How to Apply for MA Studentships and Scholarships

The Admissions Office administers applications for postgraduate taught degrees. To be considered, applications need to be received by 1 March 2013. If you are successful in your application to study at the University of East Anglia, and your application is considered strong enough to be considered for an AHRC or other award at UEA, the Admissions Office will provide forms and advice on application for these as part of the process.

 International Scholarships

The University provides over £1,000,000 of scholarships each year to support international students in their studies. The awards are made by individual Schools of study in the University. All international students (outside the European Union) are considered for a scholarship of between 10% and 20% of international tuition fees when applying for a taught postgraduate course in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities (so NOT postgraduate research programmes). In order to be considered for a UEA scholarship you do not need to make a separate application. Please indicate on your application for admission that you wish to be considered for a scholarship. It is important to make the application as early as possible because they are considered as they are received. So apply early to make sure of the best chance of success.

Scholarships are awarded to students on the basis of academic merit and are normally for the duration of the period of studies – 1 year for Master’s programmes. They are available from all Schools of study and across most courses of study. Students of outstanding academic ability will also be considered for Faculty Scholarship awards usually in March and May each year. These are highly competitive and prestigious awards worth up to 100% of the international tuition fees.
