[England] International Masters Scholarship 2010 from University of Exeter

Deadline: July 7, 2010

The University of Exeter has up to 15 full tuition-fee merit-based scholarships for International students commencing taught Masters programmes starting in October 2010.

These scholarships are open to applicants interested in programmes from the following Schools only.

Biosciences (two available)
Education (one available)
Geography (two available - one each for the Exeter and Cornwall campuses)

Psychology (one available)
Sports and Health Sciences (two available)
All of these awards are aimed at International students with high academic ability (typically at least an upper second class honours or international equivalent). Applicants who require pre-sessional English will be considered but will have a lower priority for an award than those applicants who already satisfy the University's English language requirements. Preference will be given to those who can demonstrate, through their application, the potential to progress to doctoral study at the University of Exeter.

Please note that a number of programmes are specifically excluded from these Scholarships:

Masters in Public Administration (MPA) within Humanities
Masters by Research (MA or MSc) are excluded as they offer the opportunity to pursue a one year research project without a taught element.
All Business School Masters are excluded from this Scholarship Scheme.
How to Apply

Students should send a completed application form by email to or by fax to +44 (0) 1392 263039 to arrive by 7 May 2010 at the latest. Please note applications will only be considered from candidates already holding an offer (either conditional or unconditional) from the University and who are classified as an International student for fee purposes.

Successful applicants will be advised of the University's decision by 14th June 2010 including any conditions for the award of the Scholarship (e.g. degree classification). Successful candidates will need to notify us of their acceptance of the Scholarship and return their deposit within three weeks of receiving our decision.
