • If a student withdraws from Semester 2 prior to the 10th day of the semester, the scholarship will be revoked and the money awarded will be subtracted from their refund.

  • If a student fails to register for Semester 2 classes prior to the 5th day of the semester, the scholarship will be revoked and the money awarded will be subtracted from their account.

To note:

  • Scholarships are awarded towards second semester fees and will be awarded prior to the deadline for the student’s second semester fee payment when possible, or before registration for semester 2 classes. There have been delays due to COVID-19 causing study permit approval delays.

  • If a student has paid their full year fees in total before receiving the scholarship money, refund cheques will be issued in the month following the start of each semester (October, February and June)

What our students have to say about SI-UK

I utilized the services of SI-UK in Chennai which proved invaluable for me. They provided great assistance throughout my application process, guiding me from evaluating my choices to selecting the university that best matched my profile.

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"The entire team at SI-UK was incredibly supportive. They provided me with a list of universities to consider, and I ultimately chose Aston University. With their assistance, I applied and received an offer along with a £5000 scholarship. I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
