Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarships (QECS) will welcome applications shortly for the 2021/2022 offer. This is a special opportunity targeted at the low and middle-income countries of the commonwealth to study a two-year Master’s degree.

However, this life-changing opportunity will be enjoyed by students who are committed to creating change in their communities. It will enable them to experience a new country and culture, to build a global network that will last a lifetime and to broaden horizons of the beneficiaries.

The scholars in turn will help bring about positive change and find solutions to the shared challenges we face – both in their home countries and those that host them. This will be through exposure to cultural exchange and academic collaboration. Equally, as an active part of the Commonwealth network, scholars’ future will become well shaped.
