Cambridge LLM Commonwealth Shared Scholarship 2015


Elite
Hey, I have been offered admission to Cambridge LLM for 2015-16, and have applied for the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme. I had a few questions in mind, if someone could kindly clarify.

Firstly, do I have to accept the offer to be considered for the scholarship?

Secondly, Could someone give me a brief idea of the tentative decision date and the general credential of former Commonwealth Scholars at Cambridge?

Secondly, will I be able to stay back in UK to pursue doctoral studies upon completion of my LLM?

You dont have to accept the offer to be considered for the scholarship but it would be good since the Commission can see how your Camsis looks like and know that you have not yet accepted. It is safe to accept the offer and later withdraw it if you do not get any funding.

Decisions are usually out in June or thereabouts. Sue Osterfield will choose whose application moves on to the CSC and that will be indicated in your EAS and once your application moves to CSC, you are pretty much in. If it stays stuck at nominating agency, you are either reserved or rejected.

One of the requirements of the scholarship is to return to your home country after studies.

Hello everyone!

What I recall seeing in the CSC booklet is that the nominating agency must do so by April 30. So I think it's safe to assume that if by that date there's no movement to the CSC then the nomination wasn't made. It's an extremely competitive process so congrats on getting thus far :)

I agree! I'm disappointed that mine hasn't moved but I'm happy that there is at least some indication that you can go by even if official word isn't forthcoming.

Which College are you heading to?

It is quite interesting that Sue Osterfield has not filled in the agency input by now because it gives you the clue on whether you satisfied them or did not.

No, it's filled out. It just hasn't moved from the University which I think is an indication that whilst I may have been capable of being nominated having satisfied the criteria, since there is not an unlimited number of nominations possible, I have not been selected as a nominee.

Hi @Elite. Could you share a little about your credentials so we can understand what they look for in an applicant? Thanks

In essence, it means you're a 'reserve' candidate, and if any of the candidates refuse to take the scholarship, you're next in line.

Yes I understand that :) but I also understand that I'm not the only reserve candidate certainly and it's unlikely that someone will give up the opportunity to fulfill the conditions to receive full funding to Cambridge so I'm focused on finding and exploring alternative options.

I was sent a mail to apply for the commonwealth shared scholarship and I did apply by the 16th. However, my Agency Input hasn't been filled yet. This probably means that I've been rejected right, or is there still a chance I'll be nominated?

Anyone else in the same place?
