£10,000 postgraduate scholarship

The University of Sunderland has 83 £10,000 scholarships to give to postgraduate students joining the University in September / October 2015.

The £10,000 scholarship will cover all of your tuition fee, and also cover some of your living costs.


To be eligible for this scholarship you must be:

  • Graduating from an undergraduate course in 2015, which you started studying in 2012/13 and were paying the higher fees introduced in that year.
  • Applying for a full-time postgraduate taught masters course. Part-time courses and postgraduate research degrees are not eligible.
  • Classed as a 'Home' student by the UK Government. EU and international students are not eligible.

Please note: this is not a comprehensive list of eligibility requirements.

Only 83 scholarships are available, and we expect them to be very popular.

The purpose of this scholarship is to help students who might not otherwise be able to study at postgraduate level, and therefore preference will be given to students from low-participation neighbourhoods and groups which are currently underrepresented at postgradaute level.

Full details about the scholarship and eligibility will be released shortly. To be amongst the first to know more about this scholarship when the details become available, please leave your contact details below.

Alumni discount

International scholarship

All international students studying at postgraduate level are awarded a £1,000 scholarship in each year of study. You do not have to apply for this scholarship; it is automatically applied to reduce your total annual tuition fee.
