Felix Scholarships

Scholarships for students from India and other developing countries

What is available

Under the prestigious Felix Scholarships scheme, four Felix Scholarships will be available to well qualified students with Indian citizenship to pursue postgraduate study at the University, starting their programme in September 2017.

One further award, for study at Masters level, will be made to a student from a developing country* who can demonstrate academic excellence and financial need.

What the awards provide

These scholarships cover tuition fees at the international rate and provide a stipend (maintenance grant) to cover living expenses (the current level of which is £13,730). They also provide generous allowances for clothes, books and a return flight home. The awards are available (depending on eligibility) for up to 3 years.

Eligible programmes

Any full-time MPhil/PhD programme or Taught Masters programme.

  • You must demonstrate financial need
  • You must possess at least a first-class honours degree from a University or comparable institution
  • You must not hold a degree from a University outside your home country
  • You must not have studies outside your home country for one year or more
  • Candidates are expected by the Trust to return to work in their home country following their study
