University of Kent DICE Msc Burnett Scholarships for Africans – Fully Funded

The University of Kent in partnership with the Durrell Institute of Conservation & Ecology (DICE) has announced applications are now being accepted for the inaugural 2024/25 Burnett Scholarship program for Africans in the KASA region aiming to pursue an Msc. Through the generosity of the NotsewOrm Sands Foundation, we are offering up to six scholarships in 2024, and for the next two years. The successful applicant will receive a fully funded studentship on our taught Masters’ course in Conservation Science.

The University of Kent has campuses at Canterbury and Medway, as well as centres in Brussels and Paris. Established in 1960, the university started out in Canterbury and accepted its first students in 1965.

Undergraduate, postgraduate, and international courses are offered on a part-time and full-time basis. There’s a broad range of courses from anthropology to economics, film to pharmacy, journalism to art. Students can choose to customise their degree with elective modules, a year abroad, a year in industry and a whole range of extracurricular courses.

There’s lots of ways students can get involved with campus life at the University of Kent with everything from sports clubs to music events, societies and seasonal events. The main Canterbury campus is home to six colleges, the library, arts centre and students union.

At Kent we believe that everyone at Kent can be #AllInternational and there is opportunity for everyone who would like to get involved with our range of internationally-focused academic, student experience, and engagement activity.
