About Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme


The Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme (CSSS) is a joint initiative between the UK Department for International Development (DfID) and the University of Bristol to support students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom.


There are 9 awards in 2019 for students studying an eligible one-year taught postgraduate programme. The Shared Scholarship covers:


* Tuition fees

* Maintenance/ Living cost stipend (Pound 1,065 pcm, 2017/18 figures)

* Return flights

* Thesis grant

* Study travel grant (if applicable)

* A one-off arrival allowance (Pound 410, 2017/18 figures)


Tuition fees are paid by the DfID / Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, and the University of Bristol pays the maintenance allowance.


Please note: CSSS award holders must return home within four weeks at the end of their programme upon submitting their dissertation. Attending the graduation ceremony is not part of the award.




* Applicants must be from the list of countries included in the scheme. For a full list of eligible countries, please see the information provided on the Commonwealth Shared Scholarships website.


* Candidates are expected to hold a first degree at either first class or upper second class level.


* English language requirements, as a minimum to meet UKBA tier 4 visa regulations, must be met and must be in place before the application deadline.


* Applicants must not presently be living or studying in a developed country, or must not have previously studied in a developed country.


* Candidates will be required to sign an undertaking that they:


1. are nationals of (or permanently domiciled in) a Commonwealth developing country, and not at present, living or studying in a developed country;


2. have not undertaken studies lasting one year or more in a developed country;


3. are themselves (or their family), unable to pay to study in the UK;


4. will return to their home country as soon as the award ends.


Please note, as part of the application, you will be asked by the Commission how your inclusion on the programme will benefit your home country.


How to apply


Applications must be made via the Commonwealth Commission’s EAS system. The application system opened for candidates on 21 January and will close at 16:00 on 14 March 2019.


You will also need to apply for a place on an eligible master’s programme at the University by 14 March 2019. You can apply for the programme online. We regret that we can only consider scholarship applications from those who have also applied to study at the University by the deadline.
