These Master's Scholarships are limited. So we can't guarantee you'll get a Master's Scholarship 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 Master’s Scholarship terms and conditions before you accept it, as an alternative University scholarship may be more suitable for you.

How to apply

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

You don't need to do a separate application for the Master’s Scholarship – we'll let you know if you're successful in early July 2018. You don't have to accept it 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.
