The scholarship awarded will ensure that the tuition fees paid do not exceed £9,000 per annum for the duration of study, which is the fee currently paid by UK students.

You will be considered for a scholarship automatically when we receive your application to study. You do not need to make a separate scholarship application. You will receive confirmation of a scholarship with your offer letter and it applies to all years of study.
