We are delighted to announce that the University has made an additional 100 Masters Scholarships available for the 2015/16 academic session. Each scholarship is worth £10,000, automatically deducted from tuition fees. Any remaining funds will be awarded towards living costs following confirmation of enrollment. These new scholarships are in addition to the existing UK/EU Masters Scholarships. If you have already applied for this funding, don’t worry – you don’t need to apply again and your existing application will be automatically considered. The deadline for new applications is 30 June 2015. In order to be considered you must have received the offer of a study place (conditional or unconditional) by the same date. We’ll consider applications in early July, and let you know the outcome by the 24th July 2015. For more information on eligibility and the application process, you’ll find all the details here.

About the CSPP

Scotland’s Independent, Cross Party Think Tank

The Centre for Scottish Public Policy (CSPP)
is an independent public policy think tank. Our unique voice stems from our cross-party, and no party approach, as well as our membership base which includes individuals, trusts, public, private and voluntary organisations.

For two decades our aim has been to lead debate, research, and identify solutions on the economic and social challenges facing Scotland. We focus on the importance of place (Scotland’s cities, towns and rural communities) and people (public service innovation and community empowerment), as well as facilitating debate on Scotland’s future direction. Working with stakeholders across the policy landscape we seek to effect change that improves life outcomes for all those who live in Scotland, and may also provide exemplars of good practice globally.

Influence policy.
