Postgraduate Scholarships Questions


​I do not have my degree results yet, can I apply for the scholarship?

You can apply if you think you are on target for a First Class degree and are considering a full-time masters course at Cardiff Met. Other conditions apply; visit our scholarship webpage at for full terms and conditions.

​Am I guaranteed a scholarship payment if I meet the criteria?

No, there are a limited number of awards available. If we receive more eligible applications than awards available, they will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis in order of application receipt date.

What other sources of funding are available?

You will need to plan well in advance how you are going to pay tuition fees and support yourself whilst you are studying a Masters course. Support and information on a variety of postgraduate funding sources can be found on our Student Finance and Welfare Advisory Service and Fees and Funding webpages.

I am an International student, can I apply?

No, unfortunately the award is only available to UK or EU students. However, Cardiff Met has scholarships specifically for our International students. Details of the awards can be found on our International webpage

​What happens to my scholarship if I have to withdraw or defer my studies?

Students awarded the scholarship but who defer or suspend their studies after beginning the course may defer the remaining scholarship award (i.e. what is remaining once any fees for that year have been paid) to the next academic year only. Students who withdraw completely will forfeit any remaining scholarship funding and will not be eligible to re-apply in the future.

Yes, you will no longer be eligible for the scholarship if you change to a part-time course.
