Shared Scholarships are offered on an annual basis for Master’s study only.

To apply for a Commonwealth Shared Scholarship, candidates must:

  • Be a Commonwealth citizen, refugee, or British protected person
  • Be permanently resident in a developing Commonwealth country
  • Be available to start your academic studies in the UK by the start of the UK academic year in September/October 2017
  • By August 2017, hold a first degree of either first or upper second class (2:1) classification, or lower second class (2:2) classification plus a relevant postgraduate qualification (usually a Master’s degree)
  • Not have studied or worked for one (academic) year or more in a developed country
  • Be unable, either yourself or through your family, to pay to study in the UK

Sponsoring institutions must confirm that candidates are sufficiently fluent in written and oral English to pursue their proposed studies immediately, as no pre-course English Language Teaching is available under these awards.

Eligible groups
Citizens of Developing Commonwealth Countries – see Terms and Conditions for complete list of eligible countries

Participating Institution(s)

Number of Awards
Up to 230 scholarship positions

Sponsorship duration

Scholarship benefits

And you must make your scholarship application using the CSC’s Electronic Application System (EAS). Before applying, you must check with your UK university for their specific advice and rules for applying, and for their own closing date for applications.
