The competition for scholarships is very high and the chance of getting one is low. Only excellent students, who can prove that they are among the best 5% of their study cohort, will be eligible for the Africa Scholarship Programme. Considering the number of candidates, only a part of these excellent students will be invited to take part in the scholarship selection procedure(s).
The 80 percent GPA or higher is a standard we uphold. Furthermore, we require, if applicable, a First Class honours BSc graduation or equivalent. Also reference letters and achievement awards can be uploaded during the MSc admission process which may help to prove that you belong to the top 5% of your year. Also, your c.v. and statement of purpose will be assessed/evaluated.
If you do not meet our requirements of an excellent, top 5%, student you will not be eligible for the Africa Scholarship Programme.
