Masters Excellence Scholarships 2015 (Pathway to PhD)

Cardiff University is offering students applying to the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences a £3k scholarship to offset against fees to undertake a taught master’s degree in one of its participating School programmes.

Among the criteria that will be used to judge applications will be the potential for possible continuation to doctoral level study at a later stage. It is recognised, however, that in making this application there is not a commitment to undertake further study, or to undertake further studies at Cardiff University. Similarly, in making an award, Cardiff University is not committing to making an offer for further study or for a further award.
