Please note that this is not a needs-based scholarship, so your financial situation will not be taken into account.

Application Guidelines

The primary factor determining an application's success is the strength of the case for support in addition to grades. This case for support should demonstrate why you fit the above criteria as well as reflect your motivations for choosing to do the Double Degree. Your case for support should be no more than 600 words in length and should differ from the statement of purpose submitted with your application to the university.

The application form can be downloaded here. They should be completed and submitted alongside your undergraduate and current Masters transcripts via email to Melissa Venables no later than 9 February 2018.

We aim to make a decision on applications within six weeks of the closing date. If you have not received the results of your application within seven weeks of the closing date, you may assume your application was not successful.
