Scholarships worth up to £15,000 announced for Postgraduate Taught Programmes
Durham University Business School has announced it is offering over 80 scholarships for applicants to its MBA and Masters programmes.
Around half of the available scholarships will be awarded to the prestigious MBA programmes starting October 2019. The scholarships are available for self-funding applicants to the Full-time MBA and Online MBA programmes and worth £7,500 and £5,750 off the tuition fees respectively.
In addition there is one Dean’s Award scholarship of 50% off tuition fees (worth up to £15,000) for exceptional applicants.
To be eligible, candidates must hold an offer for the 2019 Full-time MBA or Online MBA programme by the appropriate scholarship deadlines detailed here.
In this offer all eligible applicants will automatically be considered for an award and will not need to make a separate scholarship application. Successful recipients will be notified shortly after their relevant deadline.
The scholarships will be awarded on merit, based on criteria including: professional accomplishments, leadership abilities, academic performance, ability to contribute to the diversity and excellence of the Durham MBA, and the quality of their application and personal profile.
Applicants to the Business School’s Masters programmes will also be considered for a range of scholarships. There is a further Dean’s Award available of 50% off the relevant masters programme fee which could be worth up to £12,500 depending upon tuition fee status and programme applied for.
Over 60 further Masters Scholarship awards are available and are split equally between applicants progressing from Durham undergraduate programmes, high achieving applicants from other UK/EU institutions and exceptional international applicants.
