    @TomTom023 I have it all mentioned in a previous thread but i'll copy and paste it for you:

    I'm from Ireland, so i'd be in the UK/EU category for the Media, Art and Design scholarship and not the International category.

    Here's the university's requirements:

    'For undergraduate students, we require all modules to be passed and an average of 60 per cent overall to be achieved for Gold level or full scholarships or full tuition fee waiver scholarships, or 55 per cent for Silver level or scholarships less than a full fee waiver. For first year students, the average is taken from six modules, the best and worst module being discounted. PhD or Masters students, at the request of the Scholarships Office, may be required to submit a report from your tutor or supervisor after each year. This report may be requested after each year in the case of a PhD student, or after semester one in the case of a Masters student.'

    That doesn't really say much but my GPA was 60.10% but I have a lot of work under my belt in music business. I run a not for profit organisation called BEAT Workshops where we run music technology courses for underprivillaged Irish students and asylum seekers and was awarded €20'000 seed capital in 2009. I've put this all down on my form and even though it said that multiple reference letters wouldn't be an advantage, I got one written for my academic performance by a lecturer and one from the college about my financial need and personal development. My lecturer knew mew better than most academic staff but wasn't able to cover my financial problems and the same goes for the college being able to talk about me as a person.

    They look at academic excellence, personal development and financial need of the applicant. No idea what makes you an ideal candidate but i'm guessing someone with high academic grades, trying to make a space for themselves in their respective industries and would contribute to the University and to their country when they return home. Also someone who has been in receipt of a grant and/or student assistance fund would have a higher chance but at the end of the day, each scholarship only examines certain aspects of the student's life.

    I hope that helps. I'll be back on this thread later. It's unlikely that I will get the scholarship but I tried my best.

    So so glad to know you .

    I am really nervous, too, waiting for an answer for the scholarship. Got an unconditional offer for MA Intl' Development Management but have not accepted it yet. I really need a scholarship to get there...

    Where are you from anyway?
    Fingers crossed we both get it

    Pls do let me know if you have any updates!!!!

    I had applied to full fee tuition waiver scholarship and today received an email around 3 pm UK time stating that I am not awarded the scholarship.

    I was wondering whether any of you guys also received an email today and around the same hours. I will also appreciate if you can state whether your decision is favorable or not.
