The University of Roehampton and the Society of the Sacred Heart have established a scholarship fund to encourage postgraduate studies and research in areas which promote international understanding and which enable candidates to work more effectively in their communities upon completion of their studies.
The scholarships are available to academically excellent students from both within and outside the UK to follow a programme of study at the University of Roehampton.
Candidates in any discipline are encouraged to apply.

  • Scholarships for taught masters and taught doctorate programmes will be for the duration of the course, while MPhil and PhD scholarships will be for a maximum of 3 years for full-time students or 5 years for part-time students.
