£10,000 scholarships for Masters study at the University of Birmingham

For 2015 entry the University has two brand new schemes which offer £10,000 scholarships for Masters students. These scholarships have been jointly funded by the British Government; the allocation of the awards, which is the fourth highest in the UK, further cements Birmingham’s place amongst the very best higher education institutions for postgraduate study.

The first of these schemes, the Birmingham Masters Scholarship scheme is focused specifically on students from under-represented groups, who are:

  • Domiciled in the UK or EU
  • Progressing from an undergraduate course for which they were charged the higher tuition fee (applicable since 2012–13)
  • Studying full-time or part-time for a maximum of two years
  • Undertaking a Masters course in an eligible subject – which includes all programmes across the College ofArts and Law

The second scheme, the Birmingham Masters Subject Scholarship scheme, is focused specifically on particular subject areas. In the College of Arts and Law, these are:

Like the Birmingham Masters scholarships, these awards are available for UK/EU students, and for those who are progressing from a course which charged the higher tuition fee. They are also available for full- or part-time study. However, although it is a University priority to strive to enrol under-represented students to these programmes, that is not a specific condition for the subject-specific awards.

You can find out more about these schemes and our postgraduate programmes at the University’s Postgraduate Open Day on Wednesday 18 March 2015.

Applications for both schemes close at 23.59pm on Tuesday 31 March 2015.
