    I am an Islands student, am I eligible for any scholarships or study awards?

    Islands students will be considered for the ULMS Future Leaders Masters Scholarship and ULMS Progress to Postgraduate Award, where eligible, but are not eligible for the ULMS Attainment Award.

    I am in receipt of external sponsorship, am I eligible for these awards?

    Only self-funded applicants will be considered and those who are successful in securing funding from an external source, which covers the full cost of tuition fees, will not be eligible. Applicants being part-funded by employers can only be considered for partial scholarships, not the full fee scholarship.

    Partial scholarships/awards can be combined with the following:
    • Commonwealth Postgraduate Bursary
    • Postgraduate Progression Award
    • Vice-Chancellor’s International Attainment Scholarship
    Will I be considered for a scholarship if I apply through the Progress to Postgraduate application form?

    Yes! If your academic grades are suitable for further consideration for a scholarship, you will be contacted via email after you have received your programme offer to request a CV and personal statement in order for a scholarship decision to be made.

    Alternatively, you can choose to apply through the main Apply Yourself application form, where you can upload these documents as part of your programme application.

    If you are successful in being awarded a full scholarship then you will no longer be eligible for the ULMS Progress to Postgraduate award.

    I am a continuing University of Liverpool student, am I eligible?

    Yes! Current undergraduate University of Liverpool students are eligible for our scholarships as well as the ULMS Progress to Postgraduate award and ULMS Attainment Award, where eligible.

    If you are successful in being awarded a full scholarship then you will no longer be eligible for any partial awards.

    If you receive a partial ULMS scholarship (i.e. the 50% regional Excellence Scholarships) then you will still be eligible for the ULMS Progress to Postgraduate Award as well as the central Postgraduate Progression Award. Please note that the 50% ULMS scholarships will be deducted from your fee after the set amounts.

     

    I want to defer my programme offer until 2023, can I still get the award?

    No, these scholarships and awards are only available to students commencing their studies in autumn 2022.
