Scholarships and Student Funding

Moray House Masters Scholarships

Moray House School of Education and Sport is pleased to offer a number of scholarships covering part of the tuition fees for students commencing study on one of our Masters' degree programmes in September 2020. These will be based on merit and available to applicants for the majority of Moray House taught MSc courses.


Each award is worth up to £4,000 which will be paid directly towards tuition fees.


The scholarships are available for the majority of our taught Masters' degree programmes for students commencing study in September 2020.

Scholarships will be deducted from the tuition fees payable. Applicants who are fully sponsored by their employer or are in receipt of a full scholarship are not eligible for these scholarships. Applicants can only accept one scholarship from the University of Edinburgh Moray House School of Education and Sport.

Eligible programmes are:

Applicants who have already commenced their programme of study are not eligible for this scholarship. Applicants intending to study part-time, or for Masters by Research programmes are not eligible for this scholarship.


These scholarships will be awarded broadly on the basis of academic merit. Successful candidates will be chosen based on the following criteria:

  • Are able to demonstrate excellent academic performance
  • Are on track to obtain, or who have graduated with a minimum high 2.1 or 1st UK undergraduate degree or overseas equivalent
  • Have previously studied at a University with a strong academic reputation and ranking
  • Have the potential to contribute to and enrich all aspects of the Master's programme and the diverse academic and cultural profile of the Master's class


No additional application process is required. The School will offer scholarships to offer holders based on their MSc application, taking into consideration academic qualifications and results as well as other achievements. 

Please note there may be separate application processes for other University of Edinburgh scholarships.

Scholarships will be offered based on merit and to the highest calibre applicants (see Scholarship criteria) and based on the candidate’s application for the Master's course.


The School will communicate scholarship offers to individuals on a rolling basis, after they receive an offer onto a Master's programme. 

Scholarships must be accepted within a certain timeframe in order to secure your place on the Master's programme as well as the scholarship funding. If you do not firmly accept your place onto the Master’s programme in this timeframe, you will forfeit your scholarship offer. The School will then re-allocate this scholarship.

All applicants will be notified of the outcome by the end of August 2020.
