    I want to know what is wrong with Brunei Darrusalam Scholarships? Why is it different from other scholarships?

    The only way to apply your scholarships is through a post; common Brunei, don’t you have any internet connection? Why would you cost people?

    In any university in this world, including HAVARD, OXFORD and CAMBRIDGE; you don’t need to send your docs through post to apply; but all you need is to send through Email…

    Please you should look at easy ways instead of making it complicated!!

    Hello, there is a number of reasons why most applications are made to be by post;
    For authencity of the documents and evaluate the level of seriousness of the applicant.You have invest in education my dear.Me personally I paid $20 for posting because I need the MSc. Petroleum Geosciences.

    But one issue that really makes uncomfortable,is upon now I have received any kind of acknowledgement of receipt of my application package and the date when we expect list of successful applicants to published,I have any idea about it.

    Please a request to Technical Assistance Division at least notify us that our applications are recieved.

    Many thanks to Brunei Darussalaam for this valuable opportunity because education is a key.

    I want to apply for the scholarship, but I dont how can I apply. When u say scholarship is fully scholarship or just the student will pay the ticket of the air way. if it is that, I my self I want to study but I dont have money for the ticket (go and return). Now I’m completing my degree at Muslim University of Morogoro in Tanzania. But I my self I’m Zanzibarian (island).
    So, I need this ship for the coming year.

    Abdullah, am afraid you’d have to wait till it’s open again at the end of this year. The deadline for this one is long gone.
