The University of Stirling invites applications for a postgraduate scholarship for entry in September 2016. This scholarship is offered to support academic achievement and promote diversity. The scholarship is worth £3,000.
Awards will be offered in the form of a reduction in the overall tuition fee payable. Applicants requiring a Tier 4 student visa will still be required to pay the International Tuition Fee Deposit as part of the standard admissions process.
