Chancellor's International Scholarships - University of Sussex

Up to forty Chancellor's International Scholarships of £2,500 are available to new overseas fee paying students each year who are applying to study at Undergraduate and Postgraduate taught degree level. The scholarships are available in the majority of Sussex Schools, and are awarded on the basis of academic performance and potential. The scholarships are offered for the duration of the degree programme, subject to satisfactory progress, and will be issued in the form of a cheque during the Autumn Term or credited towards your tuition fees.

Eligibility criteria
In order to be considered for a Chancellor's International Scholarship you must meet all of the following criteria:

Have applied for and accepted a place to start an Undergraduate degree at the University of Sussex (e.g., BA, BSc, BEng, LLB, MEng, etc), or a Postgraduate taught degree (e.g., MA, MSc, LLM, MRes, Postgraduate Diploma, and Graduate Diploma) excluding the following degrees:

Programmes in the Institute of Development Studies, apart from the MA Gender and Development
MSc in Social Research Methods + DPhil combined (1+3 degrees)

Applications for places on our degree programmes must be made via UCAS for Undergraduate study, and on the Sussex Postgraduate Application form for Postgraduate study.
