COMMONWEALTH MASTER’S SCHOLARSHIPS

0 7

Overview

The agency-nominated Master programme is one of three Master’s programmes offered by the Commission.

Purpose: 

Funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), Commonwealth Master’s Scholarships enable talented and motivated individuals to gain the knowledge and skills required for sustainable development, and are aimed at those who could not otherwise afford to study in the UK.

Intended Beneficiaries: 

Commonwealth Master’s Scholarships are for candidates from eligible lower and middle income Commonwealth countries, to undertake full-time taught Master’s study at a UK university.

These scholarships are offered under six CSC Development themes.

How to apply

You must apply to one of the following nominating bodies in the first instance – the CSC does not accept direct applications for these scholarships.

Each nominating body is responsible for its own selection process and may have additional eligibility criteria. 

You must check with your nominating body for their specific advice and rules for applying, their own eligibility criteria, and their own closing date for applications.

You must make your application using the CSC’s online application system, in addition to any other application that you are required to complete by your nominating body. 

The CSC will not accept any applications that are not submitted via the online application system.
