Criteria: Academic Merit

This scholarship is for new international (non-EU) students on a full-time, taught, campus-based Masters course inany department within the College of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology, starting in September, October or January.

This scholarship is open to applicants who already have an offer (conditional or unconditional) to study for a Masters degree at the University.

You cannot combine this scholarship with a full scholarship (for tuition fees and living costs) from any other source. You are able to receive only one partial scholarship from the University. If you have a partial scholarship from other sources you will still be considered for the College of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology Postgraduate.

The scholarship is awarded in the form of a reduction in tuition fees.

To apply for the scholarship, please fill in the application form. NB. This is the same form as for the President's Postgraduate Scholarship. You need only submit the form once: you will be considered for the President's Postgraduate Scholarship and, if unsuccessful, automatically considered for the College of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology Postgraduate Scholarship. You cannot receive both.

Please note that annual tuition fees range from £14,105 -£21,810 according to your degree programme. You should allow a minimum of £820-870 per month for living expenses, including accommodation.
