We offer numerous scholarships to encourage exceptional students to apply for Masters programmes at the University of Exeter. These scholarships tend to be highly competitive and merit-based, so we recommend investigating options early as deadlines and eligibility vary. Many schemes will not cover full costs, but may go some way to reducing the costs.
