University of Sussex

The University of Sussex is offering scholarships for Nigerians studying a master’s degree course at their institution overseas.

As part of a broader initiative for the pursuit of student excellence, the English-based public research university is opening its doors for an unlimited number of Nigerians. Furthermore, the scholarship covers any full-time taught master’s degree course at the University of Sussex, such as MA, MSc, LLM, and MRes, with only a few exceptions.

Benefits of a Scholarship from the University of Sussex

The scholarship is worth £3,000 for applicants who meet the eligibility criteria and will be awarded as a fee reduction upon registering at Sussex.

For applicants holding or expecting to achieve a First Class degree, equivalent to a British Bachelors Honors degree from a Higher Education Institution in Nigeria, the award will automatically be enhanced to £5,000. Additionally, the scholarship will be awarded as a fee reduction.

How to Apply

To start your application process for a master’s degree scholarship, you must first register your interest in the award via PG Apply as you accept the University of Sussex’s offer of a place on an eligible master’s degree course. 

If you have already applied via one of the institution’s overseas representatives in Nigeria, you will need to ask them to do this on your behalf. Please do note that you will only be able to accept one University of Sussex scholarship.

Remember that you must declare your interest in the scholarship via PG Apply before you register for your master’s degree. In effect, information about the scholarship will be included in your CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Study) for your visa application.

In case the scholarship information is not showing on your CAS or you want to register for the scholarship after the CAS has been created, please contact the Admissions Office: [email protected].

If you have further questions regarding the scholarship or application process, you may visit the University of Sussex’s official scholarship webpage.
