The Dean's Scholarships for Academic and Clinical Excellence, City University London
At City University London we believe that exceptional academic and clinical performance should be recognised and rewarded. The School of Health Sciences at City is offering several scholarships of £2,500 to UK, EU and International postgraduate students with a profile of academic and clinical excellence starting one of our MSc Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care courses at City in the October or January intake. The award will be granted strictly on merit after a shortlist and selection process. The decisions will be made by a selection panel and will be final.
The Scholarship amount is a total of £2,500 for both full-time and part-time students and several scholarships will be awarded in total at the start of the first year of the course. The total amount will be waived off the fee at the start of the academic year for full-time students, and half of the amount will be waived off the fee for part-time students in the first and second years of study.
To qualify for The Dean's Scholarship, you must:
- be a self-funded student and not in receipt of any other scholarships;
- be a full or part time student;
- be in your first year of postgraduate study for the October or January intake on any one of the routes of the MSc Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care course;
- demonstrate academic and clinical excellence and a commitment to advancing your clinical and academic skills.
