3 Apply for a scholarship

If you’re interested in applying for a scholarship, you’ll need to write a separate essay (up to 500 words) with your application, outlining which scholarship you are applying for, and why you believe you should be awarded a scholarship.

4 References

You can choose to submit a professional reference to support your application, particularly if you wish to be considered for a WBS scholarship, but this is not a requirement. Referees should be able to comment on your academic or business acumen.

5 Interviews

Your application will be reviewed by the selection committee, at which point you may be invited to complete a pre-recorded video interview. The interview is used to inform the selection Committee but it also enables us to understand what you want to achieve and to make sure we can offer what you are looking for.

6 Receive your offer letter

If you are made an offer, you will receive a formal letter with the full details of your programme, plus any relevant scholarship award confirmation if your application for funding has been successful. 

You'll also be invited to join our app-based MBA community platform, where you'll meet and network with fellow offer holders.
