Al Twar Falcon Scholarship for Academic Excellence


Star Al Twar provides students with bespoke International Learning Opportunities that ensure students have the academic knowledge, skills, and competencies to succeed at and attend their university of choice.  

The Star Al Twar Scholarship Programme is designed to recognise and foster excellence in the classroom and beyond. Our scholarship program aims to attract and support talented students who show a passion for, and potential in, their chosen field.

Our bespoke programme aligns with our core values of happiness, well-being and a love of learning, enabling our young people to explore their interests and talents, and harness exceptional potential in areas of strength.

Pupils enrolled on our scholarship programme will be given reduced fees of up to 80%, so that families may re-invest this saving into specialist tuition or support in the area that they excel.

Scholarship recipients will also receive an enhanced enrichment programme. An indicative list is detailed below:

  1. Bespoke, ‘invitation-only’ access to visits, workshops, and lectures.
  2. An allocated learning mentor, and regular mentor meetings.
  3. Access to enhanced skill development workshops.
  4. Regular target reviews with relevant senior staff

To apply for a Falcon scholarship, a student must:

  1. Have a certificate of completion/release from their current school along with a letter of good conduct.

  • CAT4 SAS Score of 120 or higher*
  • GLPT - Stanine 8 or above in core subjects (English, Maths and Science). Or,
  • GCSE - Minimum of, or predicted, Grade 7, 8 or 9 (grade A or A*) in English, Maths and Science. 

*Where a student is entering Dubai without a CAT 4 or GLPT assessment, this will be completed as part of the scholarship assessment process.
