ITS, the University of Leeds and other organisations administer a number of scholarships each year for UK, EU and international students. These range from partial course fee payment to full maintenance grants of up to £10,000 tax-free plus course fees. Key annual competitions are listed below, but for full details of those currently available, please visit the University’s postgraduate funding pages and Scholarships Office.
ITS scholarships 2015/16
Each year, ITS offers a number of partial fees scholarships for full-time Masters study. These scholarships are designed to provide exceptional opportunities to UK, EU and international students of outstanding ability, achievement and potential.
We are offering the following 50% fee scholarships for the September 2015 intake:
There is strong competition for scholarships and early application is essential. For certain scholarship competitions, the procedure is for ITS to nominate which applicants it wishes to put forward for consideration to the awarding body. Our nomination in these cases is based primarily on academic merit (degree result and references), but relevant previous experience and other factors may also be taken into account.
Other funding sources
Given the competitive nature of scholarships, it makes sense to also explore other possibilities, such as:
- Sponsorship – some organisations provide funding for their current/future employees.
- Part-time study over two or more years – this spreads the cost and can be alongside paid employment.
- Career Development Loans.
- Charitable trusts, professional bodies and other grant-making organisations.
