Scholarships and Student Funding

Clinical Management of Pain Scholarship

The Department of Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine offers two scholarships to students on the Clinical Management of Pain (Online Distance Learning) programme in the 2023-2024 academic session.


Each scholarship provides a one-off payment of up to £1,000 towards tuition fees.

Applicants must be in possession of an unconditional offer by the scholarship deadline of 5th July 2023 to be considered for funding and intend to begin their PGCert/PGDip/MSc in the Clinical Management of Pain (Online Distance Learning) in 2023-2024.

The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and the strength of a personal statement.  Candidates are encouraged to address the following questions in their personal statement (400 words maximum):

  • What specific elements of this programme attracted you to the University of Edinburgh
  • How will successful completion of this programme at the University of Edinburgh benefit your career and personal development


We are offering 2 scholarships, for the sum of £1000 each.  These awards will be tenable for 2023/24 academic year and will be automatically deducted from your tuition fee.


The scholarships will be awarded to new applicants who have applied for admission to a postgraduate taught Masters or Masters by Research degree programme of study at the University commencing in September 2023. 

Applicants must have, or expect to obtain, the equivalent of a UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree at undergraduate level.


Students must be aware that this funding is for one year only and therefore should make arrangements for the rest of the fees to be paid through other means.


Applications for the 2023-2024 academic session are no longer being accepted for this scholarship as the 5th July 2023 deadline has now passed.
