University of Essex, United Kingdom (UK) has launched a scholarship for Indian students who wish to pursue a masters degree in the UK. The university will now offer various scholarships to Indian students under the Academic Excellence International Masters Scholarship program.
The scholarship is available for the University of Essex admissions in September 2022 and January 2023, providing support worth up to £5,000 for Indian students.
These scholarships are awarded to Indian students on academic merit and are paid as a discount on tuition fees. The scholarship is awarded as a partial tuition fee waiver and is available to graduate students.
Eligible courses for these scholarships are full-time taught masters courses leading to MA, MSc, LLM and MRes degrees. These are awarded to students who have completed relevant school or university studies in one of the specified countries, and in the case of the UK, who are resident in one of the other specified countries.
It is also necessary that a student has successfully completed a bachelor’s degree (including integrated master’s degrees) with the specified or higher grade.
However, these scholarships are limited to students who pay foreign fees and are fully self-funded. They are not available to fully or partially sponsored students and are only available for the first year of master’s degree.
