Scholarship Awards 2023/2024

The African Leadership Centre (ALC), King's College London, still has places on its two MSc leadership programmes for the academic year 2023/24, entry in September 2023:

Our master's courses are concerned with the leadership dimensions of security and development across the Global South. We bring together students from around the world to participate in our multicultural and diverse learning environment. Students can transform their perspectives on global leadership and undergo personal development to translate their ideas into change-making opportunities within in their own contexts. All relevant information is on the below links (the application portal is also available here).

​**The MSc Global Leadership and Peacebuilding is a blended learning programme that offers both face-to-face and online modules and supports wholly online study where applicable. The MSc looks at the mutually reinforcing links between global leadership, peace and society, especially in developing nations. Through this, you will learn to understand the huge significance of global leadership processes and outcomes in peacebuilding efforts in the developing world and the impacts they have on society.

​**The MSc Leadership and Development is delivered fully in person at King's College London. The MSc focuses on the issues that highlight the significance of leadership processes and outcomes in the dynamics of development. Through this programme, you will gain an understanding of the increasingly key role leadership plays in development and transformation, with a focus on global south contexts.

** Funding Opportunities - 2 x Richemont International Scholarships. The African Leadership Centre is pleased to offer two master’s awards, each valued up to £11,760 (Home fees), for 2023/4 full-time entry for two students onto the MSc Global Leadership and Peacebuilding. This funding is available for African students in the UK applying for the full-time programme who will be present in London throughout the academic year.
