Postgraduate Scholarships (and fee waivers)

For this coming year, SimVis has a number of Scholarships and Fee-Waivers available for all of our postgraduate programmes:

The scholarship application deadline is the 31st of May.

Fee-waivers are available to Scottish and EU students (sadly not rUK students), and cover the academic fees for one year of full-time study. Limited numbers are still available on all masters programmes, with the final tranche of awards to be made in June after UG degree results become available.

A selection of scholarships are available – these mostly provide contributions towards the cost of fees, and include the International Welcome Scholarships, which provide a partial scholarship forinternational students.

This year we are also delighted to be able to offer the MGAlba/Learn Gaelic Scholarship to one student on the MSc Serious Games & VR programme. This scholarship covers the full cost of UK/EU fees – and is open to applicants from around the world. If awarded to an international student, the scholarship would provide a substantial award towards the international fees. The successful applicant will have an interest in the use of games to support

Note that all eligible applicants will be considered automatically for SFC fee-waivers, and there is no application process for these.

Scholarships for study at The Glasgow School of Art

The Glasgow School of Art is now accepting applications for the 2017/18 GSA Scholarships, and full details of the awards and the application process available on the GSA website.

Some of these scholarships are specifically for study at SimVis on our masters programmes in sound and visualisation – including international scholarships with awards of £2000 to support fees and living costs – and there are similar awards available for Scottish and EU students applying to the Postgraduate Welcome Scholarships.

Many thanks to local Post-Production specialists, Savalas, who have sponsored a new scholarship for students applying to our MDes Sound for the Moving Image. Savalas is Scotland’s largest audio-post facility, and was founded by 4 friends in 1998 on the back of a small bank loan and local authority grant that has become a well-established part of Scotland’s post-production community.  Without the initial financial commitment and endorsement, it would have been virtually impossible for the company to secure premises and literally get out of the bedroom. Savalas hope that this Scholarship will provide a similar level of support and acknowledgment to the successful applicant.

All scholarships, including the Savalas award, are being advertised to all GSA applicants, and can be applied for till the deadline of Wednesday 31st May 2017.
