This scholarship is not available for Undergraduate and Postgraduate Research courses.
The scholarship will act as a tuition fee discount to be applied at the point of registration.
Applicants do not need to apply for the Leicester Postgraduate Progression Scholarship the award will automatically be confirmed for eligible students.
Maximum scholarship duration: in recognition of the fact that tuition fee payment is/may be spread over a number of academic years, the percentage discount offered at registration for postgraduate taught degree programmes will remain constant for a maximum of:
One year for a full-time MA or MSc, or three years part-time (180 credits)
- One year for a full-time PG Dip, or two years part-time (120 credits)
- One year for a full-time or part-time PG Cert (60 credits)
The scholarship is valid for all intakes within the 2023/24 academic session – scholarships cannot normally be deferred by the applicant to a subsequent academic year, unless their course offer has been deferred to an alternative year of entry.
Applicants must have previously studied and successfully completed a degree at either the DMU Leicester campus or through DMU’s transnational education partner.
Students in receipt of the scholarship will not be eligible for any other University of Leicester scholarship or award.
Students who actively apply for and are successfully awarded another scholarship, that award will supersede the entitlement to any automatically awarded scholarship
No cash alternatives will be offered and the scholarship cannot be transferred to a nominated recipient.
Scholarships are only available to students paying all their own fees (partially sponsored students will not be eligible).
Students in receipt of a Postgraduate Master’s Loan will still be eligible.
Where a student terminates or interrupts their studies, prior to the completion of their postgraduate taught course, the net tuition fee will be calculated based on the last date of attendance on the basis of a twelve month course. A partial month is treated as a full month and after seven months, the full tuition fee will be charged. Students going into suspense will be calculated in the same way and charged in the same way on return.
Scholarships will be honoured for course transfers within the University of Leicester (providing the transfer is to an eligible course).
Students eligible for more than one award will automatically be awarded the one of greater financial value.
The University of Leicester reserves the right to cancel any scholarship which has been claimed fraudulently and to apply the full tuition fee.
Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the University.
The University of Leicester reserves the right to revise, review or withdraw any of the scholarships at any time without prior notice.
