Assessment criteria for all scholarships

If you are a home (UK) or international (EU or international) applicant applying for a taught postgraduate programme awarded by St George’s, you will be automatically considered for the scholarship providing you apply and are offered a place by the deadline. You do not need to submit an additional application form; however, you may be asked to attend a physical or virtual interview.

Successful candidates will be those who the Scholarship Committee feel will make a positive contribution to the academic environment at St George’s and achieve the highest scores.
