Terms and conditions for School of Management taught postgraduate master's scholarships 2021/22

Full information about eligibilty, application and selection for postgraduate master's scholarships from the School of Management.

1. Scope

These terms and conditions apply to new fee-paying full-time Taught Postgraduate Masters students taking up a place of study in 2021/22 entry, who are identified by the University as eligible for consideration for one of the Taught Postgraduate Masters Scholarships. They specifically apply to the School of Management MSc Scholarships.

Please note that there are other scholarships schemes for fee-paying Taught Postgraduate Masters students which have separate guidelines. Please see University of Bath website for full details.

The allocation of the scholarship is competitive and so not all applications received may be successful. Please see below for details on how selection is made. Only successful recipients of an award will be notified.

Scholarships are awarded in the form of a fee waiver (‘discount’) which is a sum of money to assist fee-paying students with tuition fees. The University allocates a waiver to your fee account in place of some of the fee liability you would otherwise have. There is no cash alternative to a fee waiver. Scholarships cannot be deferred and are for the 2021/22 academic entry year only.

Eligible offer holder candidates can apply for a scholarship by the School of Management using the form in the application tracker. If a form is not available in the application tracker you will be notified of the application process.

This document outlines the full terms and conditions of this scheme and you should read these before you submit your scholarship application.
