Manchester Metropolitan University: Igniting talent through international scholarships

Manchester Met

Manchester Metropolitan University is now offering a range of scholarships for international students to join their September 2020 intake.

Based in one of the UK’s most popular cities, and voted one of the best places to live in the world by the Time Out Best Cities Index 2019, Manchester Met ties a top location to an array of industry-relevant courses and scholarship opportunities.

As Manchester Met says, “Talent of all kinds thrive in Manchester. The city is full of innovation, creativity and spark; it’s a place to get inspired.”

Start your future with a scholarship

Committed to recognising high-achieving students, Manchester Met wants to help learners from all over the world overcome any financial barriers that may hold them back from achieving their full potential.

If you’re eager to experience a creative and cultural study adventure in the UK, and you’re leaning towards courses at Manchester Met, you just might be eligible for one of many scholarships being offered.

For undergraduate applicants who are new to Manchester Met, there’s the International Undergraduate Scholarship.

If you’re awarded this scholarship, you’ll be granted £2,000 (≈US$2,958) for every year of study in the full-time taught undergraduate programme.

But you must hold an offer for a full-time taught programme – either three-year, four-year sandwich, or with an integrated foundation year programme – that starts in September 2020 to be eligible for this scholarship.

For postgraduate applicants, they can opt for the International Postgraduate Scholarship.

This scholarship offers high-achieving applicants up to £2,500 (≈US$3,247) for every year of study in the full-time taught Master’s programme. Applicants must plan to start their studies in September 2020 to be eligible.

Additionally, Manchester Met offers the Vice-Chancellor’s International Scholarships.

These exclusive scholarships are open to exceptional international students who enrol on a full-time taught programme in September 2020. Each to the value of £5,000 (≈US$6,494).

“When applying for a scholarship, make sure to address the main points stated in the essay questions and mention your personal experiences as much as possible,” advised Fareehah, a Vice-Chancellor’s International Scholarship recipient.

Please note that all scholarship opportunities above are open to non-EU applicants only.

Thrive in a top UK city

With a city-centre campus in the heart of Manchester, it’s no wonder that over 3,500 international students from more than 140 countries chose Manchester Met as their study abroad destination.

Deemed the fourth most popular student city in the world by Student.com in 2018, Manchester is home to eclectic restaurants, bars, shops, museums, galleries and it’s conveniently close to Europe.

And despite being a city, Manchester will soon feel like a home-away-from-home as different districts are like discrete villages, easy to get around and within walking distance of each other.

For students who would like to explore further, there’s postcard-like scenery and exciting adventure spots a little more than an hour’s drive away from Manchester Met.

For instance, there’s the Lake District National Park which is known for its glacial ribbon lakes and England’s highest mountain. Then there’s Snowdonia National Park, which promises adventurous walking routes and showcases some of the UK’s most exquisite natural beauty.

And with its effective sustainability strategy and education on sustainable development in place, Manchester Met has been ranked as a top 10 university in the People & Planet University League for seven consecutive years.

Academically, Manchester Met has a proud history of higher education in Manchester since 1824 and has maintained global industry links with top multinationals such as Nike, Hilton, DHL and Dentsu Aegis Network.
