The University of Edinburgh Business School offers the Business School Commonwealth Scholarships to students who are nationals of Commonwealth countries.
Each of these scholarships are available at a value of £10,000 to successful applicants.
The Scholarships are open to applicants who have an excellent academic record, who are applying for admission onto one of the MSc programmes listed below in September 2014.
Applicants should already have been offered a place on one of the programmes, and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so. If they have not yet paid their deposit, they will be required to pay within two weeks of being offered the scholarship. Applicants who hold full sponsorships are not eligible for the scholarship.
If an applicant is successful in being awarded a scholarship, but subsequently declines their offer of admission on the MSc programme, the award of the scholarship will be withdrawn and awarded to another applicant. An award may be withdrawn if a student fails to meet the academic standards set by the University.
