Swansea University opens its doors to postgraduate students

Ever thought it would be great to work on the Bloodhound Supersonic Car or tag a whale or shark to track and analyse its behaviour. Swansea University is offering assisted scholarships which could mean that you realise your dream!

A variety of scholarships are on offer but the majority are available through the Master’s and International Excellence Scholarship programmes.

In total around 140 Postgraduate Master’s and International Excellence Scholarship opportunities are on offer. 100 Masters Scholarships are available, each worth £2,900 and 39 International Excellence Scholarships worth £3,000 each.

 As a University that is providing high-quality international research leadership which has gained a reputation as one of the UK’s most ambitious research-led universities, Swansea University has become a natural choice for a great many talented postgraduates.

Jennifer Willoughby, MA Ancient Egyptian Culture said; “I studied the MA programme in Ancient Egyptian Culture at Swansea University. After graduating I worked for a year in Cairo as an assistant to the Secretary of the Supreme Council of Antiquities. I have returned to Swansea to earn my PhD in Egyptology and become a University professor. My time at Swansea helped me to make important connections and put me in an excellent position to succeed in the field of Egyptology.”

The portfolio of scholarships on offer by Swansea University has been recognised as being impressive. In 2012, over £4 million was invested in postgraduate scholarships and bursaries and the University has now begun to advertise a large number of postgraduate scholarship opportunities for UK/EU/International students for 2013. Over 250 scholarships will be made available throughout the next year for entry in 2013 for both research and taught programmes.
