Global Sustainable Development launches new postgraduate programmes. From September 2021 onwards the new MASc will be available, offering a combination of an Arts (MA) and Sciences (MSc) award. Based in the School for Cross-faculty Studies, their academic home is a natural place to offer a combination of these awards, and they are one of the first Master’s courses in the UK to be doing so.
We are delighted to announce that Hala Alhaffir, a MASc in Global Sustainable Development offer holder, has been successful in securing two prestigious international scholarships to enable her to take up a place on our new programme. Hala will be jointly funded by Chevening and the Saïd Foundation. A Chevening Scholarship ‘enables outstanding emerging leaders from all over the world to pursue one-year master’s degrees in the UK’. The Saïd Foundation scholarships are ‘targeted towards outstanding individuals with leadership potential who will be drivers of positive change’.
We spoke to Hala to find out more about her background and her plans for the future.
The School for Cross-faculty Studies is delighted to announce that it has been successful in its application for the Athena SWAN Bronze Award. We are now engaged in implementing our five-year Athena SWAN Action Plan.
