University of Kent's Brussels School of International Studies

Applications are invited for two scholarships for politics students
wishing to begin their studies at the University of Kent's Brussels
School of International Studies in January 2009.

Successful candidates will be registered at the University of Kent as
full-time students on one of the five politics programmes offered at
UKB (listed below) and will receive payment to cover 50% of their
tuition fees (€6845 in 2008/9).

These scholarships are open to students of all nationalities and are
valid for the following programmes:

MA in International Relations

MA in International Conflict Analysis

MA in International Political Economy

MA in European Public Policy

MA in Political Strategy and Communication

In order to be considered for the scholarship, candidates must both
apply for admission to one of these masters programmes and submit a
separate scholarship application, no later than the closing date of 15
October 2008.

To submit an application for admission to an eligible MA programme,
please follow the instructions as detailed on the following webpage:

Applicants should normally have obtained, or be about to obtain, a
relevant undergraduate degree, with an overall First or Upper Second
Class Honours result, or equivalent. No application for admission is
considered complete until all supporting documents have been received
by the university.

Once you have submitted your application to study at the University of
Kent's Brussels School of International Studies (with all the required
documentation), in order to apply for the scholarship, you should send
a letter/email to confirming your wish to be
considered for a scholarship and explaining why you believe you should
be awarded one. To help you decide what to write, you should be aware
that the Scholarships Board is looking for academic excellence as well
as academic potential. If it helps, imagine that you are standing in
front of the members of the Board and have one chance to tell them
about yourself and why you want the scholarship.

For politics students starting in January 2009, your scholarship
application must be received no later than 17h00 CET on the closing
date of 15 October 2008.

Successful candidates will be informed of the results by Friday 21
November 2008.
