The CSSS is a joint initiative between the UK Department for International Development (DfID) and UK Universities, to jointly support scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries, who would not otherwise be able to study in the UK.
Duration of award is one year (At the end of the award, candidates are required to return to their home country within two weeks after their course ends).
The award covers tuition fees, maintenance, return flights, thesis grant, study travel (if required).
Scholarship Application Eligibility Criteria:
If English is not an applicant’s first language, then the University will require a minimum score of IELTS 6.5 for entry on to the course and evidence of this will be required.
Alternatively we will accept a statement from the University that English was the language of tuition for the first degree and that student work was submitted in English.
