About Scholarship: The University of Skövde has recently updated the name of the scholarship programme for master’s students it administrates. It will no longer be referred to as UHR Scholarships but the University of Skövde Masters Scholarships.
The University of Skövde awards some partial scholarships to students liable to pay tuition fees attending a master’s programme at our University.
The scholarships are partial tuition fee waivers (50% of the tuition fee). If you are granted, the amount will be automatically deducted from the tuition fee when you receive your invoice.
The scholarship is granted for one academic semester, but it can be extended to subsequent academic semesters provided that the student’s study results are satisfactory. The scholarship granting criterion is academic merit. The scholarships can only be awarded to tuition-paying students.
Please note that you have to be able to finance the remainder of the tuition fee yourself, and to cover all the living expenses during your stay in Sweden.
Applicants from outside the home country will often need to meet specific English language/other language requirements in order to be able to study there.
By what Criteria is Selection Made? The scholarship granting criterion is academic merits.
- Citizens of a country outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland.
- The master’s programme must be delivered on campus.
- Generally students can only be awarded a UHR scholarship if a master’s programme at the University of Skövde is chosen as first priority on University Admissions.
- You must have completed the application to the programme meeting all deadlines for the master’s first admission round. You must meet the entry requirements for the master’s programme you applied to, pay the application fee and the supporting documents must have been received before the deadline defined by University Admissions.
