The Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme

This is a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (with funding from the Department for International Development (DFID), and UK universities, to support scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom.

The aim of the scheme is to assist students from developing Commonwealth countries who are of excellent academic calibre but for financial reasons would not otherwise be able to afford to study in the United Kingdom. The scheme allows them to benefit from postgraduate study at a university in the United Kingdom which will help them to contribute toward the development of their home countries.

Awards are for taught Master's programmes and the MSc in Global Health and Development is one of only 10 degrees for which UCL accepts applications for this scheme.

If you are a candidate from a developing country in the Commonwealth we recommend that you apply for entrance in the programme as soon as possible as you will need to apply separately to the scholarhsip. The deadline to apply for the schoalrship is 17th of March 2014. For more information on this scholarship click here
