- All applicants must fulfil the academic entry requirements for postgraduate study in the University and Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment. All applicants must have been offered either a conditional or unconditional place on one of the degree programmes listed above by the deadline of 18 November 2021.
- All Faculty scholarships are available for one year full-time or two years part-time (or open/distance learning programmes), as appropriate, leading to a Master’s degree within the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment at Oxford Brookes University. All scholarship applicants must start their degree studies in January 2022 for the 2021-22 academic year.
- The scholarships are open to all applicants from the UK as stated.
- All scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis, and therefore applicants must have, or expect to obtain, a good honours degree (First Class or 2.1 equivalent) from a recognised institution of higher education, or have experience which demonstrates appropriate knowledge and skills at honours degree standard.
- Scholarship applicants who are final year undergraduates must expect to be notified of the result of their degree before 30 November 2021 in order to be considered for a scholarship. International students must meet the English language requirements for their programme.
- Scholarship applicants receiving a partial award of funding from other sources may be awarded a "top-up" scholarship. However, applicants receiving one or more awards from other funding sources that contribute to all of their Master’s degree tuition fees will not be eligible for these scholarships. Eligibility will not be affected by funding towards maintenance or for fees over and above the scholarship amount.
- Scholarship applicants who receive financial awards from other sources of funding which cover all their tuition fees will not be eligible for these scholarships. Eligibility will not be affected if a candidate is receiving funding towards living costs, travel, text books, or other ancillary items or for tuition fees over and above the amount of the Faculty’s actual scholarship award.
Applicants must apply for a scholarship at the same time as, or subsequent to, applying for one of the named Master’s degrees listed in this leaflet:
- Applicants must complete the appropriate Scholarship Application Form (Google Form Link on Scholarship Page.) Applicants should complete the application form once only, indicating all scholarships they wish to apply for – applicants must however check their eligibility and required criteria for each.
- Scholarship applications must be accompanied by a personal statement in the section provided which must clearly identify why the applicant believes they are deserving of the scholarship
- The deadline for receipt of a scholarship application is 11.59pm (23:59 GMT) on Thursday 18 November 2021 for entry to the programme in January 2021.
- The Faculty’s postgraduate scholarships are awards made towards tuition fees only. It is therefore important that applicants clearly identify how they intend to raise the additional funding necessary to cover living costs, travel, textbooks, other ancillary costs and any additional fees, should the tuition fees be higher than the amount of scholarship available.
- Applicants failing to comply with these procedures will not be considered for the scholarship.
- Candidates should be notified if they have been successful by 10 December 2021.
The scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis of academic merit and applications are assessed in relation to:
- academic merit
- how the applicant’s chosen degree programme relates to their career ambitions
- personal development explaining why the applicant believes they are deserving of the scholarship
The Faculty must receive all completed scholarship applications by 11.59pm (23:59 GMT) on 18 November 2021 through the appropriate google form. Successful applicants will be informed by email of the Committee’s decision by 10 December 2021 (TBC). Applicants who are offered a scholarship must indicate by 15 December 2021 whether they wish to accept the offer of a scholarship. Applicants failing to notify the Faculty of their intention to take up the offer of a scholarship by the deadline of 15 December 2021 will forfeit the scholarship.
