Distance learning bursaries are available for new self-financing students resident in certain countries including many developing countries and low income group countries, to undertake a Postgraduate Certificate by distance learning.
These distance learning bursaries are available thanks to the Loughborough University Development Trust, which raises funds from former students and other friends of the University, and from generous grants from the Thriplow Trust and the Waterloo Foundation. A LUDT Scholarship subsidises study of up to four distance learning modules (which form a Postgraduate Certificate, but which could later contribute to an MSc if you can find the full fees for five more modules). The subsidy is such that scholars pay only £300 per module for the four subsidised modules.
For entry in January 2011 there are fifteen scholarships available for new self-financing students resident in certain countries to undertake a Postgraduate Certificate by distance learning. There are three Certificate programmes for which the scholarship can be awarded: Water and Waste Engineering (WWE), Water and Environmental Management (WEM) and Infrastructure in Emergencies (IIE) – click the links for more details.
Certificate programmes consist of four modules. The current module fee is £1025 and the scholarship will be to the value of £725 per module, £2900 in total. Students will need to fund the balance of £300 per module, £1200 in total. This will be paid in instalments of £300, each payment being made before the relevant module starts.
Applicants must already have accepted an unconditional offer of a place on one of the three Postgraduate Certificate Programmes. Click here for further details and application form.
The deadline for applications is Friday 29 October 2010.
