Postgradute scholarships for students from Botswana

College of Science and Engineering Postgraduate Scholarship

As a permanent resident of Botswana, you can receive up to 28% discount on the tuition fee for a full-time, taught postgraduate (Masters) laboratory-based degree in a science or engineering subject (in one of these Departments: Chemistry, Geography, Engineering, Informatics, Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy).

  • If you meet our entry requirements, you will be offered our entry scholarship.
  • If you exceed our entry requirements, you may be offered our merit scholarship. 

2016-17 tuition fee (for laboratory-based courses)

  • Standard international fee: £17,465
  • Fee with entry scholarship: £13,623
  • Fee with merit scholarship: £12,575

This is the fee for the whole course. This enhanced discount is offered instead of the 10% discount which constitutes the regular College of Science and Engineering Postgraduate Scholarship.

Other courses

For non-lab-based courses, you will automatically receive a 10% discount on your tuition fee if you meet or exceed the academic conditions of your offer.


  • You must be classified as an international (non-EU) student for fee purposes.
  • The fee discount will be calculated on the basis of the standard tuition fee, excluding components for ‘with industry’ degrees.
  • In accordance with scholarship guidelines, students are allowed to hold only one University of Leicester scholarship, awarded either centrally or by a department. If you are awarded more than one scholarship, you will therefore receive only the higher value award.
  • The scholarship is only valid for entry in September 2016.
  • If you currently have a conditional offer of a place at the University, you will still need to fulfil any conditions stated on your offer letter.
