The Overseas Student Scholarship Fund is open to students living outside the European Union and the European Free Trade Area, who are liable to pay overseas tuition fees and whom Abertay believes would bring to the University additional personal and academic qualities.
The University offers the Scholarship Scheme with the value of each scholarship directly related to the quality of the individual applicant’s academic merit and/or personal achievements in sport or music.
Available scholarships under the Scheme are: 1). The Academic Merit Scholarships - available to those with outstanding academic merit, based on their proven academic record at school and/or college and/or university at the point of application; AND 2). The Personal Achievement Scholarships - available to those applicants whose personal achievements in sport or music demonstrate a commitment and determination to excel in other aspects of life.
The following are required:
- You can only apply for a scholarship if you have submitted an application for a place on a degree or postgraduate programme at Abertay.
- Students applying for one or more full years of study at the University of Abertay Dundee, at either undergraduate or postgraduate level, will be eligible to apply for a scholarship.
- Undergraduate students who are granted a place on a University of Abertay Dundee full-time degree course and are awarded a scholarship will benefit from the scholarship funding each year, for up to four years depending on the length of their course.
- For taught postgraduate degrees, successful applicants will enjoy scholarship funding for the duration of their course (normally between 12 and 18 months).
The fund will support individual scholarships based on academic merit, and/or personal achievement in either sports or music.

Applicants can apply for multiple scholarships, but students may only be awarded one scholarship i.e. applicants cannot receive multiple awards.

You can only apply for a scholarship if you have submitted an application for a place on a degree or postgraduate programme at Abertay. Abertay University would expect that you will be able to submit evidence of having achieved an advanced level by a recognised body in the musical or sporting world.
