Commonwealth Shared Scholarships

Commonwealth Shared Scholarships are a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission and the University of Bath, to provide scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the UK.

We are offering three scholarships for the 2017/18 academic year.


You will need:

  • to be of excellent academic calibre (hold a first degree, in most cases at first class level)
  • to demonstrate a strong motivation for choosing a particular course (by means of a personal statement submitted with your course application)
  • to have an idea of how your studies at Bath will help you contribute toward the development of your home country

We expect to receive a large number of applications for these awards.

You must have secured an offer of a place at the University of Bath by 28 March 2017. Please take into account that it may take up to four weeks to process your application.

How to apply

To be considered for the scholarship, you must hold an offer from us for one of the following courses:

Department of Biology & Biochemistry

Department of Computer Science

In addition, you must apply to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission using their Electronic Application System (EAS) which should open in mid-November.

Please read the guidance provided by the Commonwealth Commission:
