Benefits

A Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarship covers tuition fees and study grants where required. Other scholarships, awards, or bursaries that cover the same costs may not be held concurrently.

Application

You must apply to study an eligible master’s course at a UK university that is participating in the Distance Learning scheme. You must also apply and secure admission to your university course in addition to applying for a Distance Learning Scholarship. You must check with your chosen university for their specific advice on when to apply, admission requirements, and rules for applying. 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 chosen university. The CSC will not accept any applications that are not submitted via the online application system. You can apply for more than one course and/or to more than one university, but you may only accept one offer of a Distance Learning Scholarship.
