Our award-winning Whiteknights campus is set in 130 hectares of beautiful parkland. It's the perfect place for you to make a home away from home in the UK, and achieve your academic and career goals. The campus is just 30 minutes from London by train, and 40 minutes from London Heathrow Airport by bus.

Find out about our postgraduate courses.

International scholarships

Every year, the School offers one International Excellence Scholarship of £4000 to postgraduates.

All applicants whose fee status is Overseas (and who therefore pay higher fees), and have accepted a conditional or unconditional offer are eligible to apply for one of our International Excellence Scholarships.

To apply, simply submit a well-reasoned case for support, of no more than 400 words, and send it to before the closing date of 31 July 2018.

There is no template for your case. It may include details of your academic performance to date, your extra-curricular activities, your intellectual ambitions, your broad career goals, and something about what difference the funding will make for you personally. Please ensure your responses are written in English.

The University also offers a number of international and commonwealth scholarships. For more information visit our postgraduate fees and funding pages.
