The Dean's Scholarships for Academic Excellence
At City, University of London we believe that exceptional academic performance should be recognised and rewarded.
The School of Health Sciences has up to 5 Deans Scholarships of £2000 available for academically outstanding students who are currently studying on an undergraduate Programme in the School of Health Sciences and who wish to progress onto a Master’s Programme (September or January intake).
For all successful applicants, the total scholarship amount will be awarded to full-time students in the form of a fee waiver from the second fee instalment. For part-time students, half of the amount will be awarded in the form of a fee waiver in the first year, and half in the second year of study (again coming off the second fee instalment).
To qualify for The Dean's Scholarship for Academic Excellence, you must:
- currently be in your final year of Undergraduate study in the School of Health Sciences at City, University of London;
- have a grade average of 70% or above in your undergraduate studies;
- be a self-funded student and not in receipt of any other scholarships (except the alumni discount).
Application and selection
Awards will be granted by a scholarship award panel after a shortlist and selection process. Applications will be considered on the basis of academic excellence (grades obtained in both year 1 and year 2 of Undergraduate study will be taken into account), a personal statement and academic references. Only applicants with an average grade of 70% or above will be considered. The decisions will be made by a selection panel and the decisions made will be final.
To apply, please complete the official scholarships form, including a statement of no more than 500 words stating why you believe you should be awarded this scholarship. This statement will be in addition to the personal statement used for the programme application.
Please email your completed application form and academic references to our Postgraduate Administration team at firstname.lastname@example.org stating your full name and student number together with the full name of the course for which you have applied.
