Sociology Scholarships Available for 2016/17
Two scholarships of up to £3,000 will be available across all three MSc programmes, to be awarded on a competitive basis to self-funding students accepting an offer of a place on the MSc for the academic year 2016/17.
The scholarship will be paid in the form of a fee remission of the appropriate amount, and will be open to both home and overseas students. Part-time students will be eligible to apply and, if successful, will receive a scholarship which is reduced pro rata but may be continued for a second year of study subject to successful completion of the first year.
Application Process for Sociology Scholarship
The closing date to be considered for a scholarship is 24 June 2016. All students who have applied for the academic year 2016/17 by this date will be asked to indicate if they wish to be considered for the scholarship competition.
Eligible applications will be assessed on grounds of academic merit regardless of whether applicants are full-time or part-time and whether they hold home or overseas status. The application process normally includes an interview, which will contribute to the assessment process for the scholarship competition and complement written information and evidence provided with the standard University application form.
Applications will be evaluated by a committee comprising MSc Programme Directors and Head of Department or a nominated deputy.
It is our intention to notify successful applicants by 8 July 2016.
