    DFID Shared Scholarship Scheme
    (Overseas Applicants)

    The Shared Scholarship Scheme is a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (with funding from DFID), and UK universities, to support scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom. The scheme is administered by the Association of Commonwealth Universities. Funding covers full costs of an award holder's study in the UK (fees) including airfares. No additional allowances are paid for spouses or other dependants.

    Courses eligible for the award: In 2011/12, the award is only offered to applicants for the MSc Public Health for Eye Care (formerly known as Community Eye Health) and the MSc Molecular Biology of Infectious Diseases.

    Please note that to be eligible, applicants must hold an offer of admission by 10 May 2011.

    Applicants eligibility:Applicants should:
    be nationals of (or permanently domiciled in) a Commonwealth developing country, and not currently be living or studying in a developed country
    hold a first degree at either first or upper second class level
    be sufficiently fluent in English to pursue the course
    have not previously studied for one year or more in a developed country
    not be employed by a government department (at national level) or a parastatal organisation (employees of universities are normally acceptable, however)
    be willing to confirm that they will return to their home country as soon as their period of study is complete
