£5,000 UEA Step-Up Scholarship

Eligibility: for UEA graduates who complete in 2016 and earn a minimum 2.1 classification in their undergraduate degree.  These suit three types of student profile:  

  • Firstly, current final year students in UEA studying outside the Business School. UEA graduates in any ‘non business’ discipline are eligible to apply for a scholarship in one of the Applied Career Courses (MSc).  These provide practical career relevant study for people expecting to take up management roles early in their career.

Qualifying NBS graduates are eligible to apply for specific postgraduate courses that include the suite of Academic and Professional Courses (MSc), MSc Enterprise and Business Creation and MSc Brand Leadership.  Academic and Professional Courses are for graduates seeking advanced level research skills, and for people considering further steps in higher education, such as a PhD.  MSc Enterprise and Business Creation prepares students considering starting a business.  MSc Brand Leadership support students seeking a career working with creative strategies to develop brands.
  • Finally, current final year UEA students graduating with a degree in a ‘non business’ discipline but with strong numerical content*. Non Business School UEA graduates with a numerical background in their undergraduate studies are eligible to apply for a postgraduate degree from either the Academic and Professional Courses or the Applied Career Courses.  These are for suitable for graduates seeking to understand strategic management challenges in the context of advanced level research skills, and for people considering further steps in higher education, e.g. PhD.

* The depth of numerical content in a non business degree will be reviewed during the application process; any student with a degree in disciplines such as economics, psychology, physics, engineering and maths (with modules in areas such as statistics, maths or accounting) should be eligible for entry to one of the MSc Academic and Professional Courses or for entry to one of the MSc Applied Career Courses.
