Edinburgh Business School scholarship scheme

On-Campus MBA programmes

A maximum of 5 scholarships of up to £3000 is available each academic year for students accepted onto our part-time MBA programme at our UK, Edinburgh campus.

These are awarded at the discretion of the Edinburgh Business School Scholarship committee on the basis of prior academic achievement, financial hardship, and the use to which the qualification will be put by the scholar.

Scholarship applications can only be made once a formal application to the part-time MBA programme has been received and an unconditional offer has been issued by the Edinburgh Business School Admissions Office.

Scholarship applications are considered for the October and January intake of each year and applications should reach the Edinburgh Business School by no later than the 1st August and the 1st November for each respective intake.

Applicants wishing to take advantage of the scholarship scheme are encouraged to submit their application to the part-time MBA programme well in advance of the scholarship application deadlines.
