We are proud to offer 100 prestigious Masters scholarships to attract the most talented students to study at Sussex.
Scholarships are available for first-class students joining eligible Masters courses at the University of Sussex (excluding the Brighton and Sussex Medical School and IDS). The Scholarships are available only for the first year of postgraduate studies in the case of two year full-time Masters degrees and 1+3 courses.
We welcome applications from students who have achieved a first-class honours degree from a UK university and who are offered a full-time place on an eligible Masters course at Sussex. This includes previous students from the University of Sussex. We also welcome applicants from final year students currently studying at UK universities, who have not yet graduated.
There are 100 scholarships available each worth £3,000 to help towards tuition fees. Scholarships will be allocated in separate rounds during 2015 until the final scholarships are awarded in August (see below for more details).

• You must have applied for your chosen full-time Masters course by 1 August
• You must accept and meet any conditions of your offer.

University of Sussex students graduating with a first-class degree in 2015 are not eligible for this award but instead are eligible for the Sussex Graduate Scholarship.
In addition, masters students funded by the research councils (e.g. those receiving ESRC 1+3 funding) are not eligible.
To be considered for a scholarship you should apply online for an eligible full-time Masters course between 1 October 2014 and 1 August 2015 via the University's postgraduate application system.
Complete the Chancellor's Masters Scholarship application form by 1 August.
We encourage you to apply as early as possiblle after 1 October as Scholarships will be allocated in rounds from 2015 onwards.
Please note: if you are still studying for your degree, you do not need to wait for your final classification before applying. Applications will be considered on the strength of current performance and, if successful, the award of the scholarship can be made conditional upon you achieving a first-class undergraduate honours degree later in the summer.
Selection for a scholarship
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of previous or current academic performance and future potential. The selectors will pay careful attention to the information you provide in the Scholarship application form.
The application deadline is 1st August 2015.
Scholarships will be allocated in a number of separate rounds during 2015 (precise timetable to be confirmed).
Each round will award a proportion of the scholarships available, with successful applicants notified after each round. If you are not successful in the initial round, but meet the eligibility criteria, you will automatically be re-considered in the following allocation, alongside any new applications. The final scholarships will be awarded in August, with all outcomes notified by Monday 8 September.
If you accept a Chancellor's Masters Scholarship you will be required to undertake occasional promotional or support duties for the University of Sussex at times agreed between yourself and the University (e.g. providing text for the prospectus or web page). Schools of study may have specific duties they wish you to assist with.
