UK Huxley Scholarships for International Students at University of Brighton
The criteria for awarding the Huxley scholarships are primarily merit-based.
- Merit does not necessarily have to mean academic merit but could also be interpreted to include outstanding performance in a variety of spheres.
- The strongest candidates will be those demonstrating an understanding of knowledge of the school’s research expertise.
In order to be eligible to apply for a Huxley scholarship you must be a new, full-time self-funding international masters degree student on one of the following courses.
- Biomedical Sciences MSc
- Industrial Pharmaceutical Sciences MSc
- Pharmacology MSc
- Bioscience MRes
- Ecology MRes
- Chemistry MRes
- Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences MRes
Existing international students are not eligible unless starting a new masters programme.
Students studying for masters degrees at University of Brighton partner colleges are not eligible for these awards.
Recipients of this award must not hold or expect to hold any other University of Brighton scholarships.
How to apply
For the 2014 academic year, you should indicate in your personal statement (part of your course application) that you wish to be considered for a Huxley scholarship.
You should include information on the type of research you would like to engage in and explain how your choice of research project fits with the school’s expertise and with your own career plans (maximum 1,000 words). You may not always be able to study the project that you highlight in your personal statement as this will depend on the available resources and expertise within the university.
If you have already sent in your course application, you can submit a separate statement to [email protected].
Successful students will be notified by email.
