Postgraduate scholarships for £10,000 still available at Birkbeck

Scholarships for £10,000 are still available at through Birkbeck's postgraduate support scheme

Applications are still being accepted for Birkbeck’s generous postgraduate scholarship scheme which offers successful applicants £10,000 each to put towards fees.

A limited number of scholarships are still available for the Postgraduate Support Scheme (PSS), which has been specially designed for final year undergraduate students looking to start one of 200+ part-time Master’s degree programmes at the College.

But with the September 28 start date for the 2015-16 term already on the horizon - plus the fact this scheme is available for one year only - applicants only have a short time to apply.

The PSS comes as a welcome addition to Birkbeck’s already competitively priced tuition fees. The scheme was designed to provide students with an excellent opportunity to progress to postgraduate study without the financial worry.

To be eligible for the scholarships, applicants must be:

  • Starting a two-year part-time taught Master’s degree in 2015/16
  • Domiciled in the UK/EU
  • Progressing from an undergraduate course for which they were charged the higher tuition fee (applicable since 2012-13)
  • Studying at postgraduate Master’s level for the first time

The scholarship scheme is available on more than 200 of Birkbeck’s courses, representing a wide portfolio of disciplines from across the College’s five Schools. View the full list of two-year part-time postgraduate programmes running.

    Professor Sue Jackson, Pro-Vice-Master, Learning and Teaching for Birkbeck, said: “I would encourage students to take up this excellent opportunity offered through the Postgraduate Support Scheme.

    “Birkbeck has consistently been rated as one of the top institutions for its intellectually stimulating teaching. Postgraduate study at Birkbeck opens exciting opportunities for you to study alongside learners who are as diverse as London’s population, and with staff who excel at excellence in teaching and in research"

    Further details and conditions of eligibility for the PSS can be found on the Postgraduate Support Scheme home page. All submitted applications will be considered on the first Friday of each month.
