Here at Manchester Metropolitan University, we like to support our international students, and one way we do that is by allocating over £200,000 of Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships.
Each scholarship is of a different value, depending on the type of course the student is studying, for example, for an undergraduate degree, the scholarship is worth £2,500, while for a postgraduate degree it is £3,000.
Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships are awarded on the basis of:
- Academic merit;
- What you hope to gain from the course you are taking; and
- What you plan to do after completing your course.
We are very proud of our Vice-Chancellor’s Scholars, and we hold an award evening where the Scholar’s get to meet members of MMU International, and the Vice-Chancellor himself.
This year’s Scholar’s Evening was held on Monday 17th February, and was a great success. Scholars, members of MMU International and the Board of Governors mingled over Prosecco while being entertained by a string trio from the Northern College of Music, who played a mix of classical and contemporary music. They then sat down to a dinner in the impressive new home of the School of Art, the Benzie Building. Everyone looked very smart and were awarded their certificates by the Vice-Chancellor; John Brookes.
Here are some of the pictures from the evening:
