Postgraduate Scholarships

We are delighted to offer a number of scholarships for applicants joining us on a full-time or part-time 180 credit postgraduate course (but not Distance Learning or 'top up' course) starting in September 2018 or January 2019.

You can apply to be considered if you:

  • Are fully self-funding
  • Have UK or EU nationality
  • Have applied to, and been offered a place on, the campus based 180 credit postgraduate degree of your choice
  • Have achieved, or are predicted to achieve, a 2:1 from your undergraduate degree, or have significant, relevant managerial or professional work experience. (If you are awarded a scholarship but then do not achieve a 2:1 you will no longer be eligible for the scholarship award)
  • Have yet to start your postgraduate course at the University of Portsmouth. Scholarship applications cannot be accepted once you have started your course.

The scholarship will be in the form of 40% discount off any tuition fee relating to a full-time or part-time 180 credit postgraduate course, except distance learning or 'top up' courses. This discount cannot be taken in conjunction with any other discount or bursary offered by the University with the exception of the 2% early payment discount which is applied to the net value of the fee.

If you are eligible for the alumni discount of 20%, this will be included as part of the overall discount applied. The early payment discount is available to self-funding students who pay their tuition fee in full in advance of the beginning of the academic year. Successful scholarship applicants will be required to accept their place on the programme within four weeks of notification in order to obtain the reduction in the fee.

The deadline for all scholarship applications for September 2018 has now passed. No further applications will be accepted.

The deadline for all scholarship applications for January 2019 entry courses is Friday 16th November 2018.

The Government is offering a loan for postgraduate Master's study of up to £10,609 which can be used towards tuition fees, living expenditures and other course costs (conditions apply).
