Scholarships and Student Funding

NEW**UK/EU Master's Scholarships**

100 Master's Scholarships are available for the 2015-2016 academic session at the University of Edinburgh.

UK and EU students who have already applied for a full-time masters degree programme in any subject offered by the University starting in 2015-2016 can apply for this scholarship, and must receive an offer of a place by 30th June in order to be considered.


Each scholarship will have a value of £10,000. These awards will be tenable for one academic year and will automatically be deducted from your tuition fee with any remaining funds being awarded towards living costs following confirmation of your enrolment.


The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit with candidates requiring a first-class or upper second-class (2:1) honours degree from a UK university or overseas equivalent.

Only applicants liable for the UK/EU rate of tuition fee are eligible to apply.

Applicants accepted on a part-time or online distance learning programme are not eligible to apply.

Students who are already on programme are not eligible to apply.

Only applicants who have received an offer of admission (conditional or unconditional) on the closing date of the scholarship will be considered by the panel.


This award is now closed. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2015-2016 academic session.


Selection Procedure

A Selection Committee will meet in early July 2015 to select the scholarship holders. All applicants will be notified by 24th July 2015.
