Our Academic Excellence International Masters Scholarship supports overseas students from specified countries who are funding their own studies at the University of Essex. We are offering a scholarship worth up to £4,000 if your grades in your first degree meet the required high academic standard. All eligible students who meet the required grades will be entitled to receive this award.
Awards will be made on the basis of grades obtained in your first degree, so all applications for relevant courses will automatically be considered. The scholarship is awarded as a partial tuition fee waiver and is available for students on postgraduate taught Masters courses (excluding MBA).
All our relevant course applications, received by the given deadline, will automatically be considered for this scholarship and a fee discount applied to all who meet our grade requirements.
