The Association of Commonwealth Universities is accepting applications for their master’s scholarships programme.
Commonwealth Master’s Scholarships offer students from Commonwealth countries the opportunity to study for a Master’s degree and the chance to develop new skills.
Successful applicants benefit from the expertise offered within universities in low and middle income Commonwealth countries and get the chance to experience life in another country.
Institutions involved in the programme include the University of Dhaka in Bangladesh, the University of Botswana, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Ghana, the COMSATS Institute of Information Technology in Pakistan, the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, and the University of the West Indies.
Since the programme’s inception in 2011, 81 scholars from across the Commonwealth have undertaken courses and research in subjects ranging from agriculture and African studies to law and life sciences.
Business and Administrative Studies have proved the most popular subjects of study, followed by Physical Sciences and Agriculture related subjects.
The fully-funded scholarships are mostly financed by the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan and cover full tuition fees, a regular living allowance, an arrival allowance and a return economy flight.
Applicants must be Commonwealth citizens of a country other than the host country and must hold a Bachelors degree of upper second level or higher.
The opportunity is currently only available for Master’s courses and is not applicable to distance learning courses.
The deadline for applications to the Association of Commonwealth Universities is March 11, 2018.
