Loughborough University Graduate School International Scholarships

Eligibility criteria
If your tuition fees are being paid by you, your family, relatives or family friends then you will be considered to be “self-financing” and are eligible for scholarship.
If, however, your fees are being paid in full by an employer, university, Government or other corporate organisation then you will not be eligible for a Loughborough University scholarship. If you have partial funding from such an organisation, then you will still be eligible for a Loughborough University scholarship, provided the amount that you are funding yourself is equal to, or more than, the value of the scholarship.

The scholarship will not normally be offered in combination with any other Loughborough University scholarship or award.

Selection criteria:
The Loughborough University Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and potential.

Different Departments will have varying criteria for awarding Scholarships, however, in general the scholarship judges will be looking for students who have the equivalent of a UK First Class honours degree, or a very high 2:1 OR who have sufficient grades to demonstrate the potential to achieve this level. Minimum CGPA of 3.3 on a scale of 4.0 and 4.3 on a scale of 5.0

The award may also be made to students who show outstanding achievement or potential in other areas. A personal statement is required as an opportunity to show that you have an exceptional background of achievement in other areas such as work or voluntary activities
