INTRODUCTION
BY PROFESSOR GEOFFREY PETTS
VICE-CHANCELLOR

The University of Westminster is an international


university with a diverse community of students
and staff in the heart of a global city. We are
very proud of our Scholarship Scheme, which
supports students from diverse backgrounds
from all over the world. The 2014/15
academic year marks the thirteenth anniversary
of this scheme. Our investment in scholarships
has helped a great many students realise their
potential. The scholarships have enabled them
not only to secure a better future for themselves,
but also to make positive contributions to
their countries and communities. While the
programme continually expands and evolves,
the fundamental aim remains the same: to
enable academically gifted but financially
challenged students to benefit from the
educational opportunities we offer.
External support for our scholarships programme
plays a key role in its on-going success and our
partnerships with donors, whether individuals,
businesses or charities, is vital. We continue to
work with existing partners, such as Santander
Universities, to diversify ways in which students
can be supported, with new awards aimed
at encouraging greater international student
travel and financing entrepreneurial initiatives.
Attracting further funding from outside of the
University is essential to expand the reach of the
scholarships scheme and we shall welcome more
partnerships in the coming year.
Within the University, our Scholarships
Team continues to improve the scholarship
application process and to expand our range
of awards. We look forward to 2014/15 being
another successful year and to welcoming new
students and new partners to the Universitys
Scholarship Scheme.

SUPPORTING EXCELLENCE IN NEED

EDUCATION TRANSFORMING
FUTURES
Education has an unrivalled ability to change
lives, both for those who have the opportunity
to study, and for those who benefit from
their knowledge. Making knowledge widely
accessible was one of the founding principles
of the Royal Polytechnic Institution, University
of Westminsters original incarnation. It is
a principle that we adhere to today, with
a student body that is incredibly diverse in
culture, nationality and background.
Philanthropy has played a vital role in
supporting our students from the very
beginning, when Quintin Hogg made his
educational endowment to establish the Regent
Street Polytechnic. We remain dedicated to
making it possible for outstanding students
who could not access higher education
without our help to realise their potential.
Our students explore the fields of architecture
and the built environment, creative industries,
business, law, social sciences, humanities
and science and technology. Our staff and
alumni have made their mark in many fields,
and our current students will go on to shape
aspects of professional life in the future and
change lives for the better, both in the UK and
internationally. Now you can play a key role
in that change.

ONE OF THE LEADING UNIVERSITY


SCHOLARSHIPS SCHEME IN THE UK
Today, about 2,000 students at the University
benefit from scholarships every year. Our
scholarships scheme has been praised for
its diverse, flexible and innovative approach

to supporting students. A scrupulous award


process based on clear criteria is followed by
continual pastoral care for beneficiary students.
The schemes success has been recognised
by the Award for Outstanding Support for
Overseas Students from the Times Higher
Education magazine.

HELP SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS


In 2013/14 we had to turn down 3,500
scholarship applicants. We want to address
this by providing more scholarships each year,
and we need philanthropic support to achieve
that goal.
Now more than ever, maintaining our ability
to change lives through access to higher
education will depend on philanthropic support
for scholarships. By helping us to extend the
scholarships scheme, you will be providing
opportunities for a diverse and vibrant student
community. You will be changing lives and
enabling them to improve the lives of many
others, at a time of uncertainty for all, and when
financial limits may prevent many promising
students from pursuing higher education.

Professor Moorad Choudhry


In 2011 the Professor Moorad Choudhry
was set up in support of Westminster Business
School undergraduate students from the UK.
The scholarship is awarded to two scholars
every three years. The scholarship has been
made possible through the generosity of
Professor Moorad Choudhry, who graduated
in 1988 with a BA Honours in Social Sciences
from the Polytechnic of Central London, the
University of Westminsters predecessor.
Professor Choudhry is a finance specialist and
author whose career has spanned the banking
industry and academia. This is what he told us
about what has motivated him to support next
generations of students:
Coming to study at Central London
Poly, as it was then known, was one of
the better decisions Ive made in my life.
I especially remember the friendly atmosphere
and the excellence of the academic staff.
Im proud to be associated with the University
of Westminster.

