New part-scholarships for Nigeria and Kenya

Nairobi, Kenya

We are pleased to announce that five scholarships worth 40% of the course fee are available for the July 2018 intake of the Global MBA.

Three are available for permanent residents in Nigeria, while two are available for permanent residents in Kenya.


As well as being a permanent resident in either Nigeria or Kenya, you must also meet the entry requirements for the MBA (either entry route is fine).

You also cannot already hold a postgraduate qualification that is equivalent to a UK Level 7 award.

To apply

If you are interested, you will need to apply for this award – you are not entered automatically because of where you live.

You can apply by completing a scholarship form and uploading this when you apply online for the Global MBA.

It’s important to note the earlier deadline for scholarship applicants (Friday 18 May) compared to the standard MBA deadline.

Full instructions can be found on the University of London website.

The University of London Global MBA Scholarship was first launched in 2017 for candidates with permanent residency in India. The country of permanent residence for these awards changes annually.
