Commonwealth Masters Scholarships-Fully Funded

Overview

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

Application deadline: 1st November, 2021

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 upper 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.

Scholar eligibility
