Applications are now open for candidates from low and middle-income Commonwealth countries to apply for the Commonwealth Master’s Scholarship. This programme is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
This bursary is designed for those eligible aspirants who want to undertake full-time taught master’s study at a UK university. The primary goal of CSC is to identify talented individuals who have the potential to make a change.
The funding will provide tuition fees, homeward, inward airfares, and many more each year to the international candidates. So take a glance and get more information about this scholarship.
