There are a limited number of these Master's Scholarships available. So we can't guarantee you'll get one if you're eligible.

You'll need to meet the specific entry criteria for the course you want apply for. We give priority to students who show the highest academic achievement from low household incomes.


You can only get one University of Portsmouth scholarship. For example, this Master’s Scholarship or the Alumni Scholarship – not both.

Make sure you read and understand the terms and conditions before you accept it, as an alternative University scholarship may be more suitable for you.

How to apply

We'll let you know how to apply for the Master's Scholarship after you apply for your Master's course.

To be considered for the scholarship, you need to accept an offer on a full-time MA, MSc, MPA, MRes or LLM course by 30 June 2018.

You'll find out if you're successful in early July 2018. You don't have to accept the Master's Scholarship if another University scholarship is more suitable for you.

The University's decision on the allocation of the scholarship is in accordance with the terms and conditions and is final. There's no appeals process.
