How to apply

There is no need to apply for this award, however you do need to receive and take up an offer for the MArabic programme (starting in September 2019); the scholarship will then be applied automatically for the first year of your studies.

Please note, if you are in receipt of any external scholarship to cover your full tuition fees the amount payable by your sponsor will be reduced by the value of this award. You cannot receive more than one scholarship from the University of Exeter; if you are eligible for multiple scholarships you will be awarded whichever scholarship has the higher value.
