Postgraduate scholarships

We offer awards totalling £200,000 every year, with our international scholarships each worth £4,000. These are open to prospective full-time postgraduate students in any subject area on a one-year taught masters degree based at Kingston University.

Scholarships are available for both September entry and January entry (for courses with a relevant start date).

International scholarship applications for September 2016 entry are now open, and will close on 31 May 2016.
