IMarEST is delighted to announce the launch of a bursary scheme for students enrolling on the Sustainable Maritime Operations degree courses provided by its subsidiary, Marine Learning Alliance (MLA).
The bursaries are designed to help students from any country who want to further their career by achieving a Plymouth University qualification through the MLA but need assistance with the financial costs involved. As a maritime professional body and learned society, the IMarEST aims to help all of those who wish to develop their professional career with a recognised qualification. However, it has been acknowledged that high quality education is often not affordable for all and so this bursary scheme aims to begin to address these inequalities.
Applications for a reduction on course fees are welcomed with immediate effect. These apply to either the post-graduate MSc course or the undergraduate BSc (Hons) degree. Each application will be assessed individually on its merits and an award made for a reduction in the overall course fees. Bursaries will be available for up to 75% of costs at the discretion of the decision committee. There is a limited pot available for bursaries for the next academic year (Sept 2016 to August 2017), and they will be awarded on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
