Postgraduate scholarships

Explore the full range of postgraduate scholarships available to you

LJMU offer scholarships to postgraduate students wishing to study with us from overseas. We do this in the form of tuition fee reductions and working alongside other external funding councils to produce many options for our students.

Am I eligible?

In order to qualify for one of the below scholarships, you must first meet a set list of criteria. Awards will be granted upon candidates meeting all conditions along with the presentation of an outstanding application and supporting documentation. 

Competitive scholarships have a limited number of awards. Students will be notified on the progress of their application as soon as possible after application.

Essential criteria

Candidates must:

  • have an offer of study and have firmly accepted their place before they are eligible to apply for scholarship funding
  • not have already studied a postgraduate taught degree at LJMU (unless applying for PhD study funding)
  • have the funds to cover the remaining living costs, travel and any other costs associated with studying at the University
