What is the TEP Scholarship Programme?

The Sister School Partnership programme creates bilaterally beneficial links between UK and Chinese schools. The programme consists of immersive student exchanges, pedagogy exchanges, participation in joint projects and curriculum enrichment. At True Education Partnerships, we strongly believe in what we do and the benefits it brings to young people in the UK and China. We’re so passionate about our mission that we’ve started our very own Scholarship Programme for students that wouldn’t otherwise be able to experience our life-changing programmes in China.

Does your school qualify to offer students a scholarship?

– Does your school have gifted students from disadvantaged backgrounds who would love to travel to China with the rest of their school friends?

– Do they deserve the opportunity to experience a genuinely life-changing programme that could change the future direction of their lives?

– Would you like your school governors/SLT to know that our programmes have the potential to be inclusive irrelevant of your student’s financial background?

How many scholarships are available?

We’re offering five students from each UK region the opportunity to travel for free on their school’s trip to China as part of the Sister School Partnership programme. To apply for the scholarship, we ask that the scholar’s school to submit an application at the bottom of this page or through the Scholarship Pack by email. All applications will then be assessed by the team at True Education Partnerships and the lucky scholars will be notified.