PARTNERS AND DONORS

We are grateful for a generous donation


from Mr Saman Palihawadana towards this
scholarship established in memory of his
father Sarath Palihawadana.

Santander Universities
Global Division
The relationship that Santander has had with
the university sector since 1996 has established
itself as one of its hallmarks. Already more
than 880 academic institutions receive
support from the bank for the implementation
of study programmes, teaching projects,
research, and activities to promote the use
of new technologies on campus, or promote
the relationship between universities and
businesses, among others. Santander supports
the university community more than any other

Santander
As part of a much larger donation, Santander
Bank has given the University 30,000
towards the Santander Internship programme.
The pilot scheme was launched in 2012/13
to give undergraduate and postgraduate
students the opportunity to do a three month
paid internship with a small to medium sized
business. This pilot scheme proved such a
success that Santander has increased the
number of internships with a 30,000 donation
to the University. In addition, 5,000 has
been given for the specific aim of encouraging
entrepreneurship and enterprise at the
University. We are grateful to Santander for
their continued and generous support.

Media and Diversity


We are pleased to have been given a
substantial donation by the Open Society
Foundation to support students from developing
countries to study the Media and Diversity
MA. In addition, the Media Diversity
Institute has kindly offered funds from its
Egyptian programme funded by the Swedish
International Development cooperation agency
to enable Egyptian students to study the same
course. We are very grateful to all three
organisations for their generosity.

Windle Trust International


We are happy to announce that the Windle
Trust International has given a significant
donation to dedicate to Masters-level
scholarships for refugees, the displaced and
other communities emerging from conflict. Our
first students under this collaboration will begin
at Westminster in January 2014.

useful application tips, please see the back of
the brochure. You may also find the next section
on Frequently Asked Questions helpful.

You should check the specific academic criteria


required for the scholarship you are applying

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Can I use the same application form if I


apply for two scholarships?
Yes, please use the same application form
even if you wish to apply for two scholarships.
However, please remember that the criteria
for many of our scholarships includes financial
need. This means you need to think carefully
about whether your level of financial need is
assistance with tuition fees or whether you truly
require a full scholarship (if you are eligible to
apply for one). If you apply for tuition fee only
scholarships and full scholarships, it will be
assumed by the Scholarships Assessment and
Awarding Group (SAAG) that you are not truly
financially dependent on a full scholarship to
take up your place on the course.
2. What should I write in my statement
of support?
The statement of support is your opportunity
to present yourself to the Scholarships Office
and demonstrate why it is that you deserve
a scholarship to study at the University of
Westminster. In writing your supporting
statement, you should seek to describe the
qualities that you think make you an outstanding
applicant in a highly competitive process.
Most of our scholarships are awarded on one
or more of three main criteria:
i) academic excellence
ii) financial need
iii) development potential (for international
students only).

14

Your supporting statement should therefore


address:
How you meet the criteria
What you expect to gain from the opportunity
of studying your course
How you intend to use your experience and
knowledge in the future
Your professional experience and
career aspirations.
UK/EU undergraduate students
If you are a UK/EU student applying for an
undergraduate scholarship, the supporting
statement should make a case for what you
can bring to the University in addition to your
academic capabilities and what makes you a
suitable scholarship candidate. Please note that
we are looking to the future, so simply listing
past achievements is not sufficient.
International students applying for full
scholarships only
In addition to demonstrating academic
excellence and financial need, if you are
an international student applying for one
of our full scholarships, you also need to
evidence development potential and explain,
specifically and in detail, how you envisage
using the knowledge and experience gained
from your course in the development of your
community/region/nation upon your return to
your home country after completing the degree.

3. Who should write my reference and what


should it contain?
The reference letter should be written by
someone of stature who knows you well in
either an academic or professional capacity,
ie a teacher, lecturer or employer.

