Allocation and Payment of the Scholarship

  • Scholarships will be awarded based on the information held by the Admissions Department. Therefore, students are advised to ensure their records held by Admissions are full and complete, and to send in proof of degree qualifications as soon as possible.
  • All awards will be allocated during September and following this there will be no more awards made in the year.
  • Students will be notified by email whether they have been successful in August 2016.
  • Awards will be allocated against your tuition fees (a fee reduction of up to £4,000) following enrolment.
  • 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 based on application receipt date.
  • 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 have been paid) to the next academic year only.
  • This is not a cash award.

Students are not guaranteed a scholarship offer, regardless of when an application is submitted. You will need to plan well in advance how you are going to pay the tuition fees and support yourself whilst you are studying a masters course.
