Type of Funding
The University of Sussex is making available 25 Chancellor’s International Scholarships for international (non-UK/EU) students, with excellent grades and potential for positive impact on their country of origin, applying for Masters and other postgraduate programmes in AY 2018/19.
The scholarships are for full-time postgraduate taught degrees (namely, MA, MSc, LLM, MRes, Postgraduate Diploma, and Graduate Diploma), with the exception of the following degrees:
- Corruption, Law and Governance LLM (delivered in Qatar)
- Development Studies MA
- Early Years in Education MA
- Globalisation, Business and Development MA
- Governance, Development and Public Policy MA
- Power, Participation and Social Change MA
- Poverty and Development MA
- Masters degrees in Social Work (if receiving a NHS bursary)
- PGCE courses
- Schools direct teaching courses
- any Masters funded by the research councils (e.g. those receiving ESRC 1+3 funding are not eligible)
- any Masters at Brighton and Sussex Medical School.
The scholarships are for 1 year, and amount to 50% off the international student tuition fee.
Scholarship applicants must have applied for and been offered a place to study on an eligible full-time Postgraduate Taught degree at the University of Sussex. They have to be students paying fees at the “overseas” tuition fee rate, which is the non-EU rate. They must have sufficient funds to meet their tuition fees and living expenses, after taking account of the possible award of a Chancellor’s International Scholarship. They should intend to remain on the programme for which the scholarship is offered.
Students who hold other University of Sussex scholarships, including the SYLFF Fellowship, will not be eligible for the Chancellor’s International Scholarship. Current University of Sussex students are eligible if they are completing an Undergraduate degree or Postgraduate Diploma and applying for a Postgraduate taught degree.
Applications are to be done online by 1 May 2018.
