Apply for the FoM Master's Scholarship

Key information

Application deadline: 25 April 2024

In order to be eligible, applicants must do both of the following:

  • Apply for a place on a Faculty of Medicine Master's programme
  • Complete the scholarship application form

In order to be considered for a FoM scholarship, potential candidates will need to do both of the following:

  1. Apply for a place on a Master's programme run by the Faculty of Medicine
  2. Complete the Master's Scholarships online application form

It is not essential to wait for an offer of a place on a programme to be made before applying, but the initial programme application must be made before submitting the scholarship application. To apply for a Master's programme, please use our online admissions system. 

Scholarships are awarded to applicants who are deemed by the panel to have the greatest potential to be leaders in their chosen field. This is assessed through academic excellence, professional/research experience and sense of career trajectory. Typically, applicants should be among the highest achievers in their academic cohort or have considerable professional experience. 

Once the programme application has been submitted, those who wish to apply for a scholarship should complete our online form. Please note that the scholarship selection panel will assess candidates on their scholarship application form NOT their programme application. Therefore, please make sure that all key information that you would like to be considered is included in your scholarship application. The form will need to be completed in a single session, so please be mindful of this when opening the application form. The form will ask for the following:

  • Personal details
  • The title(s) of the programme(s) which you have applied for
  • Completion of the personal statement section which is made up of four separate questions. 

If you have any queries or have difficulty completing the form, please contact the Faculty Postgraduate Team (

  • Applications will initially be reviewed by departments, before shortlisting and review at Faculty-level takes place in June.
  • All candidates will be informed of the decision - successful or not - by the end of July.
