In celebration of the University’s proud status as a partner sponsor of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, we are offering an unprecedented Masters scholarship for international students, to ensure that concerns about finance do not present a barrier to students from Commonwealth countries considering study at the University.
With a value of £3,000 per scholarship, this award is available to all international students from countries participating in the Commonwealth Games 2022, who are seeking to study a taught Master’s degree at Birmingham in the 2021/22 academic year.
Eligible scholars who successfully meet the criteria will have this amount deducted from their total tuition fees owed.
In order to be eligible, candidates must meet the following requirements. You must:
- Have applied for, and receive an offer of admission for, a taught Masters degree at the University of Birmingham UK campus, to study in the 2021/22 academic year.
- Be classed as ‘domiciled’ in one of the Commonwealth countries. Please see the list below.
- Be classed by the University as an overseas fee payer for tuition fee purposes.
- Start your studies at the University in September/ October 2021 on a course delivered on-campus.
This scholarship will be automatically offered to applicants who meet the criteria outlined above.
To accept the scholarship you will need to formally accept the offer you receive from the University’s Admissions Office, by the deadline stated on your offer. You can do this via the postgraduate portal.
To fully secure the scholarship, you will also be required to pay the standard £2,000 (GBP) admissions deposit by the deadline set by the Admissions Office.
Please be aware that the University reserves the right to cease the scholarship offer to new applicants at any time.
Once an offer for admissions is made, candidates must meet the deadlines set by the Admissions Office (and stated in the offer letter) to ‘accept’ their offer and pay a deposit – this will simultaneously secure both the place on the Master’s degree programme and also this scholarship.
Deadline: July 7, 2021
