One scholarship available for taught masters programmes offered by the Reid School of Music.


We are offering one scholarship for the sum of £15,000.  The award will be tenable for one academic year and will be automatically deducted from your tuition fee with any remaining funds being awarded towards living costs.

All scholarship award holders are expected to be energetic members of our postgraduate community, and will engage with opportunities to present their work to the wider student and staff body during the period covered by their award.