Choose your referee carefully. Think of the


letter as an integral part of a package that will
present an accurate and complete picture of
you, your background and why it is felt that you
are eligible for a scholarship.
The reference should, where possible,
be written on the headed paper of the
school, university, organisation or company
and be included with your application in a
sealed envelope.
The reference provided as part of your
scholarship application should be written
specifically in support for your scholarship
application, ie you should not use the
same reference that you supplied for your
admission application.
The referee should provide their views on why
your academic abilities, personal qualities
and financial circumstances would make you
a suitable recipient for a scholarship. It may
therefore be useful to discuss your plans with
your referee now, before you apply, so that
they are more fully able to comment on your
plans, goals and capabilities.
4. As an international scholarship applicant, do
I have to pay the 4,000 deposit before I know
if I have been awarded a scholarship?
The Universitys deposits scheme for
overseas students means that if you hold an
unconditional offer you will be required to
make a payment of 4,000 before you are
given a student visa support letter, which may
be used to apply for your visa for entry to the
United Kingdom.

As a scholarship applicant, you can wait until


you know the outcome of your scholarship
application before paying this deposit. It is
recommended that you check with the British
Embassy how long it takes to process visas
during the June to August period. If you are
awarded a full scholarship or a full tuition
fee scholarship you will not be required to
pay this deposit and the admissions offices
will be notified of this. If you are awarded a
scholarship which awards part of the tuition
fee costs (ie 2,000 fee award or 50 per cent
fee award) you will still be required to pay this
4,000 deposit.
If you feel that you will come to study at the
University regardless of whether or not you are
awarded a scholarship, we would encourage
you to pay the deposit as soon as possible.
If you are later awarded a scholarship that
includes full tuition fee costs, you will be entitled
to a refund of this deposit.
5. As an international student do I need to
provide evidence of my English language
competency?
Whether or not you need to provide IELTS/
TOEFL results as part of your scholarship
application depends on the type of offer
you have received from the University of
Westminster following your admission
application.
If you have been offered an unconditional
place on your chosen course then you do not
need to submit IELTS/TOEFL results as part of
your scholarship application.
If your offer is conditional and one of the
conditions relates to demonstrating your English
language competency, then we would expect
the IELTS/TOEFL results to be included in your
scholarship application.

15

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you are required to provide IELTS/TOEFL


results with your scholarship application, but
your test date is after the deadline date for
scholarship applications, you can send the
IELTS/TOEFL results to us, separately, at a
later date (as long as they are received before
31 July 2014).
6. Who decides whether or not I am awarded
a scholarship and how will I find out the result?
All decisions regarding the awarding of
scholarships are made by the Universitys
Scholarships Assessment and Awarding Group.
This comprises academic staff from across
the University and non-academic staff from
many departments including the Scholarships
Office, Recruitment, Admissions and Marketing
Services, the Student Advice Service and
partners. All are very experienced and make
the awarding decision based on the criteria for
the scholarship and the case you make.
Once decisions have been made, we will let
you know as soon as possible by email.
Please note the Scholarships Assessment
and Awarding Group will not undertake or
participate in any individual correspondence
with you, either before or after the decision
has been made. The decision of the panel is
final, and not open to appeal. Lobbying a
member of the panel will make you ineligible
for a scholarship.
7. What happens if I am awarded a
scholarship?
If you are awarded a scholarship you will be
informed by email initially. On confirmation
of receipt of the email, you will be sent an
official letter from the Scholarships Office
giving you the details of your award. All official
arrangements will be made with you directly.

16

You will be required to formally accept the


scholarship and its conditions by signing the
contract that is sent with your awarding letter.
During and after your period of study you may
be asked to participate in promotional activities
for the University. This may include receptions
and social events, testimonial or publicity
articles or even assisting with activities in your
home country.
During each year as a scholarship student,
you will also be expected to participate in our
volunteering scheme (up to a maximum of 40
hours of voluntary work per year). Students
awarded joint scholarships with International
Students House are expected to do ten hours
per month voluntary work there.
The continuation of all scholarships is based
on satisfactory academic performance, the
exact nature of which will be described in your
award letter and Terms of Agreement.
If you are a UK/EU undergraduate student,
we require all modules to be passed and an
average of 60 per cent overall to be achieved.
If you are a postgraduate student you may be
required by the Scholarships Office to submit a
report from your tutor or supervisor. This report
may be requested after each year if you are a
PhD student, or after Semester One if you are
a Masters student.
8. What do I do if I decide to defer my
admission or change my course after I have
been awarded the scholarship?
The scholarship must be used for the academic
course and year for which it was applied. In the
event of awardees deferring the year of entry
the scholarship is considered cancelled and the
deferring student must re-apply.

