[England] MSc Scholarships in Management and Information Systems, University of Manchester

The School of Environment and Development invites applications for a fully-funded scholarship for candidates from developing countries for Master's study by distance learning on the MSc Management and Information Systems. The scholarship will cover all study costs including tuition and examining fees and course material costs.
The programme is offered by IDPM's Development Informatics Group, with staff members contributing to the University's Centre for Development Informatics.
Who studies on this Programme?
The MSc M&IS programme is available through distance learning so that practitioners can study while continuing to work in their ongoing professional roles, in the public, private and civil society sectors, or in roles in international organizations, agencies or NGOs. Students work alongside their MSc study, and complete the programme part-time, typically in about two-and-a-half years.
The scholarships are intended to support students from developing countries who would not otherwise be able to study for a UK qualification. Applicants should:
Be a national of and resident in a developing country of Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America or Oceania.
Have at least two years' work experience in a post relevant to their MSc M&IS studies.
Hold a UK second class honours, upper division, or above, or its international equivalent, in their Bachelor's degree.
Applicants must not have previously studied in a developed country (short/language courses excluded).
