MLA College is excited to announce our brand new, innovative BSc (Hons) Global Sustainable Development programme.

The programme is developed in collaboration with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research affiliated International Training Center for Authorities and Leaders, CIFAL Istanbul.  The programme follows a pathway of activity that inculcates high expectations of study and research practice, leverages the power of open source solutions to allow those less economically able to participate in the understanding of their world, and then takes those lessons back out into their local communities to help them deliver, in ways small or large, against the UN SDGs.

More information is available on our website.

MLA College is pleased to announce it will be awarding a number of bursaries in 2020/2021 to applicants who have annual incomes of less than £25,000 (or equivalent). Bursaries will also be available for women (UK or non-UK residents) to support Women into Maritime and Women into Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM).

Each bursary awarded will be for the period of registration and the single payment of £500 will be made on completion of the initial enrolment process and payment of tuition fees, following the production of the required evidence.  Please note this is not an annual award.

More information regarding this scheme can be found on our website.
