Scholarships and Student Funding

Nursing Studies Alumni Scholarship

Nursing Studies alumni have generously funded a scholarship to support a student in one the taught Masters programmes in Nursing Studies at the University of Edinburgh. This scholarship will be open to all applicants for postgraduate taught degrees in Nursing Studies.


The award compromises a contribution toward tuition fees of £3,500 for one academic year.


The scholarship is available to Home, EU, and Overseas students who have been accepted onto either the MSc Advancing Nursing Practice programme or the Masters of Nursing in Clinical Research to study either full time or part-time, commencing in 2017-2018.

Applicants should already have been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so.

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


The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence. Candidates must have, or expect to obtain, a UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree or international equivalent at undergraduate level.


Applications for this scholarship are no longer being accepted for 2017-18 as the deadline of 28th April 2017 has now passed.


All applicants will be notified of the outcome by the end of June 2017.
