New Glyndŵr University Postgraduate Scholarship
23 July 2010
Graduates of Welsh universities and those living in Wales are being offered scholarships to undertake postgraduate study and help further their career options.
Following on from a similar scheme that ran for the first time last year, students enrolling on postgraduate courses at Glyndŵr University in September will receive 50% off their course fees.
The scholarship is open to all Glyndŵr University graduates, graduates of other Welsh universities and graduates who have been domiciled in Wales for three years prior to their postgraduate studies. Graduates must hold an honours degree or equivalent. Other terms and conditions apply.
Dr Peter Heard, head of the Graduate School at Glyndŵr University, said undertaking postgraduate study had the potential to provide graduates with an edge over others in an increasingly competitive employment market.
“The advanced knowledge, understanding and expertise gained from postgraduate course really can set you apart when it comes to finding employment,” Peter said. “With the UK experiencing high levels of unemployment, there has never been a better – or more important – time to gain that competitive advantage and help further your career prospects.”
Both full and part-time courses are covered by the 2010/11 Glyndŵr University postgraduate scholarship, including all MA, MSc, MBA, MRes, PGCert, PGDip, MPhil and PhD qualifications.
The University offers hundreds of courses in a range of subjects, from Art and Design, Built Environment, Business and Education through to Engineering, Science and the Environment, Sport and Exercise Sciences and Youth and Community.
