Malmö University Master’s Scholarships

Malmö University

The deadline for submitting a MUMS application is on 15 January 2015.

Malmö University will award up to 30 scholarships to talented Master’s students who start their studies in September 2015. The scholarships cover 75 to 100 percent of the tuition fee for the student’s chosen programme.

Students who are awarded a scholarship for a two-year programme will retain their scholarship for the second year provided that they complete at least 45 credits (i.e. 75 percent) of their first year and meet requirements for continued studies.

All fee-paying students who apply for a Master’s programme that starts at Malmö University in September 2015 are eligible for this scholarship. Applicants must be admitted to one of Malmö University’s programmes in order to receive a scholarship offer.

The selection of talented students will be based on previous academic results during their Bachelor’s studies, the motivation of the applicant as portrayed in the completed application form, and the applicant’s CV. Academic results will count for 40 percent of the assessment, while the motivation counts for 40 percent, and the CV for 20 percent.


The Malmö University Master’s Scholarship (MUMS) is for students who

  • are citizens of a country outside the European Economic Area/Switzerland,
  • have applied for an English-taught Master’s programme at Malmö University through, and,
  • have ranked a programme at Malmö University as first priority in their application for studies.

There are up to 30 scholarships available, each providing a 75 to 100 percent reduction of the programme’s tuition fee. Scholarships will be distributed on a yearly basis and are awarded on academic merit and motivation. Students studying two-year programmes will retain the scholarship if they successfully complete the first year of study and continue to meet the progression criteria.


How are the scholarships funded?

The scholarships are funded by the Swedish Government and are administered locally by Malmö University. All Swedish universities receive scholarship funds from the Government.
