					    Loughborough University Development Trust Postgraduate Certificate
                              scholarships


For entry in January 2011 there are fifteen scholarships available for new self-financing students resident
in certain countries to undertake a distance learning Postgraduate Certificate. There are three Certificate
programmes for which the scholarship can be awarded: Water and Waste Engineering (WWE), Water
and Environmental Management (WEM) and Infrastructure in Emergencies (IIE).

Certificate programmes consist of four modules. The current module fee is £1025 and the scholarship
will be to the value of £725 per module, £2900 in total. Students will need to fund the balance of £300
per module, £1200 in total. This will be paid in instalments of £300, each payment being made before the
relevant module starts.

An Applicant should:

      Be a national of a country listed in Table 1;
      Be resident in a country listed in Table 1 during the whole of the study period, although this does
       not have to be his/her home country;
      Be In receipt of, and have accepted, an ‘unconditional offer’ of a place to study on the relevant
       programme before his/her application for sponsorship will be considered;
      Be able to pay the balance of fees of £1200 for the Certificate themselves or with family
       assistance (self-financing). Where the balance of fees is to be paid by a charitable organisation,
       applications will be given a lower weighting than those from candidates who are self-financing;
       and
      Be able to pay the balance (£300) of the first module fee by 1st December, 2010.
