Type of Funding
The University of Westminster is inviting students from developing countries undertaking full-time Masters degree courses at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University commencing September 2018, to apply for the Duke of Grafton Scholarship. One scholarship is available for AY 2018/19.
This scholarship is awarded jointly with International Students House (ISH).
Masters degree courses offered at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment are in the following subjects:
- Architecture and Interiors
- Planning, Housing and Urban Design
- Property and Construction
- Tourism and Events
- Transport and Logistics
One full scholarship will be awarded, covering all tuition fees, accommodation, flights and visa costs and providing for a monthly living allowance.
Applicants must be international students from developing countries (see the Official Website for eligible developing countries), who hold an offer for a full-time Masters within the faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. They must possess the equivalent to a UK First Class Honours degree and demonstrate financial need and development potential.
Candidates who have already obtained a degree in a developed country are not eligible for a full scholarship. Those with an Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ) are not eligible to apply for any scholarship. Graduates applying for another undergraduate degree or a Masters graduate applying for a postgraduate degree, are considered as ELQ students. The only exceptions are:
- Postgraduate applicants with a Masters degree applying for a PhD programme, or
- The international Masters qualification is regarded as equivalent to a UK undergraduate degree
Applications are to be sent by post and have to reach the University by 31 May 2018.
