About this opportunity

The University of Liverpool is pleased to offer tuition fee and maintenance support for up to three postgraduate taught students who have sought international protection outside of the UK so they can proceed with their education. This scholarship will provide a full fee waiver for the year long master’s programme, as well as accommodation costs and a stipend to support living costs.

We hope to encourage well-qualified students to continue their education with us here in Liverpool studying a postgraduate taught course (MA or MSc), excluding medicine, dentistry, veterinary and nursing. See the full list of our available master’s courses here.
