The following tests are accepted for entry into degree-level courses: International English Language Testing System (IELTS) (Academic); Pearson Test of English (PTE) (Academic); Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE); Cambridge Proficiency (CPE); TOEFL iBT (internet based) and Trinity ISE.

Course Level: Scholarships are available for pursuing postgraduate programme.

Study Subject: In 2017 the trust will be making awards only to those studying in three areas:

  • Justice, which includes Law, Economics, Politics and the Environment
  • Education policy and practice
  • Humanities, which includes Literature, History, Anthropology and the Arts
  • Please only apply if your program of study falls into one of these disciplines. Interdisciplinary courses and doctoral studies may sometimes defy easy categorization. Applicants are urged to use their judgement in assessing whether to apply. But applications that clearly do not fall within these areas (for example MBAs, medical sciences, sports sciences, applied sciences) will not be considered for an award.

Scholarship Award: In 2017 most awards will be valued at R65, 000 for each year of study at Masters and Ph.D. level. In exceptional cases, we may offer up to R100, 000 per year. The trust supports both full and part-time study and will consider applications from those who wish to study by distance learning.