Changes of course may in some circumstances


be considered.

12. Where can I find my University of


Westminster reference number?

9. What happens if my scholarship application


is rejected?

Your eight digit reference number can be


found at the top of your admissions offer letter
or email correspondence from the University
and must be included on your scholarship
application. We will not consider applications
that do not include this number. If you are
applying for an undergraduate degree, you
can also use your UCAS application number
found on all UCAS correspondence.

You will be informed of your rejection as


soon as possible by email. In the event of you
receiving a rejection email, you cannot reapply
for a Westminster scholarship for a period of
two calendar years. For example, if you are
unsuccessful with an application for September
2014, the next time you can apply is for a
September 2016 scholarship. If you still want
to attend the course, you will have to pay the
4,000 fee deposit to get your Tier 4 visa.
10. Which countries are considered under
the region specific scholarships? Or the
developing country title?
Please refer to the appendices at the back of
this brochure for the countries included under
specific regions.
11. Where can I find information about PhD
scholarships/studentships?

If you require any further information or


have any more questions please contact
the Scholarships Office at scholarships@
westminster.ac.uk
13. What is meant by a closed scholarship?
Closed scholarships are awarded to candidates
nominated by the relevant partner organisation.
We do not accept direct applications for these
scholarships. If you have any questions, please
contact the partner organisation directly.

The only PhD/research scholarship offered and


administered via the Universitys Scholarships
Office is the Cavendish Research PhD
Scholarship for research related to Science
and Technology. All other PhD/research
scholarships/studentships are managed by the
Universitys Research Office. For information
visit westminster.ac.uk/courses/researchdegrees/research-studentships. If you have
any questions regarding funding opportunities
for PhD study in subjects other than Science
and Technology, please contact the University
Research Office at researchadmissions@
westminster.ac.uk.

INTERNATIONAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS

The minimum academic requirement for these


scholarships is a First Class Honours degree
or international equivalent unless otherwise
stated. These scholarships are not open to MBA
applicants who may only apply for the MBA
part fee scholarship.

FULL SCHOLARSHIPS
Full scholarships are the most generous
scholarships offered by the University of
Westminster Scholarship Programme. We offer
one scholarship for each type of full scholarship
below unless otherwise stated. Each scholarship
is therefore extremely competitive. These
scholarships are for a full-time one year Masters
programme only and include a full tuition fee
award, accommodation, living allowance and
flights to and from London.
You must be living overseas. If you are currently
residing in the UK, you will not be considered
for these scholarships. You are also not eligible
if youve studied previously in a developed
country. Please note that all full scholarship
recipients will be expected to return to their
home country at the end of their Masters
course. The University will not support or
sponsor any extended stay in the UK.

The African Prisons Project Scholarship


provides a full scholarship to a member of
prison staff from an African country.
The African Prisons Project sees education
as a leading factor in driving sustainable
penal reform across Africa. Nelson
Mandela, who was himself imprisoned
for twenty seven years in South Africa,
famously wrote Education is the most
powerful weapon which you can use to
change the world.
That is why our work, in collaboration with
the University of Westminster and their
support with the provision of scholarships
is so vitally important for APP, the prison
services that we work with and the
beneficiaries of change who remain
detained in unimaginable conditions.

After ten years of experience as a


journalist in Brazil, I felt it was time
to enhance my knowledge with a
Masters degree. Unfortunately, most
Brazilian universities are not analysing
the innovations in media markets. The
scholarship has given me the opportunity to
gain the knowledge I was seeking.
At the University of Westminster I had
access to the extensive experience of the
academic staff as well as lectures from
external speakers.
Moreover my studies at Westminster
permitted me to extend my learning
experience beyond the academic setting
by providing a global classroom which
gave me the opportunity to compare the
practice of the media production in different
countries and continents.
After graduation, I returned to Rio de
Janeiro. I am sure that my experiences at
University of Westminster were essential not
only to make me a better professional but
also to improve the media practice in my
home country.

