The Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences at the University of Strathclyde has recently announced the availability of several scholarships for international students who are planning to join postgraduate taught programmes for the academic year 2023/24. 

These scholarships are aimed at exceptional students who have strong academic qualifications, and who are willing to pursue their studies in one of the eligible subjects offered by the faculty.

The scholarship programme offers a total of 285 scholarships, with a value ranging from £2,500 to £5,000. The application process for these scholarships opens on 19 March 2023 and closes on 31 July 2023. The scholarship will help with tuition fees and will be valid for one year.

To be eligible for the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences International Scholarship, applicants must hold a self-funded, international (non-EU) fee-paying offer to a full-time postgraduate taught degree programme starting in the academic year 2023/24. Additionally, applicants should have a 2:1 (or equivalent) in their undergraduate degree.

Applicants who wish to be considered for the Dean’s International Excellence Awards must demonstrate academic excellence, usually a UK first-class undergraduate degree or international equivalent, and the potential to make a significant contribution to the Strathclyde community during their studies and in their chosen profession upon graduation.

Applicants will be considered for both the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences International Scholarship and the Dean’s International Excellence Awards simultaneously by submitting one application form. However, the awards cannot be combined, and applicants will be considered for one award based on merit and competition.

Applications are now being accepted, and completed application forms should be submitted as early as possible. Applicants must apply no later than 31st July 2023 for September 2023 entry. It is important to note that the scholarships are only open for self-funded, international (non-EU) fee-paying applicants enrolling on a full-time course. Those who receive full sponsorship from a government office or embassy are not eligible to apply. Online and blended learning programmes are not eligible for these scholarships.

The Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences’ decision on the awarding of scholarships is final, and the scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis. Awards may be allocated early in the application cycle. Students are only eligible for one scholarship per academic year from the University of Strathclyde.

To receive their scholarship, awardees must enrol in the 2023/2024 academic year and continue to meet all of the above eligibility criteria. Scholarship recipients will be expected to engage with student ambassador activities during their course of study, such as supporting student recruitment activities and events.

The eligible subjects for the scholarships are Education, English, History, Law, Languages, Politics, Psychology, Speech & language therapy, Journalism, Social policy, International relations, and Social work.

In conclusion, the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences at the University of Strathclyde is offering a fantastic opportunity for international students to pursue their postgraduate studies in one of the eligible subjects with the help of these scholarships. Interested students are encouraged to apply as early as possible and meet all of the eligibility criteria to increase their chances of being awarded a scholarship.
