Scholarship Benefits

The UCL Global Masters Scholarship is designed to empower and motivate international students from lower-income backgrounds to undertake full-time Master’s degree programs at UCL.

  • For the academic year 2024/25, there will be as many as 85 scholarships available, with a targeted five set aside for students coming from India.
  • Each bursary is valued at £15,000 and is designated for a one-year duration. However, if the recipient is enrolled in a full-time program lasting two years, the scholarship will be distributed evenly, with 50% allocated each year.
  • Recipients of the UCL Global Masters Scholarship are permitted to accept additional scholarships, awards, studentships, or bursaries concurrently.

It should be noted that the sum of the UCL scholarship might be revised based on the aggregate value of any other financial support the student has been awarded.

  • Must originate from a lower-income background*.
  • Must have submitted a fully completed admission application, which includes the provision of references, for a full-time Master’s degree at UCL for the 2024/25 academic year.
