Our societal impact has been ranked third in the world by Times Higher Education, using the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as a framework. The SDGs are our world’s call to action and our Equity and Merit Scholarships aim to empower young professionals in the Global South to address these global goals.

Equity and Merit Scholarships are for academically excellent students who have the potential to make a significant contribution to sustainable development in their home countries. The awards are intended for those who couldn't afford to study in Manchester without a scholarship. We are committed to a policy of equal opportunity and all applications are considered on their merit. We particularly encourage women to apply.

We offer two types of scholarship:

  • Full-time, on-campus master’s (one year duration)
  • Part-time distance learning master’s (three to five years' duration)

There are 29 scholarships (19 for full-time study and 10 for online study) for selected courses available to students from Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Tanzania. The scholarships cover full tuition fees, and for students who will be studying in Manchester, the award includes return international air fares, living expenses and visas.
