As part of our commitment to a Green Future, we want to make sure that the most capable and committed candidates from Low and Middle Income Countries have the opportunity to study at the University of Exeter - becoming the students of today who shape tomorrow’s world: 

  • learning about the scientific, human, social and cultural issues which are involved in the vital field of sustainability;  
  • being equipped with the skills for a ‘greener’ economy and the imagination to provide solutions for a sustainable society;
  • developing their global mind set, combining culturally inclusive behaviour and environmentally sound practices;
  • upon completion of their studies, contributing to the economic and social development of their home countries.

Together with generous philanthropic gifts from a number of like-minded donors, the University of Exeter is offering up to 9 ‘Green Futures’ Postgraduate Taught Scholarships for study on one of our eligible Masters programmes, including The Exeter MBA, in 2022/23.  These are aimed at exceptional international candidates who would otherwise be unable to pursue their sustainability academic and career goals and who will increase our University community’s diversity and inclusion. The awards cover the full tuition fees and a stipend for living costs.

You can apply for one of these awards if you:

  • are classified as an International student for fees purposes;
  • are a citizen/passport holder of a Low or Middle Income Country (eligible countries appear in the first three columns);
  • already hold an offer to study an eligible Masters programme from the table above at the University of Exeter in the 2022/23 academic year; and
  • have not previously studied or worked in a High Income country.

Further information about how to apply can be found here.  Deadlines for applications 1st April 2022.

Please note, you can apply for more than one scholarship, but if you are awarded more than one, the greater award will be given. A bursary can be awarded in addition to a scholarship.
