Ultimate Scholarship

Starting this year, we are for the first time able to offer scholarship opportunities for taught postgraduate courses. The scholarship would be for 50% of the course fees, meaning a saving of around £10,000.

Scholarships are open to applicants who:

  • are classed as Overseas students (i.e. not from the UK or European Union)
  • wish to take a taught postgraduate course (i.e. a Masters course or similar – undergraduate or research students are not eligible)
  • were not otherwise planning to apply
  • would make a significant impact on the ultimate programme
  • would demonstrate excellent Spirit of the Game

There is no fixed limit to the number of scholarships awarded, but they will only be offered to truly exceptional candidates. The aim is to recruit world class players who will impact the programme positively both on and off the pitch. Please contact the Director of Ultimate to discuss.

There is no deadline for scholarship applications other than the application deadlines for individual courses. All decisions will be made by the Director of Ultimate.

Please check out this Ultiworld article for more details, and a breakdown of what St Andrews might be able to offer you.
