Postgraduate Scholarships

Don't let fees stand in the way of your studies...we have a number of scholarships for students on the MSc Business programmes, providing a financial contribution towards your tuition fees.

MSc Business Scholarships

Birmingham Business School offers a number of scholarships against tuition fees, for students on the MSc Business programmes to reward outstanding academic achievement. These awards are based on merit and will be selected by a panel of representatives from the Business School.

Please note that applications for the 2016/17 academic year are now closed and awards for the 2017/18 academic year are yet to be confirmed. Please visit this webpage later in the year for further information once it is available.

All eligible applicants who are offered a place on one of the 12 month MSc Business programmes listed above will be considered for the MSc Business Scholarships, provided:

  • You have been made a conditional or unconditional offer of study and submit your completed application before the deadline (to be confirmed for 2017/18)

Unfortunately we are unable to contact all applicants with notification of results or provide feedback on individual applications due to the volume of applications and interest that we receive.
