Interview date, Process and Venue for University of Birmingham Masters Scholarship

Once the deadline has passed the scholarship applications will be collated and a longlist formed on the basis of the information provided. Selection panels will be formed comprising academic and professional services staff across the five Colleges of the University, which will be tasked with shortlisting and selection to identify those candidates demonstrating the highest academic talent.

Successful candidates will be formally notified via email before the 31 July 2021. Regrettably, owing to the volume of applications received, we will only be contacting those who have been successfully selected. 

The University will make its best endeavours to input the scholarship details onto each student’s CAS record for visa application purposes by the 31 July 2021 (this ‘note’ will be visible for the UKVI but not the student). The scholarship, applied as a discount to tuition fees, will be awarded upon enrolment of the successful candidates in September 2021.
