Keele Graduate Bursaries 2013
Financial help for Keele graduates wishing to undertake a taught postgraduate programme at Keele
A discount of £1,000 is available on some taught postgraduate course tuition fees for all UK/EU and international students who have graduated from a first degree programme or the Certificate in Counselling at Keele. Keele Graduate Bursaries are available for all taught postgraduate courses other than those where financial support is already available - such as the Postgraduate Certificate in Education, Social Work or certain courses where the student fee is directly funded by the National Health Service.
There are no additional forms or paperwork. You do not have to apply for this bursary. If you are eligible we will contact you.
The £1,000 will be deducted from the second payment instalment of postgraduate tuition fees. For part-time and modular study, it will be deducted on a prorata basis.
Please note: to obtain the discount you must begin postgraduate study during 2013. We cannot defer the bursaries until another academic year.

How to Apply for a KISS
You must have applied to Keele and been made an offer of a place before you apply for a Scholarship. You will need to complete the application form (see below), including a statement indicating how you meet the criteria for the Scholarship. If you are interviewed by a Keele representative in-country, you do not need to write a personal statement as you will present your case at interview.
Decisions on Scholarships will be made by the International Recruitment Team, and their decision will be final.
If you are holding a conditional offer from Keele - that is, you need to complete some qualifications - you can still apply for a Scholarship. Depending on your other information, we may wait for your academic results before making a decision.
Please note that this award is only open to applicants intending to start at Keele in 2013; you may not apply after you have begun your course at the University.
The next submission date for KIS Scholarship applications is Tuesday 28th May 2013. We cannot therefore guarantee that applications received after this date will be considered.
