MSc Outdoor Education and MSc Outdoor Environmental & Sustainability Education Scholarship

The School is delighted to offer eight scholarships to UK/EU applicants accepted onto the MSc Outdoor Education or MSc Outdoor Environmental & Sustainability Education in the 2019-2020 academic session.

Award

Each award is worth £500 which will be paid directly towards programme fees.

Eligibility

The scholarships are available to UK and EU applicants who have been accepted onto the MSc Outdoor Education or MSc Outdoor Environmental & Sustainability Education programmes, commencing full time study in 2019-2020.

Applicants who have already commenced their programme of study on the closing date are not eligible for this scholarship.

Applicants intending to study on part-time programmes are not eligible for this scholarship.

Criteria

These scholarships are competitive and will be awarded broadly on the basis of academic merit.

Successful candidates will be chosen based on the following criteria:

  • Academic ability (as evidenced in standard application and references).
  • Suitability for the programme applied for in terms of previous study and work experience (standard application).
  • Commitment to scholarship and teaching in the field of Outdoor Education/Outdoor Environmental and Sustainability Education (as evidenced by the standard application and the statement in the scholarship application form).

Applicants with degrees of lower academic standing (e.g. under 2:1) but with a genuine interest and/or considerable work experience in the area of study are encouraged to apply. In cases where academic merit is equal, consideration of prior experience, demonstrable interest in the area of study and references will be considered.

Applying

Applications for this scholarship are no longer being accepted for 2019-2020 as the 31st May deadline has now passed.
