Annual Fund postgraduate scholarships

Through gifts made by Kingston alumni to the Annual Fund, we offer over 25 postgraduate scholarships to UK and EU students (classified as 'home' students for fees purposes) each year.

The aim is to encourage academic excellence and allow talented young graduates to continue to higher levels of learning and research.

The scholarship:

  • offers 50% off fees, up to £3,000 on one-year full-time, or two-year part-time masters programmes; and
  • is available for all courses (except teacher training/PGCE courses and PhD study).

Selection criteria

You need:

  • a first-class honours or high 2:1 in previous degree;
  • a strongly supported academic reference as to why you deserve this scholarship;
  • to be classed as 'home' for fees purpose; and
  • to have already received an offer of a place to study at Kingston.

Please note that financial need is not a consideration that will be taken into account.

Unfortunately this scholarship is not available to courses with a January start date or to students who have already started their postgraduate studies.
