An exciting opportunity to pursue studies in the UK
The British Embassy Tunis is pleased to announce that the Mansion House Scholarship Scheme are accepting applications to fund a scholarship for a student or a young business executive from Tunisia to travel to the United Kingdom to study or to undertake training or work experience in the Financial Services Sector.
The British Embassy aims to attract the brightest and best candidates from the Tunisian financial services sector or Government Ministries to strengthen links with the UK’s financial services sector and in particular with the City of London, with a view to long- term benefit to both sides.
Applicants to the Mansion House Scholarship Scheme must be graduates with at least a Bachelor’s degree or better, from a reputable University and they must want to study or take a training course in a topic related to financial services. Ideally applicants should be under 35 years old.
If applicants for the scholarship are planning to attend a British University, they must study at Masters’ level or equivalent and must have secured their own offer of admission for the academic year 2014/2015. Similarly, finding a vacancy for courses or business training attachments in the City is the responsibility of the applicant. The British Embassy Tunis and the Mansion House cannot offer support in this area.
The deadline to accept complete applications is 15 May 2014.
Applications sent after the deadline will not be considered. As we’re expecting a high volume of applications – only successful applicants will be contacted. The successful applicant will be announced formally by the Lord Mayor of London in June.
