Scholarships

QMUL Language scholarships scheme: This scheme is open only to returning undergraduate students. 

Details of the scheme

  • Students can apply for a scholarship to take one module per year
  • The language module you take is non-credit bearing and will not be part of your main programme of study
  • You are expected to attend all classes (two hours per week in both semesters) and complete in-class assessments and coursework, but you will not take the final language examination

Who can apply?

  • The scheme is open to undergraduate students, and aimed primarily at students who have completed at least one year of study and are familiar with the workloads at university
  • Previous scholarship recipients can apply again (NB You cannot apply now for a second scholarship if you have already been awarded one for 2018-19.)
  • We hope to extend the scheme to postgraduate students in future years.

What to think about when applying

  • Check the list below to see which languages and levels are available under the QMUL Language Scholarships Scheme 
  • Think about how the language fits with what you are studying and how it might benefit you in the future
  • Check that you are applying for the right level of language module – you should complete the diagnostic test here before applying unless you are a beginner in the language.
  • Check whether the language module you wish to study runs at a time that does not clash with your main programme of study, or other commitments. We want you to be able to complete the module.

How to apply

  • Complete the diagnostic test if you are applying for French, German, Spanish, Japanese or Mandarin Chinese
  • Complete the Scholarship Application Form
  • We will then send the form to your School/Institute. They will indicate if they are happy to support the application.
  • All applications need to be supported by a student’s home School/Institute
  • The final allocation of scholarships will be made by a central panel 

Deadline for applications

  • Monday 13 August at 16:00
 

When will successful candidates be informed?

  • By Tuesday 4 September
 

What else is available?

  • Your School/Institute may also be able to support you in studying a language. Please contact your School/Institute office directly to see what is available. 
  • You can enrol as a self-payer later in the summer. Further information will be available later in the summer.
