Since 2014 Middlesex University has been welcoming recipients of the Dominican Republic’s MESCyT scholarship onto our wide range of master’s programmes. The scholarship covers tuition fees, accommodation costs and monthly living stipend for MESCyT master’s students studying overseas. In September 2016 Middlesex welcomed a group of 24 students (pictured above) to study with us.
Reasons MESCyT Students choose Middlesex
Applying to Middlesex
Students will need to apply directly to Middlesex to receive an offer to study, and will need to apply directly to MESCyT to apply for the scholarship, specifying the Middlesex programme in the application form.
Visit the MESCyT website for more information and scholarship application portal.
To apply to our master’s programmes, you must submit an application via our postgraduate application portal here. You will need the following supporting documents:
Please bear in mind that if any of the documents are in a language other than English, you must submit the original and an officially translated copy.
Accommodation for MESCyT Students
MESCyT covers the accommodation costs and this is paid directly to the university. The regional office blocks a set of rooms with the number of students that have been granted a scholarship. You do not need to apply to a hall of accommodation. However, please be aware that the bedroom provided will not be available past next year’s entry date. Once your scholarships have been confirmed by the Ministry, you will receive a contract of accommodation which you must sign and return. No deposit fee is required.
Confirmation of Acceptance of Students (CAS)
The Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies is a code needed to apply for a student visa. You may begin a visa application at any point, but you must not submit a visa application until you receive your unique CAS. The university can only send out CAS to students who provide a translated document that confirms their financial sponsorship from MESCyT.
