Do you want to change the world?

Could 90% off your tuition fees transform your life?

Would you like support to positively impact the world?

Here at Loughborough University London we believe that our students must help to solve the world's challenges and problems.  Our Global Excellence Scholarship backs this commitment to positive change.  It offers applicants from around the world the opportunity to apply for a 90% tuition fee scholarship for any full-time master's programme at Loughborough University London.

Our Global Excellence Scholarship prioritises innovators and disruptive thinkers who want to create genuine and lasting change.  Whether you want to start a business, become an activist, take on a campaign or develop your own social enterprise, this scholarship is for you.

Can you demonstrate disruptive thinking and a commitment to change in one of our three strategic themes Climate Change, Vibrant and Inclusive Communities or Sport, Health and Wellbeing?  You don’t need a polished pitch or a fully formed idea.  You just need to show us you have the academic qualities and personal attributes to bring new perspectives to our community.

To apply for our Global Excellence Scholarship you must:

  • Be an offer holder at Loughborough University London – this scholarship is not open to applicants for courses on our East Midlands Campus
  • Demonstrate disruptive thinking and a commitment to change in one of our three strategic themes ‘Climate Change, Vibrant and Inclusive Communities and Wellbeing’

The award is highly competitive and will be given at the discretion of the Dean with the support of the Senior Leadership Team.  The Dean’s decision is final.

Applicants must complete an application form outlining how they meet the criteria.  No further documentation is required or will be reviewed.  Shortlisted candidates may be required to complete a video interview.
