Study In England (UK)
Deadline: 1st May, 2018
The Department of Economics at the University of Sussex, England is offering an annual Masters scholarship for suitable candidates from selected sub-Saharan African countries on either the Development Economics MSc or Economics MSc.
Our Masters programmes in both economics and development economics also benefit from having students from African backgrounds who bring important personal experiences from developing countries that can be shared with other students from more developed countries.
Part of the Sussex vision is to ensure that the student community remains international, diverse and representative, and therefore the provision of merit scholarships is vital to our work.
The scholarship includes the full payment of the overseas tuition fee and a maintenance grant of £10,000, but does not include travel expenses to and from the United Kingdom.
To be eligible, you must
- have completed your undergraduate degree in Africa
- have been offered admission for either the Development Economics MSc or Economics MSc in university of Sussex to start in September 2018
- hold or expect to achieve the equivalent of a good, upper second class UK degree
