New funding available for MA study at Birmingham!

Birmingham Masters Scholarship scheme
The University has launched a new HEFCE-funded scholarship scheme which has enabled us to offer 224 £10,000 scholarships across the University. There are specific criteria for these scholarships, namely that students must be:
·         Domiciled in the UK or EU
·         Progressing from an undergraduate course for which they were charged the higher tuition fee
·         Studying full-time or part-time for a maximum of two years
·         Undertaking a Masters course in an eligible subject; all CAL programmes are eligible
·         From a group that is evidentially under represented among the institution’s taught-Masters population, e.g. those who attended a state school/college; have been in receipt of a student loan; participated in a widening participation scheme at undergraduate level; entered university from a care background; have been in receipt of Disabled Student Allowance or are registered disabled; or come from a home where neither parent attended university.
Application deadline: 23.59 on Tuesday 31 March 2015
