Home/EU Scholarships for Management, and Art Schools
The University of Southampton is investing in postgraduate education for talented students from the UK and European Union. Many students from around the world already enrol on these programmes but the University wishes to encourage more UK and EU students to join them. A recent article in the Independent newspaper claimed that the UK’s economic performance could suffer unless more people from the UK and EU stay in education after their bachelors degree to take postgraduate qualifications.
Management School Scholarships
We are offering 15 scholarships of £5,000 to UK and EU students who have been offered a place on a full-time taught masters programme at the Management School, starting in autumn 2014. There are more than 20 MSc programmes to choose from – ranging from Accounting and Finance to Supply Chain Management.
These scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis and will be awarded by the Director of Postgraduate Studies based on the following criteria:
You must be a UK/EU national.
You must have applied and been offered a place on a MSc programme (for Management) or MA programme (for Winchester School of Art)
You must hold a 1st or very good 2.1 classification (or equivalent GPA) in a Bachelors Degree
You must have submitted the application form to us by 31 July 2014 and attached in the application a 500 word personal statement containing:
Evidence of academic or career progression and any professional achievement;
How the MSc programme would enhance your career prospect.
A decision on who is awarded the scholarships will be made within 3 weeks following the deadline.
The recipient should not be in receipt of any other scholarship or bursary from the University of Southampton except the University alumni discount.
The University of Southampton believes that the £2,000 reduction in fees, along with a £3,000 living allowance represents an excellent offer to talented students. The competitive nature of the scholarship also provides an excellent addition to the successful applicants CV.
