Type of Funding
The University of Westminster is inviting international students from developing countries who wish to undertake a full-time Masters degree at the University commencing January 2020, to apply for the Westminster Full International Scholarship – January Start. One scholarship will be made available.
The University of Westminster currently offers Masters degree programmes in the Business and Law schools and the faculties of Architecture and the Built Environment; Media, Arts and Design; Science and Technology; and Social Sciences and Humanities.
This is a full fee scholarship award, which covers tuition fees, accommodation, living expenses and flights to and from London.
Applicants must be international students from developing countries (see the Official Website for eligible countries) holding a conditional or unconditional offer for a full-time Masters course beginning January 2020 at the University of Westminster. Applications for the scholarship will be evaluated on the basis on academic excellence and applicants should possess the equivalent to a UK First Class Honours degree. They will also be assessed on financial need and development potential.
Candidates who have already obtained a degree in a developed country and those with an Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ) are not eligible to apply for a scholarship. This means that a graduate applying for another undergraduate degree or a Masters graduate applying for a postgraduate degree, are ineligible, as they are considered ELQ students. The only exception to this is if the international Masters qualification is regarded as equivalent to a UK undergraduate degree.
Those who have applied for a University of Westminster scholarship within the last 2 years and have been unsuccessful, are ineligible to reapply for 2 calendar years. For example, if the candidate’s September 2019 scholarship application is rejected, the next scholarship programme the candidate can apply for is September 2021.
All scholarship applications are open to new students only and current students at the University are ineligible.
Studies in the following courses are not eligible for the scholarship:
- Postgraduate Diploma (e.g. Graduate Diploma in Law)
- Professional Practice Courses (e.g. RIBA pt. III)
- Conversion Courses
- Integrated foundation year or masters
Applications are to be sent by post and have to reach the University by 31 October 2019.
