It provides funding to pay the difference between the international student tuition fees and the home/EU student tuition fees.
The School of MACE then covers the home/EU fee element and awards approximately £4,400 per annum for maintenance.
Eligibility: Due to the funding restrictions, only overseas students may be considered for the award.
Applicants must either possess a first class honours degree or international equivalent (this is normally determined as being within, at least, the top 10% of your graduating cohort) or hold a Master's degree with distinction.
Applicants will be considered solely on the basis of their academic excellence and research potential.
Application date: November
