The University offers a total of six scholarships for a number of specific online, distance learning Masters, including the MSc in Global Challenges (not the PG Certificates). This is open to students from selected countries and is based on academic merit.
The closing date is several months before the start of the programme, and you must have received an unconditional offer of a place on the MSc before you apply for the scholarship.

Some students are supported in their studies by their employers with study time and/or contribution towards fees.
If you are seeking support from your employer you will probably need to demonstrate how the programme will contribute to your professional development in your current role. You will find the following pages for each programme useful to build a 'business case' for support from your employer:
- The 'Approach' pages set the understanding, knowledge and skills each programme aims to develop.
- The 'Course description' pages set out the capacities each individual course aims to develop.
If your employer has a policy of supporting continuing professional development, and may be willing to add these programmes to their approved list, they should contact the programme director for further information.
