As part of a wider initiative to invest in excellence, the University of Sussex is delighted to offer scholarships to overseas fee paying students from Nigeria admitted to start an eligible Masters course in September 2016.
The scholarship is worth £3,000 for applicants that meet the eligibility criteria and will be awarded as a fee reduction upon registering at Sussex.
For applicants holding/expecting to achieve a First Class degree, equivalent to a British Bachelors Honours degree from a Higher Education Institution in Nigeria, the award will automatically be enhanced to £5,000.
In order to be eligible for a scholarship you must be a Nigerian, be a self-financing student and have accepted an offer of a full-time place on a Masters course at the University of Sussex commencing in September 2016. You must meet the published academic requirements for your chosen course. If your offer of a place is conditional you will need to meet the conditions of your offer before you are admitted to the University and awarded the scholarship. To receive the enhanced award, you will be required to provide evidence of your First Class degree from a recognised Nigerian institution.
You must apply for admission to an eligible Masters course via the University’s PG Apply online application system. If you are made an offer of a place, there will be an online scholarship declaration on PG Apply as part of the acceptance process. You must submit this declaration by 1 August 2016 in order to receive the scholarship.
The scholarship will be awarded automatically as a tuition fee reduction to eligible students upon enrolment at the University of Sussex.
Scholarship information will be included in your CAS for your visa, so please register your interest in the scholarship before you receive your CAS from the Admissions Office. If the scholarship information is not showing on your CAS or you want to register for the scholarship after the CAS has been created, please contact the Admissions Office: firstname.lastname@example.org
