British Council Commonwealth Scholarships for Summer School in Edinburgh

Deadline: March 21, 2014

The British Council in Scotland is providing three scholarships to enable gifted literature and creative writing students from Commonwealth countries to attend the Scottish Universities’ International Summer School (SUISS) in July and August 2014. Applications for these scholarships are now invited from undergraduate or postgraduate students from Commonwealth countries.

The summer school offers three courses in Text & Context: British and Irish Literature from 1900 to the Present and one course in Creative Writing. The literature courses offer extensive examination of theoretical approaches to Modernism, Scottish and Contemporary Literature, while the Creative Writing course allows students to develop their personal writing portfolio. SUISS is based at the University of Edinburgh which offers students excellent educational and accommodation facilities, the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful environment of the capital city, and to explore cultural and historical sites across Scotland.

The Scholarship

The British Council Scotland Commonwealth Scholarships will provide two 2-week Literature scholarships and one 4-week Creative Writing scholarship for 2014. They will cover the summer school’s course and accommodation fees, which include the cost of all tuition, accommodation, most meals, a social and cultural programme and full use of the facilities of Edinburgh University’s library. Please note the scholarships do not cover travel expenses or spending money.


Open to undergraduate or postgraduate students from across the world
