In addition, shared awards for a taught Masters Degree are offered at the University of Cambridge (BC); University of Cape Town (BCT); University of Edinburgh (BE)University of Glasgow (BG); Imperial College London (BI); University of Leeds (BL); University of Oxford -Wadham College (BOW); Rhodes University (BRU); Stellenbosch University (BS); University of Strathclyde (BSC); and the University of Witwatersrand (BW).
There is no academic difference between shared Postgraduate Scholarships and solely Beit-funded Postgraduate Scholarships, but, for economic and pastoral reasons, selection boards generally favour partner-universities. Many Beit Scholars choose the Africa-friendly partner- universities listed above where shared costs permit a larger number of scholarships to be offered to the beneficial area.
