Robert Gordon University offers Merit scholarships to international postgraduate students on a wide range of courses.

Scholarship Amounts

There are three levels of scholarship available between £500 and £3000, however the scholarship amounts may vary between schools. The scholarships will be applied to the balance of your tuition after any deposits have been paid.

Eligibility

All taught masters programmes studied full time on campus. Merit Scholarships apply to both self-funded and sponsored students and you will be notified of your award by admissions. The School of Engineering also includes students from the ‘rest of UK’ in its offering. Where the sponsor has a separate discounting arrangement with the University, the greater discount value will be awarded.

How To Apply

The vast majority of scholarships are awarded automatically and no formal application required. Formal applications for Merit scholarships are still required for The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture & Built Environment and MBA programmes. 

Awards Criteria

The level of award will depend upon your course and academic ability.
