Apply Now   

Applicants will first be required to apply for a postgraduate taught programme at Aston University and then receive a conditional offer (e.g. subject to achieving a First or Upper Second Class Degree) or unconditional offer.  We will then send offer-holders a link to further details of how to apply for the Aston Postgraduate Scholarship.  Applicants will be required to supply evidence of their household income if available and produce a 400 word statement explaining why they should be considered for the scholarship.  It may take up to two weeks to receive an offer from Aston University so students considering postgraduate study should apply as soon as possible. 

This particular scholarship programme is only open to Home (UK Domiciled) / EU students studying on Full Time, 12 month postgraduate taught programmes due to the nature of the funding from the UK Government.  Other Aston Scholarships and discounts may be available to other students including our fee discount for Aston Graduates and extensive International Student Scholarships.

Mentoring and internships are subject to finding suitable mentors and employers, as part of our commitment to make this program a success we have recruited a dedicated Postgraduate Mentoring Coordinator and a Postgraduate Careers Adviser. We have an excellent track record of delivering internships and mentoring.

The Aston Masters Scholarship is funded as part of a HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council for England) Pilot Postgraduate Support Scheme.
