Master's Scholarships for 2022 entry 

The IoPPN is delighted to announce their scholarships for students applying for 2022

IoPPN Dean’s Postgraduate Taught Scholarships 2022/2023

The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) is offering a number of scholarships to support students with the financial commitments of postgraduate study. The scholarships are available for all full-time Home and international fee status students undertaking an eligible Postgraduate Taught (PGCert, PGDip or MSc) course at the IoPPN, starting in Sept 2022.

Please note: If you had previously applied for an IoPPN Postgraduate Taught Scholarship with deadline Friday 18 March 2022, you will have been notified of the outcome by Friday, 8 April 2022. If you have been unsuccessful in your IoPPN Postgraduate Taught scholarship application, your application will be automatically forwarded for consideration for the IoPPN Dean’s Postgraduate Taught scholarships.

If you are unsuccessful in obtaining a scholarship, this does not affect the outcome of your postgraduate programme application in any way.

Scholarships are being offered at a value of £1,000, and £5,000 each, please see below for a list of eligible courses.

The scholarships are paid towards the fees via an internal transfer within the university. The scholarship holder will still need to meet the difference in fees personally or from another award.

These awards are open to Home and International (including EU) applicants. Applicants must fulfil all of the following requirements:

  • Have applied to one of the full-time Postgraduate Taught programmes at the IoPPN (*see the full list of eligible courses below) and be due to commence their programme in September 2022 (please note scholarships cannot be deferred to 2023 or later entry).
  • Fulfil the relevant academic and English proficiency entry requirements for the Postgraduate Taught programme, set by King’s College London.
  • As the award provides partial funding only, applicants must be able to confirm that they have/are seeking the means to support any outstanding fees/costs not covered by this scheme i.e., through other funding awards or self-funding.
  • You must not already hold a Master’s, or equivalent postgraduate qualification. Students who already hold a Master’s degree or higher are not eligible for this funding but students who have undertaken prior postgraduate study such as PG Diplomas or PG Certificates or clinical/medical qualifications are eligible.

You must submit an online admissions application for one of the IoPPN Postgraduate Taught programmes. Once you have applied for your chosen programme, please complete the scholarship application form, save it as a Word document naming the file with your name and the name of the programme to which to are applying (‘first name_family name_programme.doc’) and email to ioppn.pgtscholarships@kcl.ac.uk

The deadline for the Dean’s scholarship applications for academic year 2022/2023 is Monday, 6 June 2022 (17:00 UK time).

You must ensure that your application is ‘complete’ in order to be considered for funding. To be deemed ‘complete’, it must contain all the relevant supporting documentation required by the programme applied to, such as references, transcripts, and English language scores. However, you do not need to have received an offer from your chosen programme to apply for a scholarship. Applicants must pay a deposit to accept their programme offer within the deadline stated by King’s Admissions. (The deposit deadline varies according to when the programme offer is made and must be paid by the specified deadline regardless of whether a decision has been made on the scholarships). If you have already paid your deposit, you will still be considered for a scholarship.

You may apply to, and hold, other scholarship schemes at King’s but you will not be able to hold more than one IoPPN scholarship. (If you are offered more than one IoPPN scholarship, you will be allowed to select which award you would like to hold).

Scholarship application form

You will be assessed on the strength of your application to your chosen Postgraduate Taught programme and your IoPPN Scholarship Application Form including:

  • Academic qualifications and merit.
  • Relevant clinical and/or work experience.
  • Personal Statement (you should explain why the programme of study to which you have applied is appropriate for you and your intended progression at the end of the course - you may use the same personal statement as the one used to apply to your chosen Postgraduate Taught programme).

    IoPPN Clinician Investigator Scholarships 2022/23

    The King’s IoPPN Clinician Investigator Scholarship was established through a generous philanthropic donation, to support MSc scholarships in the IoPPN for HOME status students.

    The scholarships are aimed at encouraging current or recent graduates of the King’s MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery), King’s GPEP (Medicine Graduate & Professional Entry Programme), King’s EMDP (Extended Medical Degree Programme), applicants to IoPPN MSc clinically focussed programmes in the areas of mental health and neurosciences, starting in 2022/2023. This scholarship will be awarded based on academic merit.

    The scholarships are available for MSc programmes in the IoPPN. Each student will receive a £20,000 scholarship, for the duration of their studies.

    If you are unsuccessful in obtaining a scholarship, this does not affect the outcome of your postgraduate programme application in any way.

    The scholarship will be worth £20,000, available towards payment of tuition fees with the remaining amount as a stipend towards living expenses. For applicants in receipt of funds to cover tuition fees, the scholarship can be used as a stipend towards living expenses.

    The scholarship holder will still need to meet the difference in living expenses or other related costs personally or from another award.

    These awards are only open to HOME status applicants. Applicants must fulfil all the following requirements:

    • Current final year student or graduate of King’s MBBS, King’s GPEP, King’s EMDP or GKT Medical School. (Non-medically qualified graduates from King’s or other universities may apply for a scholarship for an IoPPN MSc programme but in this case, they can only apply to the clinically-focussed MSc programmes listed below *).
    • Have applied to one of the relevant full-time MSc programmes at the IoPPN and be due to commence their programme in 2022/2023 (please note scholarships cannot be deferred to 2023 or later entry).
    • Fulfil the relevant academic and English proficiency entry requirements for the MSc programme, set by King’s College London.
    • The award covers full funding for HOME fees, but applicants must be able to confirm that they have/are seeking the means to support any outstanding costs not covered by this award (e.g., living costs) through other funding awards or self-funding.
    • You must not already hold a Master’s, or equivalent postgraduate qualification. Students who already hold a Master’s degree or higher are not eligible for this funding but students who have undertaken prior postgraduate study such as PG Diplomas or PG Certificates or clinical/medical qualifications are eligible.

    You must submit an online admissions application for one of the IoPPN MSc programmes. Once you have applied for your chosen programme, please complete the scholarship application form, save it as a Word document naming the file with your name and the name of the programme to which to are applying (‘first name_family name_programme.doc’) and email to ioppn.pgtscholarships@kcl.ac.uk

To be deemed ‘complete’, it must contain all the relevant supporting documentation required by the programme applied to, such as references, transcripts, and English language scores. However, you do not need to have received an offer from your chosen programme to apply for a scholarship. As the scholarship would cover the full HOME tuition fees, we are able to waive the admissions deposit requirement if you are awarded the scholarship. Whilst you wait for a decision to be made on the scholarship, you should contact King’s Apply and provide evidence (e.g., screenshot of the email you sent to apply for the scholarship) so that Admissions can extend your acceptance deadline. If you have already paid your deposit, you will still be considered for a scholarship.

    Successful applicants will need to submit a letter of thanks to the donor and attend events related to the scholarship where necessary.

    You may apply to, and hold, other scholarship schemes at King’s but you will not be able to hold more than one IoPPN scholarship. (If you are offered more than one IoPPN scholarship, you will be allowed to select which award you would like to hold).
