African Postgraduate Scholarships

Students who are applying from Africa are eligible for a scholarship for entry onto a full time postgraduate programme.

Scholarship details

Students living in Africa at the time of application and are self-funding their course are eligible for a scholarship of £3000 for entry onto a full time postgraduate programme (both taught and research) in September 2016 and January 2017. The number of scholarships is limited and they are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students receiving discounted tuition fees from partner universities are not eligible.

Application process 

Students who are domiciled in Africa at the time of application and are made an offer to a full-time postgraduate programme will automatically be considered for the scholarship and informed of their eligibility – there is no additional application process for this scholarship.

The number of scholarships is limited. Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis to students who hold an unconditional offer to their Masters programme and have made their £3500 deposit payment towards their fees.
