Please note: Applications for this scholarship are now closed, for more information please contact the Development Trust Office.

As a Harper Adams graduate you could qualify for a 50% fee waiver when progressing on to a full-time taught postgraduate course. This scheme is designed to promote and reward academic excellence.

This award is intended to support those from less advantaged or under-represented backgrounds who achieve highly at Undergraduate level to progress to Postgraduate level study, in line with our Access and Participation Plan aspirations. We will award a fee waiver for those full-time UK, Ireland, Isle of Man & Channel Isle Undergraduate students who achieved either a First Class or Second Class Honours Degree from Harper Adams University in 2020/21, having completed at least three years of full-time study based at Harper Adams University. The fee waiver is available for MSc and MProf awards studied full-time in 2021/22.

The level of fee waiver is as follows:

  • 50% fee waiver for those who achieved a First Class Honours Degree
  • 30% fee waiver for those who achieved a Second Class Honours Degree (Upper or Lower Divisions)

Students must also meet the following eligibility criteria intended to improve access to postgraduate level study by under-represented groups, as defined by the University’s Access and Participation Plan:

  • students from areas of low higher education participation, low household income and/or low socioeconomic status
  • students recorded as black and minority ethnicity
  • mature students
  • disabled students in receipt of the Disabled Students’ Allowance
  • care leavers

Studies by Negotiation and Master of Research programmes are ineligible for this award. Part-time Undergraduates are also ineligible for this award. The discretionary award is subject to a satisfactory reference from the Undergraduate Course Manager or Course Tutor. All applications for this scholarship should be made before the course application deadline passes. Applications received after that date will not be considered. Entry cannot be deferred. Any study required beyond 2021/22, including for students studying part-time or deferred in 2022/23 or later, is ineligible for this discretionary award.
