Masters Excellence Scholarships 2015 (Pathway to PhD)
College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
Cardiff University is offering students applying to the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences a £3k scholarship to offset against fees to undertake a taught master’s degree in one of its participating School programmes.
Among the criteria that will be used to judge applications will be the potential for possible continuation to doctoral level study at a later stage. It is recognised, however, that in making this application there is not a commitment to undertake further study, or to undertake further studies at Cardiff University. Similarly, in making an award, Cardiff University is not committing to making an offer for further study or for a further award.

With the help of a very generous gift to the University, the Jameel Scholarships have been established to enable the very best students to come to Cardiff – those who have the intellect and determination to apply their knowledge for the benefit of Muslim communities in the UK, and to promote better understanding of Islam in wider society.
Four MA scholarships are available for the academic year starting 2015-16.
Please visit the main Jameel Scholarships page for full details and application forms.
