Postgraduate Taught Scholarships 2014-15

Cardiff University is pleased to announce that the Postgraduate Taught Scholarship Scheme for entry 2014/15 has been confirmed.

Cardiff University has committed to invest a total of £500,000 in this high value competitive scholarship scheme to support Home and EU students who are planning to start an eligible full-time master programme in September 2014.

The Scholarships are each worth a minimum of £3,000 and will be awarded in the form of a tuition fee discount.

This scholarship package will give high-calibre students the opportunity to study at a world-leading, research-intensive university and help ease the associated financial burdens.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Colin Riordan

Scholarships will be awarded based on academic excellence.

Deadline to apply for the scholarship and a masters' programme: Friday, 1st August, 2014, 17.00 (GMT)

‘Home’ and ‘EU’ students only (as classified for fee paying purposes, tuition fee status is determined after submitting an application to study) who are accepted on to an eligible full-time postgraduate taught programme leading to a master's degree, and with a firm focus on academic excellence.

Applicants from countries outside the European Union are also advised to consult our Study at Cardiff | International pages.

The Scholarships are each worth a minimum of £3,000 and will be awarded in the form of a tuition fee discount. Students who are successful in gaining a scholarship will have this amount deducted from their tuition fees.

The Postgraduate Taught Scholarships are available for a maximum of one academic year. Students studying a course which lasts longer than one year will not receive any further funding for additional years.

The Postgraduate Taught Scholarship application form will be made available on the SIMS Online Applicant Portal to all Home and EU students who have applied to an eligible full-time postgraduate taught programme leading to a masters' degree. The application form will remain on the Online Applicant Portal until the scholarship application deadline of Friday 1st August 2014, 17.00 (GMT).

Please see the Guidance Notes (available with the application form in the SIMS Online Applicant Portal) for further information. Only one application form will be accepted for the Postgraduate Taught Scholarships per student.

The deadline to submit an application for the Postgraduate Taught Scholarships is

17.00 (GMT) Friday 1st August 2014
