The university is strengthening its ties with Thailand, offering seven scholarships through its partnership with the country’s biggest travel retail group, King Power.

The offer will give exceptional Thai students the opportunity to study with the official higher education partner of Premier League champions Leicester City, which has a huge Thai following through with the club’s owners King Power.

The scholarships, which cover full tuition fees for a one-year Master’s programme at DMU, were launched this week in Bangkok at the King Power headquarters.

The university welcomes students from more than 130 countries and places internationalisation at the heart of the student experience. It was recently named as one of the 150 best young universities in the world by the influential Times Higher Education.

James Gardner, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Strategic and International Partnerships at DMU, said: “These scholarships will be awarded to exceptional candidates residing in Thailand who have applied to study a master’s degree at DMU.

“International students make a very significant contribution to DMU in almost every way and diversity on campus is what makes DMU such a rich and unique place to study. DMU enjoys particularly strong links with Thailand, with around 50 Thai students having studied at DMU in the past five years. We’re very proud of all of them and look forward to welcoming more in the months and years to come.”

Scholarship applicants must hold an offer of study at DMU for September 2017 or January 2018, and will need to complete a 500 word statement in order to apply. Click here to find out more.
