Application Deadline: 15 May 2015 23:59 (GMT)

Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships support candidates to study Master’s degree courses that are either offered in partnership with universities in developing countries, or delivered directly by UK institutions.

The scheme was established in 2002, as a direct response to the measures taken by our funder, the UK Department for International Development (DFID), to explore new methods of delivery as part of the drive for poverty reduction.

2015 Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships are being offered for the following Master’s courses at the following Universities:

  • Cardiff University
  • Bangor University
  • Leeds Beckett University (MSc Public Health Promotion)
  • London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
  • Loughborough University (MSc Water and Environmental Management)
  • SOAS, University of London
  • University of Manchester
  • University of Nottingham
  • University of Oxford
  • University of Southampton
  • University of St Andrews
  • University of Stirling
  • University of Strathclyde


To be eligible for a Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarship, you must:

  • be a citizen of a developing Commonwealth country, refugee, or British protected person
  • be permanently resident in a developing Commonwealth country
  • normally hold a first degree of upper second-class standard, or higher qualification. In certain cases, we will consider a lower qualification and sufficient relevant experience
