Scholarships and Financial Aid

Note that students who are receiving other scholarships are still eligible for the FTMP partial scholarship. However, they should contact the relevant funding agency to confirm that receipt of the partial scholarship does not violate the terms and conditions of any other scholarships they are receiving in their fourth year.

Year 2 FTMP students who have been conferred their bachelor’s degree are eligible for full scholarships. Subject to satisfactory progress, a scholarship holder will receive a waiver of registration fees and tuition fees in addition to a monthly living stipend for a maximum period of 12 months. Year-2 students may also receive additional funding through research assistantship (RA), teaching assistantship (TA) or industry grants.
