The Access to Birmingham (A2B) Postgraduate Scholarships will be available to students:
- Domiciled in the UK or EU
Students recorded as Home or EU for fee-status purposes are eligible, provided that they meet the other eligibility criteria.
- Studying full time or part time for a maximum of two years
A standard taught Masters course lasts one year if taken on a full-time basis, or two years if taken part time. Full-time courses that last two years are eligible. Any course that lasts longer than two years is not eligible for the funding.
- Undertaking a Masters course in any subject (excluding Government-funded programmes such as Nursing, Teacher Training and Social Work)
All taught Masters courses that are not already part funded by the Government are eligible for the awards.
Who have previously participated in the University of Birmingham Access to Birmingham Scheme (A2B), Realising Opportunities or a similar undergraduate outreach or widening participation programme at another University
Awards will then be allocated on the basis of merit – simply meeting the criteria will not guarantee that your application is successful.
