  • 1. 1 COMMONWEALTH SHARED SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME 2014
  • 2. 2 The Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan is one of the largest and most prestigious scholarships schemes for international study in the world. Since it was established in 1959, almost 30,000 individuals have benefited – nearly 24,000 of them have held awards funded by the United Kingdom, managed by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the United Kingdom (CSC), with 3,700 of them being Shared Scholars. This prospectus describes the Commonwealth Shared Scholarships offered by the CSC in 2014-2015. Commonwealth Shared Scholarships, offered in partnership with UK universities, are for developing country students who would not otherwise be able to undertake Master’s level study in the UK. In 2014-2015, 69 UK universities are participating in the scheme by jointly funding the scholarships. The CSC extends its thanks to participating universities; while the scheme is managed by the CSC, its success depends critically on their support. Separate programmes and prospectuses exist for the other scholarships and fellowships offered by the CSC, including Commonwealth Scholarships for Master’s and PhD study, Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships, Commonwealth Academic Fellowships, and Commonwealth Professional Fellowships. For more information, visit the CSC website at www.dfid.gov.uk/cscuk
  • 3. 3 COMMONWEALTH SHARED SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME 1. General Awards made under this scheme are jointly funded by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) and participating institutions in the UK. The scheme is administered by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC), whose Secretariat is provided by The Association of Commonwealth Universities, Woburn House, 20-24 Tavistock Square, London, WC1H 9HF, UK. 2. Aims The aim of the scheme is to assist students from developing Commonwealth countries who are of excellent academic calibre but for financial reasons would not otherwise be able to afford to study in the UK. The scheme allows them to benefit from postgraduate study at a university in the UK which will help them to contribute toward the development of their home countries. 3. Level of study Awards are for taught Masters’ courses only. No awards will be made for undergraduate or doctoral study. 4. Subjects Subjects must be related to the economic, social and technological development of the student’s home country; see page 8 for a full list of eligible courses. 5. Duration of awards Awards are normally tenable for one-year taught postgraduate courses only. 6. Eligibility 6.1 Candidates are normally expected to hold a first degree at either first class or upper second-class level. Sponsoring institutions must confirm that candidates are sufficiently fluent in written and oral English to pursue their proposed studies immediately, as no pre-course English Language Teaching is available under these awards. Candidates who have already studied for one year or more in a developed country or who possess sufficient resources to self-fund are not eligible for an award. 6.2 Candidates must certify in writing that they: i) are nationals of a Commonwealth developing country, and not at present living or studying in a developed country; ii) have not undertaken studies lasting one year or more in a developed country;
  • 4. 4 iii) are themselves, or through their families, unable to pay to study in the United Kingdom; iv) will return to their home country as soon as their award comes to an end. The commission will only consider requests to extend leave to remain in the UK post-award for those wishing to move from masters to PhD study. Strict conditions will apply. 6.3 Candidates are advised that false declarations will cause at least CSC’s share of the award to be terminated, even if the course of study has started. In such circumstances, the candidate will be required to refund any payments made by the CSC in connection with the award. 6.4 All candidates must submit their application using the Commission’s Electronic Application System (EAS). This must be done no later than 16 April 2014 or in line with the preferred institutions closing date (this will be on or before 16 April). Any candidate failing to do this will be deemed ineligible. Please note that some institutions may also require candidates to apply through their application system in addition to the EAS application. 7. Costs 7.1 CSC and participating UK institutions will jointly meet the full costs of an award holder’s study in the UK. Tuition fees and air fares to and from the UK are paid by the CSC and the maintenance allowance is paid by the scholar’s host institution, at the level set by the UK Government: £1,173 per month for scholars based in London and £948 per month for the rest of the UK. (October 2013 figures with an inflationary increase for 2014/15 academic year). 7.2 A grant of up to £225 to cover thesis (Master’s) costs is available; also available is £200 for study travel. The cost of up to 10 Kilograms of excess baggage (books only) is available for scholars returning home at the end of their awards. 7.3 No additional allowances are paid for spouses or other dependants. 8. Application and selection 8.1 Recruitment and selection is undertaken by the Host institutions in the UK. 8.2 Applications should be made directly to the institutions at which candidates wish to study. The host institutions will be the judges of academic calibre and will forward their nominations to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission for its agreement. Institutions will normally advise candidates of the result not later than July. 8.3 Candidates should note that although they may apply to more than one institution, only one offer of award may be accepted.

  • 27. 27 Additional notes Academic Technology Approval Scheme for International Students (ATAS) In common with other governments around the world, the UK Government is working hard to stop the spread of knowledge and skills that could be used in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery. The ATAS is designed to ensure that people who are applying to study certain sensitive subjects in the UK do not have links to WMD programmes. Since 1 November 2007 non-EU/EEA (including Switzerland) nationals planning to undertake postgraduate study in the UK in certain science, engineering or technology disciplines are required to have an ATAS certificate before they can apply for a Visa or Entry Clearance (EC). Application is free and can be made online. Applicants should hear about the result of their application within 20 working days from the date the application is received by the issuing department. For further information on the ATAS, visit www.fco.gov.uk/atas Visas There has recently been a change to UK immigration rules and Commonwealth Scholars are now required to apply for a visa to come to the UK under Tier 4 of the new Immigration System. The UK host university will be the sponsor for your visa.
