Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for University of Huddersfield Graduates
Research degrees can represent a natural progression for the best graduates. They offer a valuable opportunity to build on promise and realise potential.
The advantages are well known. You add to your knowledge and skills and use them to the full. You enhance your CV. You do important work that improves not just your own prospects but those of society as a whole.
Yet for some students there is also a downside. Even for the most gifted graduates in the country, the thought of additional fees can sometimes act as a powerful disincentive.
At the University of Huddersfield we see this as a waste of academic excellence, which is why we have launched the Vice Chancellor's Scholarship that aims to provide the best students with free research degrees.
