Guidance Notes For Applicants

1. What do the scholarships offer?

The scholarships aim to provide opportunities for independent

demonstrated both academic excellence and the potential to become
leaders, decision-makers and opinion formers in their own country.
Upon completion of their studies in the UK, scholars are expected to
return to their home country to resume their studies or work there.
Subject to satisfactory progress, the scholarships lead to the award
of a master’s degree.

The scholarships are available for study for LLM in Human Rights Law,
MA in International Relations, MA in Social & Global Justice, MA in
European & Global Politics , MA in International Security and
Terrorism, MA Diplomacy, MA Politics and Contemporary History, MA
Critical Theory and Politics.

Each scholarship provides twelve months’ tuition fees at the
University of Nottingham, a stipend to cover living costs (for one
person only) and return air travel from the scholar’s home country.

2. Who is eligible to apply?

The scholarships are open to applicants from Indonesia, Jordan and
Syria.

Applicants will normally be expected:
to be nationals of, and normally resident in, the selected country
during the academic year in which they apply for the award;
applicants who are temporarily out of the country (for a total period
of less than three consecutive months) may be treated as being
resident;
already hold (or expect to hold by the time of taking up the award) a
degree of an equivalent standard to at least a good UK second-class
Honours degree;
to have passed an appropriate English language test by the time of
taking up the award;
to return to their home country at the end of their scholarship
period to continue their studies/ work there.
not to have already received or be currently receiving financial
benefit from a previous HMG funded scholarship;
