Please be aware that if you don’t have a maths degree you may need to provide degree transcripts.  Equally, if you have completed your degree outside the UK you will need a NARIC equivalency statement to assist your application.

Furthermore, if you are on an SKE course we recommend that you complete this if possible before you come to an assessment centre.  This is to assist you with regards to the mathematical knowledge you will need to show as part of the overall assessment process.

If you have any questions about any aspect of your eligibility to apply, or the scheme in general, please contact the Scholarship Scheme here at the IMA where the team will be happy to help.
