£1,000 Progression Scholarship for University of Exeter undergraduate finalists

We are pleased to offer a £1,000 scholarship towards the cost of tution fees for all students who progress directly to postgraduate from undergraduate study with us next academic year (2016/17).

The scholarship is available to any 2016 Exeter graduate starting a Taught Masters degree (MA/MFA/MRes/MSc) in the College of Humanities September 2016.

This means that if you register on a Taught Masters programme with us in September 2016, your fees will be adjusted accordingly:

  • Home/EU - actual Full-time fee is £6,900, but with the Progression Scholarship you pay £5,900
  • International - actual Full-time fee is £15,950, but with the Progression Scholarship you pay £14,950

NB: as Part-Time fees are pro rata over two years, the award will also be divided over two years (eg £500 per year).

Further information on our £1,000 Progression Scholarship, including eligibility and entry requirements, can be found on our funding web pages.

Please be aware that, as the award is conditional on you registering on a Taught Masters programme with us in September 2016, until you register with us any correspondence from the University will quote the full programme fee.

Please see our Continue your studies web page, for further information on the benefits of staying on at the University of Exeter for postgraduate study and the application process.
