Fees and funding

MSc Program-funded Scholarships (Office for Students)

The Office for Students is supporting a number of scholarships of £10,000 that aim to target students from often underrepresented in these industries particularly female, black and registered disabled students.

Other underrepresented categories include: students from POLAR Q1 and Q2, e.g. care experienced students, estranged students, Gypsy / Roma / traveller students, refugees, children from military families, veterans and partners of military personnel.

You can apply for this scholarship once you have applied and an offer from NTU to study on this course had been made. Further information about applying for this scholarship will be sent once the offer is made.

The award of the Office for Students scholarship does not exclude the students from accessing other funds, including our alumni fee discount - see below.
