Sharjah Scholarships

About the award

The Institute of Arab & Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter is delighted to offer a number of scholarships of £1,500 per year for students commencing the MArabic (Master of Arabic & Islamic Studies) and the BA Middle East Studies in the 2020/21 academic year.

This scholarship will be awarded automatically to all first year MArabic and BA Middle East Studies students who register by 31st October 2020 at the very latest.  The scholarship will continue to be awarded throughout years 2, 3 and 4 provided you remain successfully registered on your programme of study.  

Students on combined honours modern language courses involving Arabic will also receive 50% of this award in years 1, 3 and 4 and the full amount in year 2 (spent in an Arabic-speaking country).

Scholarships will be paid to the successful recipients' nominated bank accounts in monthly instalments.

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, BA Middle East Studies or a combined honours programme including Arabic (starting in September 2020); the scholarship will then be applied automatically.

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.
