Liverpool John Moores University International Scholarships





Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) will be awarding a range of generous international scholarships for students enrolling at the University in September 2016.

These prestigious scholarships take the form of tuition fee waivers and are available for outstanding international students applying for undergraduate courses, taught postgraduate programmes and research degrees.

Bursaries will also be available for students enrolling on the six week English for Undergraduate and Postgraduate Studies course offered by the University’s International Study Centre.


If you are an alumnus of LJMU you are entitled to a 15% fee reduction on our postgraduate programmes.

Am I eligible?
Scholarships are available to outstanding international students applying for an undergraduate course, taught postgraduate programmes and research degrees. International students studying on a distance learning course are not eligible to apply for international scholarships.
Five steps to apply for an LJMU international scholarship
  1. Submit a current English Language Test Score as part of your LJMU course application (unless you are exempt under for example UK Visas and Immigration guidelines).
  2. Complete an additional application form in order to be considered for International Scholarships. Scholarship applications will only be accepted after you have applied using an official course application form either via UCAS for undergraduate students or via our online application form.
  3. Use your unique student LJMU applicant ID number for the scholarship application form, those forms without this ID will not be accepted.
  4. Be sure to provide as much detail as you can about yourself, your ambitions for the future and what you hope to achieve while you are at LJMU. Include information about paid or voluntary work experience and how you plan to use your LJMU qualification and experience once you return home.
  5. A panel will review your application and make a decision on whether you will be awarded this financial support.

Before applying for a scholarship you need to consider that these scholarships only offer full and partial discount on tuition fees. You will still need to self-finance the balance of your tuition fee (if applicable), your accommodation, daily living and travel costs while you are in the UK.
A postgraduate scholarship application will be considered for both the LJMU Roscoe International Scholarship and the Developing Global Citizens Postgraduate Scholarship.

The closing date for LJMU scholarship applications is 5 June 2016.
