Master's scholarships for new students
Master's and postgraduate taught
If you achieve, or have already achieved, a first class honours degree and accept an offer on a Master's course before Friday 31 July 2020, you could get £3,000 off your course tuition fee with our Master's Scholarship.
You can also use this scholarship discount alongside the Government Postgraduate Loan scheme.
To be considered for this Master’s Scholarship you must be a UK or EU student and:

See terms and conditions for full eligibility criteria.
If you're a current student here, see our Master's Scholarship for current students.
If you're studying a full-time Master’s course over 2 years you'll get the Scholarship in the first year only.
These Master's Scholarships are limited. So we can't guarantee you'll get it if you're eligible.
You'll need to meet the specific entry criteria for the course you applied for. We give priority to students who show the highest academic achievement.
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.
Alternative discounts and scholarships
You can only get one University of Portsmouth discount or scholarship. For example, this Master’s Scholarship or the Alumni discount – not both.
Make sure you read and understand the Scholarship terms and conditions before you accept, as an alternative University discount or scholarship may be more suitable for you.
