Applications are now open for 2018 postgraduate study. Students from across the globe come to the UK to study and work alongside leading academics. UK universities offer some of the best facilities in the world. Did you know that there is funding available to support your study?

  • Oxford has over 1,100 full graduate scholarships available. The majority of awards will go to applicants who apply before the January deadline
  • The University of Warwick allocated over £33 million of scholarship funding to help outstanding students from both the UK and abroad
  • Imperial’s scholarship search tool is designed to help you search all scholarships in one place
  • 80% of funding awarded to Cambridge students last year was from competitions that just require you to complete the funding section of the Graduate Application Form

Use the search tool on a university website to find out about postgraduate funding

Each university requires its own application so you need to leave plenty of time to prepare. Here are a few tips from RedCrest:

  • Check each course in detail before you make any decisions
  • Check university websites to find fairs and exhibitions in your country and go along with a list of questions
  • Contact postgraduate admissions to ask:
    • If your undergraduate degree meets their entry requirement
    • Which topics they expect you to have studied in your 1st degree
    • Do you need to have achieved a certain percentage pass rate in your 1st degree
  • You will usually be required to write a short personal statement. This is your opportunity to state why you are interested in the course and to demonstrate an understanding of what you will be studying
  • Check your spelling and grammar carefully
  • Some postgraduate courses require you to take tests. If you need a test, make sure you register and practice with past papers
  • Did you know RedCrest Careers will offer you a free 30-minute consultation?
