In order to be considered for one of these awards, an application for a place on a taught Masters degree at Aberystwyth University must be received by 31st May 2011.
A total of 3 scholarships worth £5000 from tuition fees of full-time students on the MSc Food & Water Security course are available for students who commence their studies in September 2011. This is open to both UK/EU and non-EU students.
Separate application forms will not be required. Therefore it is essential that the application for a place [see www.aber.ac.uk/en/postgrad/howtoapply/ ] be received by the AU Postgraduate Admissions Office by 31st May 2011. Applicants should specify “MSc Food & Water Security Scholarships” in section 4 of the Postgraduate Application Form, or in the relevant section of an on-line application.
Selection will be on the basis of academic excellence and the applicant’s suitability for their proposed course. A minimum (UK) 2.i Honours (or equivalent) is required for consideration. Information on the comparability of non-UK degrees is available at www.aber.ac.uk/en/postgrad/howtoapply/entryrequirements/comparability/ .
Decisions for 2011 will be made by a selection panel on the basis of academic excellence (see 3 above) and where applicable, relevant work experience. The panel will consist of academic representatives from IBERS, IGES and the Department of International Politics and will be chaired by the Dean of Postgraduate Studies. The results will be made available during the first week of July 2011.
Scholarships are available for entirely self-financed students (i.e. they cannot be held by students with full-awards, e.g. Chevening Scholarships, Commonwealth Shared Scholarship or any governmental award or any partial awards, including AU departmental awards and the Aber-grad Discount).
Scholarships cannot be deferred to future intakes.
