The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is an international organization dedicated to building a better world through higher education and international collaboration. By bringing universities together from around the world – and crucially the people who study and work within them ‒ the ACU helps to advance knowledge, promote understanding, broaden minds, and improve lives.
A Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarship is a unique opportunity to study for a two-years Master’s degree in low or middle-income country of the Commonwealth. The following countries will be hosting a QECS award:
