In collaboration with CIFAL City of London and UNITAR, we now offer a United Nations Scholarship Scheme.

This provides a 10% tuition fee reduction for all United Nations employees and their immediate families. The programmes, delivered by MLA College, are validated and awarded by the University of Plymouth, and have been created alongside industry experts to provide individuals with specific knowledge and skills required for development within their sectors.

Through collaboration with CIFAL City of London, we are actively driving the message that ‘Education’ is the only way we can make realistic changes to world we live in’ and:

  • Provide a sound, and critical, understanding of sustainable development, particularly with reference to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • Show how sustainability is conceived and practiced differently across the globe.
  • Provide key theoretical and practical knowledge of a range of subjects that are important considerations within the SDGs.
  • Enable students to understand the role of individuals, communities, and institutions in delivering sustainable development.
  • Foster debate and enable students to express reasoned, evidence-based arguments.

This scheme goes live on the 23rd May 2023 and is valid for terms starting after this date.
