About Commonwealth Postgraduate Scholarship

The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK (CSC) awards over 900 scholarships and fellowships for postgraduate study and professional development of Commonwealth citizens each year.

The CSC aims to contribute to the UK’s international development aims and wider overseas interests, support excellence in UK higher education, and sustain the principles of the Commonwealth.

Candidates are selected based on merit and their potential to contribute to the needs of their home countries.

Commonwealth Scholarship Candidate Eligibility/Requirements

Candidates are expected to hold a first degree at either first-class or upper second class level, or at lower second class level plus a Master’s degree. The CSC cannot assess work experience in lieu of this minimum academic qualification.

This programme does not support pre-sessional English courses. Universities must therefore confirm that candidates are sufficiently fluent in written and oral English to pursue their studies immediately and ensure that they meet the English language requirement set by UK Visas and Immigration.

Candidates are required to sign an undertaking that they:

1. Are nationals of a least developed or lower-middle-income Commonwealth country

2. Are permanently domiciled in the least developed and lower-middle-income Commonwealth country, and are not at present living or studying in a high-income country

3. Have not undertaken studies for one (academic) year or more in a high-income country

4. Have not worked for one year or more in a high-income country

5. Are they, or through their families, unable to pay to study in the UK (the university may be asked to state its procedures for verifying applicants’ financial status)

6. Will return to their home country within one month of the end date of their scholarship

7. These eligibility criteria are subject to minor changes.
