Award details

University of Exeter Alumni Scholarship 2024/25

About the award

We are pleased to offer University of Exeter alumni beginning a standalone taught Masters degree (eg MA, MSc, MRes, MFA, LLM, PGCert, PGDip) or research degree (eg MPhil, PhD) with us a scholarship towards the cost of their tuition fees.

These scholarships are worth 20% of the first year tuition fee for students enrolling on a postgraduate taught or research programme of study in 2024/25.

University of Exeter online postgraduate programmes are included in this scholarship scheme, including microcredentials (online credit bearing short courses), except for MA Education (Online), which is not eligible.

The PGCE programme is also eligible for this award.

Entry requirements

Awards are available to all home and international University of Exeter alumni who have:

  • graduated from an undergraduate or postgraduate degree awarded by the University of Exeter;
  • completed an inbound Study Abroad semester/year at the University of Exeter;
  • completed a credit-bearing University of Exeter International Summer School.

In order to be eligible for the scholarship, you must meet the entry requirements for your chosen postgraduate programme and enrol on this programme in 2024/25 (1 September 2024 - 31 August 2025).

(Current University of Exeter students completing their programme in 2024 and progressing direct to another standalone University of Exeter degree programme are eligible for an equivalent award - see University of Exeter Class of 2024 Progression Scholarship.)

How to apply

The scholarship will be applied automatically to eligible postgraduate applicants enrolling for study in 2024/25. A separate scholarship application is not required. 

When submitting your postgraduate programme application via our application portal, please remember to complete the relevant section to indicate your previous Exeter study. PGCE applicants need to apply via the Department for Education (DfE) apply page.
