How to apply
Applicants must meet the usual academic admission criteria, and already hold an offer of a place on the MSc Exploration Geophysics course: but thereafter follow the link* to the University's WP Scholarships process.
A separate application, requiring further personal information, is required: the successful candidate will be chosen by the WP Team, and informed in August.
[* the value of awards as stated at that link is £5,000 (i.e. the Leeds Masters Scholarship 2019 awards), but by specifying the MSc Exploration Geophysics and the Marsden Alumnus scholarship, the award value will be £9,000.]
Number of scholarships available
The Marsden Alumnus scholarship is funded by an endowment from Dr. Dave Marsden, a distinguished alumnus from the early years of the MSc Exploration Geophysics programme.
