We welcome Commonwealth scholars

Posted on 1 November 2017

16 postgraduate students, supported by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, have joined our online programmes.

SPSW's online postgraduate programmes team.

The students are studying on two of our distance learning programmes: the Masters in Public Policy and Management and the Masters of Public Administration (International Development). They work in a wide variety of roles in a range of public and non-profit organisations, and between them span a dozen countries: Botswana, Ghana, Guyana, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Mauritius, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

Commonwealth Scholarships, funded by the Department for International Development, are designed to support promising scholars who work in roles that help take forward the UN Sustainable Development Goals in their countries.

Ellen Roberts, Director of Online Studies, commented: “We are delighted to welcome these talented students to our online learning community, and look forward very much to working with them.”
