About these scholarships
For entry in academic year 2017/18, there are 30 University of Brighton international scholarships available to new, full-time international postgraduate taught-degree students.
The scholarship is worth a £5,000 reduction in the cost of your tuition fees for each year of your course.
Applications for 2017 entry are open between 1 November 2016 – 31 July 2017.
The criteria for awarding University of Brighton international scholarships are primarily merit-based. Merit does not necessarily have to mean academic merit but could also be interpreted to include outstanding performance in a variety of spheres.
The strongest candidates will be those demonstrating a mixture of academic merit (including English language ability) and other merit or outstanding achievement in a particular field of activity.
You will also need to show that you have sufficient funds to pay the remainder of the fees.
Who is eligible
To be eligible to apply for a scholarship you must be a new, full-time, international fee-status student who holds an offer for a postgraduate taught degree with a minimum course duration of one year.
You must have applied for the course of your choice at the University of Brighton, and have been offered a place on that course for 2017 entry.
Students studying graduate diplomas, pre-masters programmes, or equivalent, at University of Brighton partner colleges or those on PG Cert and PG Dip courses (excluding OSPAP, Law CPE PGDip and Accounting PGDip) are not eligible for these scholarships.
These scholarships are not open to students who are fully sponsored.
Existing international students are also not eligible unless starting a new postgraduate programme.
How to apply
For the 2017 academic year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your University of Brighton student number in the subject line, and we will send you a scholarship application pack.
The application form can then be returned electronically to the same email address or sent by post to the address indicated on the scholarship application form. Please note application forms will not be sent to students who do not have an offer of a full-time place with us.
Deadline for application
There are four application deadlines throughout the year: 31 January, 31 March, 31 May, and 31 July 2017. Early applications will be processed in line with these dates and awards made in the month following each deadline, with final awards coming at the end of August. Decisions will be made by an awards committee coordinated by the International Office and Academic Services, and decisions about scholarship awards will be communicated to applicants approximately two weeks after those dates.
You are advised to apply as early as possible after you have received our offer, as the number of scholarships is limited.
Please note that any accompanying documentation will not be returned and that the Scholarship Award Committee's decision is final.
