Master Scholarships for 2020 entry 

The IoPPN is delighted to announce scholarships for students applying for 2020

IoPPN Postgraduate Taught Scholarships 2020/2021

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/EU and international fee status students undertaking a Postgraduate Taught (PGCert, PGDip or MSc) course at the IoPPN, starting in Sept 2020.

Scholarships are being offered at a value of £1,000, and £5,000 each.

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 UK/EU and International applicants. Applicants must fulfil all 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 2020 (please note scholarships cannot be deferred to 2021 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 and email to Dr Juliet Foster ioppn.educationsupport@kcl.ac.uk

The deadline for scholarship applications for academic year 2020/2021 is Friday 28 February 2020.

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. Deposits are not required until 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.

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)

The deadline for applications is Friday 28 February 2020

Provided your application form has been accurately completed and the appropriate documentary evidence supplied, you will be notified of the decision by Friday 13 March 2020. Deposits are not required until a decision has been made on the scholarships, unsuccessful scholarship candidates will need to pay their programme deposit within two weeks of the outcome.
