How to apply for the Westminster International Postgraduate Full Scholarship:
Before you can apply for a scholarship, you must first apply for and hold an offer on a course at the University of Westminster. Once you hold either a conditional or unconditional offer on a course, you will be provided with a confirmation email/ letter by the admissions office and then you may apply for a scholarship.
It can take from four to six weeks to get a course offer, so you should apply for admission to your chosen course/s at least six weeks before the relevant scholarship application deadline date. Most offers of scholarships will be made conditional on students achieving required grades, which are usually of a higher standard than the entry requirements for the course.
Please note: We are currently accepting scholarship applications via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can only submit one email, including your application and all relevant documents. The email header should include your ID number and the full name of the scholarship you are applying for.
As well as completing the relevant Scholarship application form, you will need to provide the following supporting documentation:
- A copy of the letter/email from the University of Westminster confirming your conditional or unconditional offer of a place on your chosen course.
- An official copy of your transcript from your most recent/current academic study.
- A reference letter written specifically in support of your scholarship application. This should be written by a previous tutor, professor, academic or employer (where relevant to your chosen degree course) and cannot be the same reference provided as part of your admission application.
