The Dean’s Scholarship for Academic and Clinical Excellence

At City, University of London we believe that exceptional academic and clinical performance should be recognised and rewarded.

The School of Health Sciences is offering a total of 22 Dean’s Scholarships to UK and EU postgraduate students with a profile of academic and clinical excellence starting one of our MSc programmes (September or January intake) or MSc Health Psychology/Psychology and Health (September intake.) The amount awarded depends on the programme (see below).

MSc programmes: There are a total of 12 Dean’s Scholarships of £1,500 available to both full-time and part-time students.

MSc Health Psychology/Psychology and Health: There are a total of 10 Dean’s Scholarships of £1000 available to both full-time and part-time students.

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 installment. 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 installment).
