We offer 30 bursaries, each worth £6,000, available to UK taught postgraduate master's students starting in the academic year 2018/19. Applications are now closed for 2018 entry.

This scheme is currently under review for 2019 entry and may not be available.

Find out if you're eligible

You can apply for a bursary if you are a Home (UK) student and you have received an offer to study an eligible master's course.

An eligible master's course leads to an MSc, MBA, MA or standalone MRes with a maximum duration of two years for a full-time course or four years for a part-time course. Part-time courses must be studied at a minimum of 50% intensity (for example, a course which would take one year if studied full-time may take up to two years if studied part-time). Distance Learning courses are also not eligible for this scheme.

Preference will be given to those who meet at least one or more of the following widening participation criteria:

In addition to our widening participation criteria you will be required to provide a 400 word supporting statement. Our selection panel will also take into consideration where:

  • your gender is underrepresented in your academic department
  • your ethnicity is underrepresented in your academic faculty
