The Overseas Student Scholarship Fund is open to students living outside the European Union
and the European Free Trade Area, who are liable to pay overseas tuition fees and whom the
University of Abertay Dundee believes would bring to the University additional personal and
academic qualities. The Fund will support individual scholarships based on academic merit,
and/or personal achievement in either sports or music. They will be available for students enrolling for study at Abertay in September 2012.
Worth of Awards
The value of each scholarship award will be directly related to the quality of the individual applicant’s academic merit and/or his or her personal achievements in sport or music. The value of the award to individuals may therefore vary, but would not exceed the value of the tuition fee, and be subject to the amount of the total Scholarship Fund remaining when the application is considered.
Students applying for one or more full years of study at the University of Abertay Dundee, at either undergraduate or postgraduate level, will be eligible to apply for a scholarship. Undergraduate  students who are granted a place on a University of Abertay Dundee full-time degree course and are awarded a scholarship will benefit from the scholarship funding each year, for up to four years depending on the length of their course1. For taught postgraduate degrees, successful applicants will enjoy scholarship funding for the duration of their course (normally between 12 and 18 months).
Scholarship Types
Academic Merit Scholarships will be available to those with outstanding academic merit, based on their proven academic record at school and/or college and/or university at the point of application.
Personal Achievement Scholarships will be available to those applicants whose personal achievements in sport or music demonstrate a commitment and determination to excel in other aspects of life.
