The Global Excellence Scholarship is available to applicants who:

  1. Are applying for a postgraduate programme in any of our Schools 
  2. Are classified as overseas fee status by the University of Dundee. You will be notified of your fee status upon application
  3. Have met all the academic conditions attached to your offer of entry
  4. Have entry qualifications which meet our eligibility criteria, which is outlined in the Scholarship Information below

Further Information

The Global Excellence scholarship is available to you if you are a postgraduate student entering your first year of study at the University of Dundee. If you are eligible to be awarded the scholarship, the amount will be deducted from your tuition fees meaning that any fees due will be minus the scholarship value. The tuition fee you pay is based on your academic year of entry and not the tuition fee published at point of application.

  • If you have achieved the equivalent of UK 1st Class Honours, then you will be automatically assessed by our Admissions team and awarded the scholarship at a value of £5,000 in entry year only. We will notify you in writing if we have awarded you the scholarship. Please take a look at our entry grades equivalents.
  • If you have achieved less than UK 1st Class Honours, then we will review your application and may invite you to apply for the scholarship. The value of the scholarship for application is £5,000 in entry year only. In general, applications will be considered if your qualifications are UK 2nd Class Honours Degree up to UK 1st Class Honours Degree, however we will review all applications on an individual basis and a decision will be made by our scholarship panel.

All grade equivalencies are at the discretion of the University of Dundee.

If you already hold an external scholarship you may still be eligible for the Global Excellence scholarship if you meet our eligibility criteria, however the value of both scholarships combined cannot exceed the full tuition fee for your programme.

For further information please read our PG Global Excellence Scholarship Terms and Conditions.
