MA Islam and Sustainable Development – scholarships

MA Islam and Sustainable Development – scholarships for this course are available for suitable applicants

The MA Islam and Sustainable Development course (validated by Newman University) is designed to help professionals (including staff from NGOs and the charity sector) engaged in development work, especially those working in the context of Muslim communities, to gain insights into the perspectives, frameworks and approaches employed in sustainable development. Such knowledge enables students to develop strategic and relevant projects within a Muslim context to alleviate poverty, improve management of the environment, develop long-term sustainable development solutions, and contribute to the economic and social development of societies.

We invite you to consider offering your staff who are engaged in, or are considering engagement in development projects, the opportunity to join this one-year full-time or two-year part-time course as part of their professional development. Full-time students attend taught sessions 2 days per week for 24 weeks of the year. On completion of the formally taught modules, they work for three more months on producing a dissertation, which can be based on a project related to their employment. Part-time students attend one day a week and complete the course within two years.

I am delighted that the Aziz Foundation now offers scholarships (fees only) to applicants who are offered a place on this course at the Markfield Institute. As a limited number of scholarships are available your staff are advised to apply before 30 June 2022. Students from England are also eligible to apply for student loans.
