Fully Funded Commonwealth Shared Scholarship 2024/2025 - University of Edinburgh UK

The University of Edinburgh has opened its doors to students from developing Commonwealth countries who wish to apply for the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme for the 2024/2025 academic session. This fully-funded opportunity is aimed at students who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom. The scholarship is a joint initiative between the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and UK universities, including the University of Edinburgh.

The scholarship is open to students who are citizens of or have been granted refugee status by an eligible Commonwealth country, and who are permanently resident in an eligible Commonwealth country. Applicants must hold a first degree of at least upper-second-class (2:1) honours standard, or a lower second-class degree (2:2) and a relevant postgraduate qualification (usually a Master’s degree) by September 2024. Additionally, they must not have studied or worked for more than one (academic) year or more in a high-income country and must be unable to afford to study in the UK university without this Scholarship.


The scholarship covers all tuition fees, airfare to and from the United Kingdom, and expenses for accommodation and maintenance. Payments for the academic year 2023-2024 are set at £1,347 per month for the programme of study. Eligible courses for the scholarship include MSc Africa and International Development, MSc Global Crime, Justice and Security, MSc Future Governance, MSc Global Health Policy, MSc Planetary Health, and MSc International Development.

To apply for the scholarship, applicants must make their application through the Commonwealth Scholarships Commission’s Electronic Application System (EAS). The application deadline is December 14, 2023. For more eligibility information and how to apply, visit the Commonwealth Scholarships Commission’s website. This is a great opportunity for students looking to pursue their Masters degree in the UK, so don’t miss out!
