Each year, the University of Sussex offers and awards several scholarships for postgraduate study. As part of a wider initiative to invest in excellence, the University of Sussex is delighted to offer scholarships to overseas fee paying students from Nigeria admitted to start an eligible Masters course in September 2017.

Scholarship Benefits: 
The value of the scholarship award is £3,500 for applicants that meet the eligibility criteria. HOWEVER, it is enhanced to £5,000 for applicants holding or expecting to achieve a First Class degree from a Higher Education Institution in Nigeria.

  • be a national of Nigeria,
  • be a self-financing student and

To receive the enhanced award, you will be required to provide evidence of your First Class degree from a recognised institution in Nigeria.
