Master's Excellence Scholarship

Applications to the Taught Masters Excellence Scholarship Scheme for 2017/18 entry have now closed.

Applications to the scholarship for 2018/19 entry will be open later in 2017. Further information will be displayed on this page as soon as it is available.

If you're applying for a UK Government postgraduate loan then you are still eligible to apply for a Master’s Excellence Scholarship.

We are committed to investing up to 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 master's programme in September 2017.

The Scholarships are each worth £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.”

Professor Colin Riordan, Vice-Chancellor
