Internal Scholarships

Funded scholarships - MSc Sport

The School of Sport at York St John University is an ambitious value-led school founded on the principles of social justice, the right to play, putting the performer before the performance, a focus on the healthy athlete, stressing participation over consumerism, intellectual generosity and holding to account those who seek elitism rather than sporting excellence.

In partnership with Nestle/Roundtree Foundation, we are pleased to offer four MSc by Research studentships (Nestle Scholarship). The value of the scholarship will cover tuition fees for full-time UK and EU students (maximum award is £4,250).

While applicants are free to propose a topic for the MSc by Research, we are especially keen to support research that aligns with values of the School of Sport. The proposed research must also be aligned with the research expertise and interests of staff within the school.

The studentships will be awarded on a competitive basis and subject to the applicant satisfying standard York St John University application processes for MSc by Research.

All applicants must have (or be about to complete) a relevant degree (at least a 2:1 Honours).

To apply, please visit our Application Links page, and apply via the MSc by Research link, expressing within your application form that you would be interested in a scholarship opportunity by stating such within your research proposal and discussing this where appropriate during your interview.

Application for enrolment will need to be completed by 31th July, 2017.
