The University of Edinburgh will offer two scholarships for postgraduate study in any subject offered by the University to students from Southern African countries. One of the scholarships will be available for a one year Master’s degree programme and the other scholarship for a three year PhD degree programme.
The scholarship covers the overseas rate of tuition fee and University accommodation for the duration of the postgraduate degree programme.
The scholarship will be awarded to applicants from Southern African countries who are accepted for admission on a full-time basis for a postgraduate Master’s programme of study or PhD degree programme at the University of Edinburgh. Applicants may apply from the following countries:
|The Democratic Republic of Congo
|United Republic of Tanzania
Applicants should already have been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so. Further details on how to make a postgraduate application can be found on the University website at www.ed.ac.uk/studying/postgraduate
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit. Candidates must have, or expect to obtain, the international equivalent of a UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree at undergraduate level.
Eligible applicants for the one-year Master’s Scholarship should complete an online scholarship application. Within the personal statement candidates should outline what they expect to gain from their Master’s programme and how it will enable them to make a future contribution in their home country.
Eligible applicants for the PhD Scholarship should complete an online scholarship application.
Alternatively applicants can request a paper application form from:
The Scholarships and Student Finance Office
The University of Edinburgh
Edinburgh EH8 9YL
Telephone: +44 131 651 4070
Completed application forms must be returned to the Scholarships and Student Finance Office no later than 1 April 2010.
Please note that application for the scholarship is a separate process from applying to a programme of study at the University. The Centre of African Studies can not offer guidance on the latter, but reference should be made to the website of the respective Colleges and academic units.
A Selection Committee will meet in early May 2010 to select the scholarship holders and successful candidates will be notified shortly afterwards.
