Application criteria

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

Please note that there is a strict word count limit for all questions, which is outlined at the end of each question. The system does not automatically limit this, so you would be encouraged to check your application before you submit. Any responses submitted that exceed the outlined word count may not be reviewed.

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. This scholarship is not available to students who have already started their course.

If you are awarded this scholarship, we will deduct it from the tuition fees charged to you during your masters degree course, with the scholarship amount split between your tuition fee instalments. The scholarship will not be paid to you directly.

Very occasionally students may be offered a Regional Scholarship alongside a scholarship from their Academic School, or a Sporting award. To maximise the reach of University's Scholarships offering, we aim not to double award and the highest value award will take precedence. In exceptional cases this may be possible where the combined total does not exceed 100% of tuition fees.
