Masters study all wrapped up
If you'd like to study for a Masters at Essex in 2015-16 but are worried
about the cost, our Postgraduate Support Scheme offers two ways of making
it much more affordable.
Coaching for Academic Success
We have 100 places available on our coaching programme.
In return for providing coaching to other students you will receive an award of
£10,000 to cover your tuition fees (any remaining money will go towards campus
accommodation or a stipend).
You'll work towards an endorsed certificate in Coaching from the Institute
of Leadership and Management. You will gain skills which are highly valued by
graduate employers while, at the same time, providing invaluable support to other
students to help them obtain better degrees, employment and study opportunities.
We have 32 places available on our Work-based Project scheme. You
will undertake a work-based project relevant to your chosen subject and in return you
will receive an award of £10,000 to cover your tuition fees (and any remaining money
will go towards campus accommodation or a stipend).
We will support you to find a suitable project. The number of credits attached to
the assessment of the work-based project will vary between departments.
Please get in touch if you've got any questions about the scheme.
