GCU joins international scholarship scheme

The Tullow Oil Group Scholarship Scheme is available across Africa

The University has been accepted to join the Tullow Oil Group Scholarship Scheme, which allows degree holders from countries across Africa to study postgraduate programmes at GCU.
 
Applications to the scholarship, which is run in partnership with the British Council, are invited from graduates from Uganda, Gabon, Cote D’Ivoire, Kenya, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Mauritania and French Guiana to study in 2012-2013.
 
The scholarships are designed to address skills gaps in the oil and gas industry and support development in countries where the Tullow Oil Group operates.
Aidan Heavey, CEO of Tullow Oil Plc, said: “This scheme is about developing the potential that Tullow sees around it in Africa every day. Developing local talent for the oil industry makes good business sense for us, and it makes sense for oil producing countries to develop talent beyond oil.  This is a great opportunity for anyone who has thought about this and wants to make a real contribution to the future of their country."
Applicants can apply to study on GCU’s MSc Applied Instrumentation and Control; MSc Energy and Environmental ManagementMSc Sustainable Energy Technologies; MSc Waste Management; MSc Risk Management; MSc International Project Management; MSc Network Security; MSc Global Supply Chain and Logistics Management; MSc International Tourism Management; MSc International Human Resource Management; MAcc Accounting and Finance (Oil and Gas); MFin Finance; MSc International Business; MSc Management; MSc Operations and Business Management or MSc Economics and Statistical Analysis programmes.
