International Excellence Award (Postgraduate) February 2024 entry

This prestigious award recognises academic excellence and is awarded to selected students starting a masters degree at the University of Surrey in February 2024.


The scholarship is awarded as a £5,000 fee waiver. It is open to self-funded international fee-paying students regardless of nationality or domicile. The scheme is application based and awards are decided by a scholarship awards panel.

Eligibility criteria

In order to be eligible applicants must:

  • Be an overseas fee-paying student
  • Hold an offer to study a full-time masters programme (excluding MBA)
  • Be self-funded (you must be paying for your studies independently rather than being sponsored or in receipt of another scholarship) 
  • Not be from the Surrey International Study Centre (SISC).

This award cannot be combined with an early payment discount. Applicants can only receive one scholarship award from the University and will be able to receive the award of the highest value. Applicants in receipt of the International Excellence Award will not be eligible for the alumni discount as the value of this award is higher.

How to apply

You must have an offer from the University to complete the scholarship application form. Applications without a valid student ID and offer will not be assessed.
