Application process

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 document:

  • Applicants must complete the appropriate Application Form. 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.

    • The deadline for receipt of a scholarship application is 11.59pm (23:59 GMT) on Monday 5 June 2023 for entry to the programme in September 2023.
  • 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.
