The School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences at the University of Reading is delighted to offer four International Excellence Scholarships for postgraduate students.

Value of Award: 4 x £2,500

Application closing date: 1st March 2019

Awards may be allocated early in the application cycle; early course applications are therefore encouraged.

Eligibility criteria:

The scholarships are open to all international /overseas fee paying applicants who:

  • Have applied for the MSc Psychology Conversion, MSc Theory and Practice in Clinical Psychology, MSc Language Sciences, MSc Speech and Language Therapy, MSc Research Methods in Psychology, and MSc Cognitive Neuroscience programmes in the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences at the University of Reading, and are due to commence their courses in September 2019;
  • Fulfil the relevant academic and English proficiency entry requirements for the MSc programmes, set by the School;
  • Because the award provides partial funding only, applicants must be able to confirm that they have/are seeking the means to support any outstanding fees/costs not covered by this scheme i.e. through other funding awards or self-funding;
  • Recipients of a scholarship will be asked to pay a deposit of £1000 within 28 days of award. Failure to do so will mean the scholarship is reallocated later in the cycle.

* Please note that the scholarship you are applying for makes a contribution towards the cost of tuition fees. If you do receive a scholarship from another source that covers the cost of tuition in full (e.g. a Chevening scholarship) then you will be ineligible for our scholarship. Our scholarships can be held in conjunction with other partial scholarships.


International Excellence Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis, based on:

  • Academic performance as indicated by GPA in your undergraduate studies;
  • Other relevant skills and knowledge (for example, programming courses outside the degree, or relevant work experience);
  • Research activity (co-authoring papers, conference presentations, etc);
  • Personal statement, which should include information on why you want to do the course you have applied for, and how it fits with your aspirations.
