Loughborough University Scholarships For African Students To Study In UK, 2016

Loughborough University invites applications for full-fee scholarships for full-time taught postgraduate students who are currently domiciled (permanently living) in Africa.

  • Commitment to return to their home country on completion of postgraduate programme
