Quacquarelli Symonds, the education information and services company which publishes annual world university rankings, has announced that they are to fund two scholarships at Manchester Business School, the largest constituent department of the University of Manchester.
The two scholarships, which are being offered in partnership with QS’s World Grad School Tour, will be worth 50 per cent of the tuition fees for any masters program at MBS.
Rachel Tufft, head of postgraduate marketing at MBS, said the school’s mission was to “give everyone the opportunity to transform their lives and, in doing so, help them transform the organizations they work for and the wider communities in which they live.
“We will be looking for students who can contribute original thought and enrich the diverse academic and cultural profile of the masters class.
“We understand the financial strain that students face when considering further study and do not want this to be a barrier to applicants.”
To meet the criteria for the scholarship any candidate will have to have attended the QS World Grad School Tour and be predicted to achieve at least a 2:1 in their undergraduate degree.
The University of Manchester was ranked as being the 33rd best in the world and the 8th best in the UK in the rankings most recently published by QS.