A higher level of legal education has


always been a dream of mine and until the
grant of the Sylvia Pankhurst Scholarship
this dream has been far away from reality.
The scholarship has given me the quality
education that I couldnt afford and the
great value that is acquired by living in a
heterogeneous student body.
Alongside the quality legal education
given in the University of Westminster, I
have learned to adapt to different cultures
and had the opportunity to share the rich
Ethiopian culture. It was a great opportunity
to meet like-minded people and helped me
have a global perspective on issues.
I would like to take this opportunity to say
thank you for making my dream come true.

UK/EU UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS

The Scholarships Office offers two main


schemes for UK/EU undergraduate students:
the National Scholarship Programme and the
Westminster Undergraduate Scheme. To be
eligible to apply for our scholarships, you must
first have been offered either a conditional
or unconditional place on an undergraduate
course at the University of Westminster. Most
offers of scholarships will be made conditional
on students achieving required grades, which
is usually a higher standard than the entry
requirements for the undergraduate course.
Please note that expectations of academic
excellence and creativity may vary slightly
from course to course, depending on course
entry standards. This is to ensure that
scholarships are fairly spread across the
Universitys courses and not clustered in
high entry qualification areas.
For UK/EU undergraduate scholarships
The University has an online application
process that should be available to use from
December 2013 onwards. However, please
note that decisions on these applications will
not be made until after the deadline date in
April. For more information on the online
application process, please visit our website

NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS
With the introduction of higher tuition fees in
September 2012, the government set up the
National Scholarship Programme. Scholarships
offered under this scheme are only available
to UK or EU students with a household income
of less than 25,000 per annum. National
Scholarships are limited in number, and
applicants are selected through a nomination
route. This means you must be enrolled at the
University of Westminster and have your loan in
place through Student Finance England (SFE) in
order to be considered.
As 2014/15 is the final year of the National
Scholarship Programme, awards will now
be allocated to students by the University in
accordance with strict criteria. This means
students cannot apply directly for the National
Scholarship. Demonstration of the achievement
and potential for excellence in their studies will
remain one of the core criteria for the award
to ensure parity with previous recipients. Once
successful students have been nominated, they
will be advised in writing with details of the
award and the options on how they can receive
the award.
AMOUNT: A total of 6,000 over a three-year
undergraduate course.
ELIGIBILITY: You must have Westminster
as your firm choice on UCAS
and hold an offer for a full-time
undergraduate degree (conditional
or unconditional) at the University.
The scholarship will be renewed
each year subject to satisfactory
academic performance and
confirmation of household income.
CRITERIA: Academic excellence and/or
creative potential and financial
need.

The Helena Kennedy
Foundation exists to
overcome social injustice
by providing financial bursaries, mentoring
and support to disadvantaged students from
the further and adult education sectors,
enabling them to complete their studies in
higher education and move on successfully
into employment.
The Foundation does this by taking social
action to increase the number and enhance
the value of bursaries awarded each year. It
encourages social mobility by increasing the
range and types of student support available,

Dr Maud Tyler, who retired as Deputy ViceChancellor in December 2006 after 35 years at
the University, has made a generous donation.
This scholarship is open to those who have a
specific or hidden disability.

particularly for talented students from nontraditional backgrounds.


We couldnt do this without the support of
University of Westminster who have been
supporting us for a number of years and
generously offered several scholarships in
2013. We hope we can carry on offering
more bursaries to students from the University
who very much need the support.

UK/EU UnderGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS

The generous scholarship programme at


the University of Westminster is not only
a life-line for me but it has also allowed
me to fulfil a dream that few students have
given due consideration to - avoiding
being hugely in debt after my studies. In
giving me the added push to go above
and beyond the minimum pass mark
in my studies I have gladly embraced
the challenge of giving 100% in every
exam, presentation, essay and project.
After all, if I managed to be successful in
acquiring this scholarship despite the fierce
competition, then I have enough potential
to strive for nothing less than the best. The
fact that there is the inherent requirement
to volunteer also provides a rather intuitive
dimension to the scholarship since it
implicitly recognises that experience in the
job market is just as valuable as attaining
a degree. I hope that this programme will
continue to grow from strength to strength
each year and I look forward to giving
back to this University as much as it has
given to me.
