The MBE is a highly international programme that attracts applications from outstanding individuals from all over the world, who either fund their own studies, gain financial support from a diversity of scholarships trusts and charitable organisations, or are supported by their employers.

Prospective students may be eligible to apply for the University’s advertised educational awards and scholarships, as advertised in the Graduate Studies Prospectus, and for which competition is very strong. Applicants may find the University Funding search function useful. 

Candidates are advised to familiarise themselves with the eligibility criteria and the specific closing dates.  To be considered for financial support eligible candidates must also submit their applications for a place on the programme at the earliest possible date.  Applications for admission open in September. The official closing date for applications is 30 June, but may be considerably earlier if the course is fully subscribed. Note also that the closing date for bursary and scholarship applications is usually much earlier (end of December) than that advertised for programme.
