Online MSc Sustainable Mountain Development: Scholarship available

© UHI - MSc Sustainable Mountain Development

A scholarship towards the costs of participating in the part-time online MSc Sustainable Mountain Development offered by the University of the Highlands and Islands, Scotland, is available for one student starting in September 2013. The course is an activity of the UNESCO Chair in Sustainable Mountain Development established in 2009 at the University of the Highlands and Islands. The scholarship will pay all fees for a student to complete the MSc. It is available to candidates who have been resident for at least 3 years in any European country (EU/EEA). The successful candidate will be responsible for paying all other costs (books, travel to induction and field course if attended, etc.). The scholarship has been made possible by the generosity of Lt. Col. John Moncrieff, a keen mountaineer who passed away recently.

Candidates for the scholarship should apply for the course, using the form at http://www.perth.uhi.ac.uk/apply/Pages/default.aspx. They should send this not only to pc.admissions(at)perth.uhi.ac.uk but also to info.cms(at)perth.uhi.ac.uk together with a letter describing the benefits they would derive from the scholarship.   

The deadline for applications for the scholarship is 27 May 2013

Short-listed applicants will be interviewed by phone in early June 2013.

The successful candidate will have to commit to take at least two modules a year (September to December and late January to May) for three years and to undertake a dissertation in the fourth year.  If the successful candidate does not have a previous degree from an English-speaking university, they will have to prove competence in English.
