Application process

Those interested in the opportunity, and are eligible, must first apply to the University of St Andrews to enroll in the online sustainable aquaculture MSc course. Successful applicants can then apply for CSC scholarship funding.

"In particular applicants should demonstrate how they can promote the development of sustainable aquaculture within their country," says Dr Hazon.

The pre-application window is 15 February – 5 April 2022, to allow time to complete the full application process as you must receive an offer from University of St Andrews before you can apply for CSC scholarship funding.

Those interested need to act quickly and complete the pre-application process here Pre Application.
