Advice to Applicants

Can you apply?

Please read carefully the criteria for eligibility (see Scholarships webpage). You will waste your time applying if you graduated after July 2018, if you are not 'normally resident' in Gaza or the West Bank (including Jerusalem), or if you do not fulfil any of the other conditions for applying.

Men and women are equally eligible to apply. We welcome applications for any Master's course at Durham University, except the MBA.

We reiterate that the Trust cannot offer accommodation or support for a husband, wife or children of the scholarship holder. You must be prepared to live as a single person for the 50-week duration of the Master's Degree course.

What courses are available?

It is pointless to apply for courses that do not exist at Durham University. For instance, there are no Departments of Dentistry, Medicine, Agriculture, Art, Journalism or Architecture. Some departments (e.g. Biological Sciences and Chemistry) do not offer any Taught Master's courses.

To see a full list of taught Master's Degree courses available at Durham University, go here to get an alphabetical list. Under heading 'Course Level' check (click) the radio button 'Postgraduate Taught' so that each alphabetical list will show only postgraduate taught courses. Alternatively, you might find it easier to go to our webpage List of Master's Degree Courses.

Clik on the title of any course that interests you to go to a Summary page for that course. Then click on the 'Course Content' link. Here you can ensure that the course suits your needs and that you are eligible to apply for it. Some courses require applicants to have a Bachelor degree in a particular subject and/or appropriate work experience. Other courses admit graduates from a range of degree subjects.

All Schools and Departments provide an email address for contact if you need clarification on any of these issues.
