Scholarships and Funding
|Important Information for all Applicants|
The Santander Master's Scholarships (funded by Santander), aim to assist the most academically able students from leading universities to pursue a Master's programme at UCL.
Up to 12 scholarships will be awarded each year to students from the following countries:
- Puerto Rico
- be nationals of one of the Santander network countries listed above AND;
- be studying at, or a graduate of, a university included on the relevant country list of eligible institutions (see Santander Universities) AND;
- be expected to obtain, or already possess, a Bachelors' degree awarded at a level equivalent to first-class Honours in a UK Bachelors degree AND;
- hold an offer of admission to a one-year, full-time UCL Master's programme, starting in the following academic year (please see an IMPORTANT NOTE below).
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence. Financial circumstances are not taken into account. The final selection is made by a panel of UCL senior academics, who may be joined by a representative from Santander.
Value, Terms and Conditions
This Scholarship is awarded for one year only, and consists of a one-off award of £5,000.
A scholarship cannot be deferred to a later year.
Unless otherwise requested by the scholar, the scholarship is usually set against tuition fees. If payment is made directly to the scholarship holder, the award is paid in three equal installments at the start of each term.
Application Deadline and Procedure
Before completing the application form, please read the Master's Application Form Guidance Notes.
Eligible candidates must complete the UCL Master's Scholarship Application Form, and submit it – along with supporting documents specified in the form – to the UCL Student Funding Office by 18 March 2013. The reference form is apart of the application form but is available to download separately here if required.
Potential candidates must ensure that they submit a full scholarship application by the deadline irrespective of whether an offer of admission has reached them or not. At/after deadline the UCL Student Funding Office will check UCL systems to confirm whether the scholarship applicant holds an offer of admissions to one of the eligible UCL programmes and on what date that offer was made. Scholarships applicants without an admission offer at the time of the scholarship deadline and for an eligible programme will be excluded from the competition at this point. It is for this reason that we recommend you apply for admission as early as possible, and submit your scholarship application by the deadline.
Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
Complete scholarship applications should be submitted to:
by email: firstname.lastname@example.org (subject 'SM App')
OR posted to:
