  • Eligibility requirement:
  • The bursaries cover a wide range of one and two year master’s courses at LSE, beginning in October 2015. The funding has been awarded under HEFCE’s Postgraduate Support Scheme, which is designed to encourage progression by under-represented UK and EU students into taught postgraduate education. As required by HEFCE, bursaries will be awarded to postgraduate students with UK (home) or EU fee status, who started their undergraduate courses in 2012/13, and were charged the higher fees of £6,000-£9,000 at a university in England. The bursaries cover the following programmes at LSE: one-year full-time master’s courses, two year full-time master’s courses and two year part-time master’s courses across all LSE academic departments. Modular or Executive MSc programmes are not covered by the bursaries. The bursaries will be awarded on the basis of financial circumstances and socio-economic data, as well as academic merit. Priority will be given to students who received a full or partial grant while studying as an undergraduate and/or have a disability and/or have caring responsibilities and/or are a care leaver. To be eligible for consideration, you must submit your application for your chosen LSE course and your application for financial support using the LSE Graduate Financial Support Application form. Please note that the LSE Graduate Bursaries are available for one-year only. From 2016/17 onwards the UK government plans to offer graduate loans for UK undergraduates wanting to progress onto graduate study. Therefore, we encourage any UK or EU undergraduate who is considering graduate study and who may meet the HEFCE criteria to apply for a Master’s at LSE and the associated funding for 2015 entry. These awards will not be available in 2016.
  • Application details:
  • Once you have applied for admission, you can access this online application form via the Graduate Admissions online application tracker|. The form will then be available until 5pm (UK time) 27 April 2015.
