Scholarship Requirements:

All taught Masters programmes are eligible for this scholarship, with the exception of programmes in the Birmingham Business School, for which there are separate MSc and MBA scholarships on offer.

In order to be eligible, candidates must meet the following requirements. Candidates must:

  • Have received, and accepted, an offer of admission for a taught Masters degree at the University of Birmingham UK Campus to study in the 2022/23 academic year.
  • Be classed as ‘domiciled’ in one of the eligible countries.
  • Be classed by the University as an overseas fee payer for tuition fee purposes.
  • Start their studies at the University in September/ October 2022 on a course delivered on-campus.
  • Have paid the standard £2,000 Admissions deposit by 30 June 2022.
  • Be academically exceptional and able to provide evidence for this in the scholarship application statement. Candidates should have, or be expecting to achieve, a first class overall grade (at least 70% in the UK system) in a bachelors degree or equivalent.

For example, we consider a UK first class degree to be equivalent to the following grading systems in the US, India, Nigeria and China:

  • 3.5 out of 4.0 and above in the US GPA system.
  • 70% in the Indian grading system
  • 3.5 (out of 4.0) or 4.5 (out of 5.0) or 6.2 (out of 7.0) in the Nigerian grading system
  • 85% grade awarded by a top tier Chinese University, 90% grade awarded by a mid-tier Chinese University

Students in receipt of a full scholarship or sponsorship covering full tuition fees from an alternative internal or external source are not eligible for this scholarship. Those with other partial awards may be able to conjoin this scholarship with other scholarships.

Scholarship Duration and Reward

Approximately 40 scholarships will be awarded with a value of up to £10,000 GBP. This award will be deducted from the total tuition fees owed by each successful scholar.

The deadline to apply for this scholarship is 30 June 2022 at 23:59 (UK time / GMT+1). 

Selection process and awarding

Once the deadline has passed the scholarship applications will be collated and a longlist formed on the basis of the information provided. Selection panels will be formed comprising academic and professional services staff across the five Colleges of the University, which will be tasked with shortlisting and selection to identify those candidates demonstrating the highest academic talent.

Successful candidates will be formally notified via email. Regrettably, owing to the volume of applications received, we will only be contacting those who have been successfully selected. 

The University will make its best endeavours to input the scholarship details onto each student’s CAS record for visa application purposes by the 31 July 2022 (this ‘note’ will be visible for the UKVI but not the student). The scholarship, applied as a discount to tuition fees, will be awarded upon enrolment of the successful candidates in September 2022.
