The scholarship is granted as a reduction of the tuition fee and is available to students who are self-funding with an international tuition fee of more than £9,000 for a single year of study only. Applications can be made by students who have received an offer of a place of study at the University.

Queen Margaret University is pleased to announce that a limited number of Santander Scholarships will be available to international students, up to the value of £5,000. Applications can be made by students who have received an offer of a place of study at the University. Please note that if you have already applied for a QMU Scholarship, we will also consider you for a Santander Scholarship and vice versa - there is no need to re-apply or to apply for both.

Please note that if you wish to apply for a scholarship award, you are strongly advised to apply for a place on the course of your choice as early as possible, as we will only consider applications from those holding an offer for a place of study.
