We are pleased to be partnering with Commonwealth Scholarships Commission to offer 5 full scholarships for the September 2024 intake to our MA in Human Rights by distance learning.

The MA in Human Rights is a practice-based online Master's that builds the vocational skills students need to succeed as a human rights practitioner. Cutting-edge course content examines human rights issues from a practical perspective as well as theoretical and legal ones, so you’ll learn the essential skills needed to work in the field.


Applicants must already have been offered a place on our MA Programme: www.london.ac.uk/study/courses/postgraduate/ma-human-rights

We recommend that applications for the MA programme reach us no later than 18 March 2023.


In 2024, these scholarships will contribute to the provision of specialist training aimed at applicants from Low and Middle Income Commonwealth States. They are aimed at those unable to study in the UK for financial and other reasons.

Funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships enable talented and motivated individuals to gain the knowledge and skills required for sustainable development.
