Additional informationThe value of each award is up to a £17,000 contribution towards tuition fees, tenable for the period of Master’s study. This will be awarded as a reduction in the tuition fee billed to the student. Awards for applicants with Home/EU fee status will be the full Home/EU fee and those for applicants with Overseas fee status will be a £17,000 contribution towards the Overseas fee. Therefore the exact value of the scholarship will be based on the applicant’s fee status.
