Application criteria and Scholarship details
To qualify for a scholarship an applicant (home or EU) will need to fulfil all of the following criteria.
Successful applicants must:
* Ensure that their application reaches the Student Money Service by the advertised deadline. Applicants and not the University (or its staff) are entirely responsible for meeting this element of the criteria.
* Gain a first class honours degree or an upper second class honours degree or equivalent qualification (students with qualifications gained from outside the UK will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis)
* Be offered a place on an eligible taught masters course, accept this offer and enrol on the course within the appropriate timeframe.
