Master's Excellence Scholarships

We are pleased to announce that the Taught Master's Excellence Scholarship Scheme for 2018/19 entry has been confirmed.

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 2018.

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

The deadlines for applications for the scholarships for 2018/19 have now been set as follows, and we'll update this page in late November to confirm that we are open for applications. You can register your interest and we will email you to inform you as soon as we are applications open.
