The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) have made available 10 (Ten) new scholarships for students to study the Water and Environmental Management MSc starting in January 2016.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS is 15th May 2015 23.59 GMT

To apply you must:

  1. Comply with all CSC requirements. Find out more detail at http://cscuk.dfid.gov.uk/apply/distance-learning/info-candidates/.
  2. Already hold an ‘unconditional offer’ from Loughborough University to study the course. Visit http://wedc.lboro.ac.uk/learn/learn803.html to learn how to apply for the Programme.
  3. Complete the CSC scholarship application form through the Electronic Application System (EAS) website that is accessed via http://cscuk.dfid.gov.uk/apply/eas/applicants/distance-learning/.

IMPORTANT - Please ensure that you have enough time to study.
The CSC will only fund students who complete their study within 4 years of starting. During this time you must complete eight modules of 15 credits and a research dissertation. Each year comprises two study periods of five months. When one 15-credit module is studied in a five-month period, this will require an estimated 150 hours of study. However, to complete all studies in four years, students will need to study two 15-credit modules in two of the periods, requiring an estimated 300 hours of study in each. In the fourth year, students will prepare a dissertation that will require an estimated 600 hours of study. Students who apply should ensure that they are likely to have adequate time to spend on their studies so that they pass all modules at the first attempt. Funding will be discontinued where students do not make acceptable progress.

IMPORTANT - Can you afford your contribution?
Students must contribute £100 each time that they book to study a module. CSC will pay the balance of the fee. So over the four years you will have to pay £900.
