Scholarships and Funding (2013 entry)
We know that undertaking a postgraduate programme can be a significant financial commitment and we are therefore making available significant scholarship funds for applicants who have been offered a place on the MSc Human Resource and Knowledge Management programme for entry in October 2013 and who meet our scholarship criteria. The scholarship amounts vary and are typically awarded in the amounts of £1,000 to £4,000, but can be up to 50% of the fees.
You will automatically be considered for a scholarship when we review your application and while funds are available. There is no need to complete any additional paperwork, however you may be invited to participate in a short telephone interview as part of the selection process. Our admissions team will advise you by email if you have been shortlisted.
If you receive a scholarship you may be asked to act as a student ambassador and or student representative for your programme.
Academic Excellence Scholarships
Academic excellence scholarships are available on a competitive basis to applicants with an outstanding academic profile, for example, an undergraduate degree equivalent to a UK first class honours degree.
Generous scholarships are available on a competitive basis to applicants with a strong academic and/or personal profile who are nationals of the UK or EU countries.
International scholarships are available on a competitive basis to applicants with a strong academic and/or personal profile who are nationals of non-EU countries.
If you graduated in 2012 or 2013 from Lancaster University and achieved a 1st class honours degree or a 2:1 honours degree and are offered a place for the 2013/14 academic year, you will automatically receive an alumni scholarship.
- If you graduated with a 1st class hons degree, you will be eligible for a £2000 Alumni Scholarship.
- If you graduated with a 2:1 hons degree, you will be eligible for a £1000 Alumni Scholarship
Alumni scholarships are only available to Lancaster University graduates and not to those graduating from our partner institutions.
