Unlock your potential with our Africa Postgraduate Excellence Award, covering a £4,000 contribution towards tuition fees.
We're offering scholarships towards full-time masters tuition fees for high-achieving international students who live in Africa.
To apply for this scholarship, you must:
- be domiciled in Africa
- be classed as an overseas student for fee purposes
- hold an offer to start a full-time masters (including MRes) in any subject area at the University of Nottingham UK in September or October 2021
You may also be eligible to apply for our Developing Solutions Masters Scholarship. You can apply and be considered for both of these scholarships but you will not be awarded both.
How to apply
You must apply for and receive an offer to study a full-time masters (including MRes) at the University of Nottingham before applying for this scholarship. Search for courses and find out how to apply.
If you have an offer for a taught masters course, you can apply through the scholarships section of our application system, MyNottingham.
If you have an offer for an MRes course, email the scholarships team on [email protected] for instructions on how to apply.
Applications close at midnight (UK time) on Friday 21 May 2021.
You will need to answer questions about your achievements, study plans and reasons for choosing to study at the University of Nottingham. Make sure you have enough time to prepare strong answers. We will assess your responses and academic merit when making scholarship decisions.
Scholarships will only be awarded to students who accept their offer to study with us. You do not need to respond to your offer before applying for this scholarship. Scholarships will be awarded after assessing all scholarship applications. We will contact you in early July 2021 to confirm the outcome of your application.
If you are awarded this scholarship, it will be deducted from the tuition fees charged to you as a student at the University of Nottingham. We will not pay tuition fee scholarships to you directly.
This award cannot be combined with another University of Nottingham regional scholarship or an International Sporting Excellence Award. However, you may also be able to receive a subject scholarship from your academic school, a sports scholarship package, or an external scholarship from your country, where the combined total does not exceed 100% of tuition fees. This could include, for example, an award from Nottingham University Business School and/or the government or other funding body in your country.
