Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships cover overseas tuition fees at Master’s degree-level.
Expressions of Interest in receiving 2013 Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships for any distance learning courses offered either directly or in partnership with an overseas institution are now closed.
The CSC expects to invite UK universities to submit Expressions of Interest for 2014 Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships in July 2013 – updated information will be available on this page.
Terms and conditions
Commonwealth Distance Learning 2013 prospectus – this is provided for information purposes only and details are subject to change for 2014
All Expressions of Interest should be completed with reference to the prospectus.
How to apply
Expressions of Interest may be submitted by UK universities only. The CSC expects all Expressions of Interest to be submitted with the approval of the university and they should therefore be submitted by an appointed member of staff.
Expressions of Interest must be submitted via our Electronic Application System (EAS).
The selection committee considers all eligible Expressions of Interest at a meeting in November. Successful course providers are then invited to submit a formal proposal for support for a specified number of Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships, which will be considered by the selection committee in February. The committee will also then decide on the number of scholarships to be allocated to each course. After this, course providers will recruit candidates for selection in July, to start their courses in September/October.
