Equity and Merit Scholarship students

Equity and Merit Scholarships for international master’s students

Equity and Merit Scholarships assist talented but economically disadvantaged students from some of the world’s poorest countries.

We offer two types of scholarship:

  • One-year, full-time, on-campus master’s
  • Part-time distance learning master’s (three to five years' duration)

There are 27 scholarships (17 for full-time study and 10 for part-time study) available to students from Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Tanzania. The scholarships cover full tuition fees, and for students who will be studying in Manchester, the award includes return international air fares, living expenses and visas.
