Get Your Online Degree Fully Funded at the University of Edinburgh

If your lifelong dream has been to go to university, but for one reason or another you were prevented from fulfilling it, you should consider enrolling with an online degree. Online universities today are bringing educational programs to your home via the computer screen, something which was deemed unimaginable ten or twenty years ago.

Online degree programs represent the safe choice for whoever wishes to continue his/her education, but has been forestalled by other responsibilities. Lack of necessary finances is also an important reason why a lot of people fail to check the “attended a university” box off their bucket list. Luckily most online universities out there offer generous student scholarship that can cover tuition fees, study materials and more.

Keep in mind that not only online colleges are open to the idea of student scholarships. There are plenty of third party institutions which make it their goal to support students in need.

For example, the Charles University in Czech Republic is looking to award a set of student scholarships to students interested in pursuing one of the many offline or online degrees with the university.


The grant awards students a waiver of school fees for their first semester of study, plus a one-off payment of around €2.050 to be spent in order to cover living costs. Students located in developing countries or territories going through political and economic turmoil are invited to apply.

For students who want to continue their higher-education, L’Oreal – an iconic beauty product company hailing from France – is offering a fellowship for women scientist in the field of Life Sciences (like biology, biochemistry, neurosciences) as well as Physical Sciences (physics, mathematics and so on) who are residents of a Sub-Saharan country including Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso and more.

Applicants need to be pursuing studies leading to a PhD degree and be able to demonstrate they have worked in a Research Laboratory or Institution in their country or being enrolled in a doctoral program at a University in Sub-Saharan Africa. €5,000 will be awarded to 12 PhD student who can impress the board committee with their application.

Students of online universities rejoice; the University of Edinburgh is also offering 4 scholarships for people willing to enroll in one of the school’s distance learning Master’s programs. Each grant covers full tuition fees and will be awarded for a maximum of 3 years.


Applicants needs to be nationals of a developing country in Africa or Asia including Cambodia, Burundi, Haiti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria or Rwanda. The scholarship is awarded mostly based on academic merit. Candidates must demonstrate (or hope to obtain) a UK first class of 2 or 2:1 Honors degree at undergraduate lever or the international equivalent.


This bursary is the perfect solution for those of you who prefer the environment offered by online universities and are looking to get their online degrees fully funded. This is a great chance. But note that you won’t be able to access the online application form unless you have already applied for admission for an online Master program with the University of Edinburgh.

  64. Thanks. it is a grand opportunity.am collins from uganda currently persuing my bachelors degree in ethics and human rights second year. would be humbled if assisted to enhance my studies

  65. I have already posted a number of comments on this site!
    Presently, I have been awarded an Online MBA Scholarship, at the University of UNICAF, a 20 months program! However, so far the registration for the First Module has already kicked off! Yet, up to this point, I have not yet got required amount of money, which I am supposed to pay to the University, to ensure that I will be able to follow the program to end!

    As a whole, I am supposed to pay up to US$. 2,820, being part of the 20% of the Scholarship that I am expected to contribute.

    With the above in mind, I would like to request the University of Edinburgh, to offer me the above mentioned Bursary, for me to be able to pursue this Online MBA program, with view of pursuing a Doctoral Studies at the University of Edinburgh, in Public Administration and Management!

    Please, if you could offer me this opportunity, I will really be grateful! My goal in this endeavor, is simply, to acquire enough knowledge in Business Administration and Management, for me to be able, to go back to my country and contribute positively to the war ravaged-Young Nation, South Sudan! Many young South Sudanese are desperate for education, but they have no means and opportunities available to them, like other young people around the globe!

    We now have a generation in South Sudan, which will remained illiterate and uneducated! While the perpetrators of war and violence in the country are sending their own children to Australia, USA, Canada, Kenya, Uganda, and so on! Thus, they do so, so that when their children come back to the country, they will carry on the instituted program of their parents, i.e, corruption, abuses against fundamental human rights, crimes against humanity, tribalistic dictatorship and all kinds of evils, taking place in the country now!

    Therefore, if I could be offered this opportunity, to pursue, first my Online MBA Scholarship with the University of UNICAF, and then after completing that in 20 months time, I will the apply for a fully funded Doctoral program with the University of Edinburgh, for me to get enough knowledge and skills and take them back to South Sudan! After all, I already have other Degrees, but mainly in Philosophy and Theology, but which do not carry any impact and weight on our current and global society today!
    I am so hopeful that, the University of Edinburgh will consider my request more positively!
    I wish you all the best!
