Global Masters Scholarship
Scholarship Name Global Masters Scholarship
Academic Year 2022
Scholarship amount £10,000
Nationality Any
Scholarship Deadline 30 June 2022

We are delighted to be offering a major scholarship for international students, the Global Masters Scholarship, an award of £10,000 to provide support for you to study at the University of Birmingham in 2022/23.

What is the Global Masters Scholarship?

Birmingham has a proud heritage of removing barriers to education to enable the most academically talented students to fulfil their potential in learning and education. 

In keeping with this tradition we are proud to be launching the Global Masters Scholarship to attract and support the most academically talented international students from across the world to our Masters degrees during the 2022/23 academic year.

Approximately 40 scholarships will be awarded with a value of up to £10,000 GBP. This award will be deducted from the total tuition fees owed by each successful scholar.

The deadline to apply for this scholarship is 30 June 2022 at 23:59 (UK time / GMT+1). 

Who is eligible for a Global Masters Scholarship?

All taught Masters programmes are eligible for this scholarship, with the exception of programmes in the Birmingham Business School, for which there are separate MSc and MBA scholarships on offer.

In order to be eligible, candidates must meet the following requirements. Candidates must:

  • Have received, and accepted, an offer of admission for a taught Masters degree at the University of Birmingham UK Campus to study in the 2022/23 academic year.

  • Be classed as ‘domiciled’ in one of the eligible countries.

  • Be classed by the University as an overseas fee payer for tuition fee purposes.

  • Start their studies at the University in September/ October 2022 on a course delivered on-campus.

  • Have paid the standard £2,000 Admissions deposit by 30 June 2022.

  • Be academically exceptional and able to provide evidence for this in the scholarship application statement. Candidates should have, or be expecting to achieve, a first class overall grade (at least 70% in the UK system) in a bachelors degree or equivalent.

For example, we consider a UK first class degree to be equivalent to the following grading systems in the US, India, Nigeria and China:

  • 3.5 out of 4.0 and above in the US GPA system.

  • 70% in the Indian grading system

  • 3.5 (out of 4.0) or 4.5 (out of 5.0) or 6.2 (out of 7.0) in the Nigerian grading system

  • 85% grade awarded by a top tier Chinese University, 90% grade awarded by a mid-tier Chinese University

Students in receipt of a full scholarship or sponsorship covering full tuition fees from an alternative internal or external source are not eligible for this scholarship. Those with other partial awards may be able to conjoin this scholarship with other scholarships.

Who is not eligible for the scholarship?

  • If you decide to defer your programme start date to September 2023, you will no longer be eligible for this scholarship as it is only available for programmes with a September 2022 start date.

  • Students applying for programmes in the Birmingham Business School are not eligible for this scholarship but are eligible for other separate MSc and MBA scholarships offered by the Business School.

  • Students seeking to study on a course solely delivered as a ‘distance learning’ programme are not eligible for this scholarship.
