The Developing Countries Scholarship (PGT)
One off tuition fee discounts of £1,000 are available to international students who are nationals of the least developed, low and lower middle income countries (as defined by the World Bank as at December 2018).
This award can be combined with the Keele International Excellence Scholarship and the Keele Alumni Discount if you are eligible. Please visit the Keele Postgraduate Scholarship webpages for further information.
These awards are available to international applicants who are accepted onto any postgraduate programme and are a national of one of the following countries. Please note that this list is defined by the World Bank and we compile this list annually.
Qualifying recipients of the scholarship will receive the award in the form of a tuition fee discount. No cash alternative is available and the award cannot be used in place of any required deposit.
The Scholarship is for students who will be based at Keele University and start their studies in September 2019 or September 2020. The award cannot be used for any other year of entry.
Only self-funding international students are eligible and you must be confirmed as an overseas student for fee paying purposes. The scholarship is not open to students who are in receipt of funding from external bodies such as local Government, charities or private organisations.
You must be registered on, and attending, a taught postgraduate course that equates to at least one year’s full-time study at postgraduate level and leads to a named award of at least Postgraduate Diploma level at Keele University from September 2019 onwards. This means, for example, that students who attain, or are registered on, a Postgraduate Certificate course, will not receive an award. Students registered for a PhD or an MPhil are not eligible to receive an award.
Students taking a PGCE course or the MA in Social Work are not eligible to receive the Developing Scholarship.
If you are studying on a modular basis, the scholarship will be deducted from your modules pro rata only after you have successfully completed four modules. The discount will then only be applied to subsequent modules.
