About Degree Scholarship: The University of Sheffield offers the Merit Postgraduate Degree Scholarships to international students who show exceptional academic potential starting a postgraduate taught master’s programme at the University in September.
Each Degree Scholarship is worth 50% tuition fee discount of your postgraduate taught masters degree tuition fee per year, for one year of study. The Degree Scholarships will take the form of a tuition fee reduction.
Selection Criteria and Eligibility: The Masters Degree Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit.
To be eligible for the Merit Postgraduate Degree Scholarships:
Applicants must have applied for and been offered a study place at the University of Sheffield to be eligible to apply for the Degree Scholarship.
Applicants must apply for a study place by Friday 16 June 2017 for entry in September 2017 to be eligible to apply for the Degree Scholarship.
The Degree Scholarship application is a separate online process to applying for a course. A link to the online Degree Scholarship application will be sent by email to all eligible students from January onwards.
The Degree Scholarship will be awarded on the the basis of academic merit and the supporting statement. The final decision will be made by an academic panel.
The Degree Scholarship can be awarded in conjunction with other University of Sheffield Degree Scholarships as long as the individual does not become fully funded, for tuition fee purposes, as a result of the sum of these awards.
The Degree Scholarships will take the form of a tuition fee reduction only.
You must be self-funding and classified as overseas for tuition fee purposes.
The Degree Scholarship will not be awarded where partial funding is applicable from an external body* and there is an agreement already in place between the external body and the University of Sheffield to offer a tuition fee discount to the student.
The Degree Scholarships are for full-time and part-time students only. Students studying online or via distance learning are not eligible for the Degree Scholarships.
Part-time students will receive the full value of a one year of Degree Scholarship split pro rata over the duration of an equivalent single full-time academic year.
These Degree Scholarships exclude postgraduate courses in Clinical Dentistry.
Overseas students registered on partnership programmes will only be eligible for a proportionate amount of Degree Scholarship reflecting the percentage of the programme studied at and percentage of the tuition fees paid to the University of Sheffield. E.g. studying a 50:50 course with the University of Sheffield and another institution where the fees paid to the University of Sheffield are £8000, a Degree Scholarship will be applied which represents 50% of the full Degree Scholarship amount.
Value of Degree Scholarship: 50% tuition fee discount
Duration of Degree Scholarship: The Degree Scholarship will take one year of postgraduate study
