Africa Postgraduate Excellence Award

£4,000 tuition fee scholarship for masters students who live in Africa

Application deadline: Friday 21 May 2021

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.

Eligibility

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 2021

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 not be awarded both.

If you are domiciled in an eligible country but have a different nationality, you may not see this scholarship displayed in MyNottingham. In this case, email the scholarships team on scholarship-assistant@nottingham.ac.uk to enable your application. You should apply for our regional excellence awards based on your country of domicile rather than your nationality – unless you are studying in the UK, in which case you should apply for the UK International Postgraduate Excellence Award.

How to apply

You must apply for and receive an offer to study a full-time masters (including MRes) at the University of Nottingham before applying for this scholarship. Search for courses and find out how to apply.

If you have an offer for a taught masters course, you can apply through the scholarships section of our application system, MyNottingham.

If you have an offer for an MRes course, email the scholarships team on scholarship-assistant@nottingham.ac.uk for instructions on how to apply.

Applications close at midnight (UK time) on Friday 21 May 2021.

Application criteria

You will need to answer questions about your achievements, study plans and reasons for choosing to study at the University of Nottingham. Make sure you have enough time to prepare strong answers. We will assess your responses and academic merit when making scholarship decisions.

Scholarship requirements

Scholarships will only be awarded to students who accept their offer to study with us. You do not need to respond to your offer before applying for this scholarship. Scholarships will be awarded after assessing all scholarship applications. We will contact you in early July 2021 to confirm the outcome of your application.

If you are awarded this scholarship, it will be deducted from the tuition fees charged to you as a student at the University of Nottingham. We will not pay tuition fee scholarships to you directly.

This award cannot be combined with another University of Nottingham regional scholarship or an International Sporting Excellence Award. However, you may also be able to receive a subject scholarship from your academic school, a sports scholarship package, or an external scholarship from your country, where the combined total does not exceed 100% of tuition fees. This could include, for example, an award from Nottingham University Business School and/or the government or other funding body in your country.
