The University of Aberdeen invites applications for the Aberdeen Global Scholarship for European Union (EU) Students in the UK for the 2021/2022 academic year.
The scholarship is open to self-funded full-time on-campus EU International fee students registering for on-campus programmes. That is students who don’t receive either an externally funded scholarship or any other University of Aberdeen scholarships (excluding awards made by the University of Aberdeen Development Trust).
For this reason, this scholarship is being introduced on a transitional basis. And the major aim is to help to mitigate the immediate effects of Brexit on its EU student community. To this effect, they will be available to those who commence their studies in 2021/22. However, kindly note that the scholarship is not yet confirmed for students who commence their studies in or after 2022/23.
Equally, note that the scholarship is not available to students studying MBA programmes. This is especially where Home and International students are eligible for the same tuition fee rate.
Worth of Award
For a fact, there is a total of £5,000 available for eligible self-funded EU Postgraduate Masters students.
As far as applications are concerned, please note that you do not need to apply separately for this scholarship. This is because your application for the study will be automatically checked for eligibility for the scholarship when you apply.
In view of this, all eligible students will receive the scholarship as a fee discount, and your scholarship will be included in your Offer Letter. Expectedly, it will also be included in your Certificate of Acceptance to Study (CAS) letter for your visa.
There is no deadline as no application is required for this scholarship beyond the normal application deadlines for the 2021-22 admissions cycles. However, please check that you have firmly accepted an unconditional offer of study and that you have sent a confirmation of your self-funding arrangements.
How to Apply
All applications for the Aberdeen Global Scholarship should be made online via the official website.
Deadline: As aforementioned, there is no specified deadline for this scholarship.
