Unlock your potential with our Africa Postgraduate Excellence Award, covering a £4,000 contribution towards tuition fees.
We're offering scholarships towards full-time masters tuition fees for high-achieving international students who live in Africa.
Outstanding students applying for masters courses in our Faculty of Engineering are eligible for a scholarship of £6,000. Eligibility for these awards will be assessed by the scholarship panel, so students only need to submit a standard Postgraduate Excellence Award application to be considered for both the higher value award and the £4,000 or £6,000 scholarship.
To apply for this scholarship, you must:
- be domiciled in Africa
- be classed as an overseas student for fee purposes
- hold an offer to start a full-time masters (including MRes) in any subject area at the University of Nottingham UK in September or October 2022
You may also be eligible to apply for our Developing Solutions Masters Scholarship. You can apply and be considered for both of these scholarships but you will only be awarded one.
