Method of Application
Applicants must first have applied for and obtained an offer of study at Nottingham. Information on how to apply to study at The University of Nottingham is available here. We recommend that application for admission to study at Nottingham should be received at least six weeks before the scholarship closing date to allow time for the Admissions office to process the application and confirm your offer, before you can apply for the scholarship. Any application for admission to study submitted later than six weeks before the scholarship closing date is not guaranteed to be processed in time.
Please note that you will not be able to apply for a scholarship without an offer to study. You will be required to enter your postgraduate application id before you can proceed with your scholarship application. The system then checks this id to see if you have an offer for the 17/18 academic year. If you do not have an offer then you will not be able to apply.
It is important to read through the Scholarship Application Guidance and also to visit the official website (link to it is below) for complete information on how to apply for this scholarship
The closing date for scholarship applications is 10 March 2017 (12 midday UK time)
Please note that once the scholarship results are known, you will receive an email to confirm the outcome of your scholarship application. This will normally take place approximately 6 weeks after the closing date, however, in some cases this may take a little longer.
