Postgraduate Masters Scholarship for UK students

Looking for details of our 2022 scholarship scheme?

Register your interest and we'll email you when the details are released.

We are delighted to offer a number of postgraduate scholarships that are worth up to half the value of your tuition fee.

This scholarship scheme is competitive and we award scholarships to the applicants who most closely meet or exceed the criteria for the award. The scholarship decision is made by an awarding committee and all decisions of that awarding committee are final.

You need to have been made an offer to study with NTU on an eligible course before applying for a scholarship.

The scholarship will be a tuition fee reduction. If you are awarded a scholarship, your fee is adjusted before you enrol. If you are a part-time student, your fee is adjusted proportionally at the start of each academic year.
