The Warwick Taught Masters Scholarship is aimed at breaking down the barriers around postgraduate education. The total amount available to be awarded is 600,000 Pounds Sterling. These are used to fund standard fee courses completely, fund non-standard courses partially, and cover diploma and certificate courses completely. In addition, 4000 Pounds Sterling will be paid to the student in 4 equal instalments. This is to help cover course costs.
