Scholarships for taught postgraduates
A scholarship for one of the MSc Programmes is a financial award from the University or Department. The main criterion for awarding a scholarship is academic merit. Scholarships, unlike loans, do not have to be re-paid.
Departmental Scholarships/Academic Merit Awards
We offer these scholarships to overseas students (i.e. students who are not classified by the university as home or EU for fee purposes). The award is based on previous academic achievements.There is no formal application process, as all applicants will be automatically considered for these scholarships.
The scholarship amount varies depending on previous qualifications gained and the achieved grades. In order to be considered applicants must have submitted their MSc application by 31 August (for intended September entry) and 30 November (for intended January start).
