How to apply

Register your interest in the scholarship through the postgraduate application system when you accept our offer of a place on an eligible Masters course. If you applied through one of our overseas representatives, you will need to ask them to do this for you. You will only be able to accept one University of Sussex scholarship.

You must declare your interest in the scholarship via PG Apply before you register on your Masters degree.  For students starting their course in September 2020, please register for the scholarship before the end of September.  For students starting their course in January 2021, please register for the scholarship before the end of January.

Information about the scholarship will be included in your CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Study) for your visa application. If the scholarship information is not showing on your CAS or you want to register for the scholarship after you get your CAS, email pg.applicants@sussex.ac.uk (Postgraduate Admissions).

If you are awarded the Chancellors International Scholarship or the Chancellors International Business Scholarship, it is not possible to receive the Sussex Nigeria Scholarship, as you can only hold one Sussex scholarship.  We will always award the highest value award, so in this instance, the Sussex Nigeria Scholarship would be removed and your CAS updated to reflect this.
