Queen Elizabeth II Commonwealth Scholarship For International Students 2019/2020
The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK (CSC) is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for International Development (DFID) which provides UK Government Scholarship Scheme led by international development objectives.
Commonwealth Scholarship believed that international collaboration is central to this ambition. By bringing universities together from around the world – and crucially the people who study and work within them ‒ we help to advance knowledge, promote understanding, broaden minds, and improve lives.
Commonwealth Scholarship champion higher education as a cornerstone of stronger societies, supporting our members, partners, and stakeholders as they adapt to a changing world.
International mobility is at the heart of ACU activity. For over a hundred years, the ACU has found new and innovative ways to help staff and students at universities across the world increase their international exposure.
International academic mobility is now more important than ever. There are more opportunities, and more staff and students creating more demand. Yet gaps still remain; options for collaboration in the Commonwealth are limited compared with other regions, and many groups are excluded. At the ACU, we identify these gaps and find new ways to address issues of mobility.
