Worshipful Company of Insurers Scholarship is an award offered by Bayes Business School in junction with City University London.
The Worshipful Company of Insurers and Bayes Business School (formerly the Cass Business School) established a scholarship scheme in 2018 for students taking the MSc in Insurance and Risk Management at the School. Under the scheme, every year two students have their fees met in full.
Scholars are expected to be drawn from areas of the UK considered to be relatively lacking in educational opportunity and they must also be able to demonstrate financial need. They will probably have attended schools in the state sector. They will have been active in their local community, and be able to explain how the MSc will complement their career plans.
The MSc is largely a taught course, although it includes a dissertation requirement. It provides significant credits towards the ACII – the core insurance qualification assessed by the Chartered Insurance Institute.
The MSc dissertation can be accepted by the CII as fulfilling the academic requirements for progress to the FCII. This degree also gains some exemptions from the requirements of the Institute of Risk Management qualifications.
The MSc will provide a significant differentiator for graduates when applying for roles in insurance and risk management.
Eligibility and Application Process
- Entry to the MSc requires a 2:1at first degree level.
- Those wishing to be considered for sponsorship should first apply to the WCI using the application form.
- Successful applicants will also need to apply to the Bayes Business School following the standard procedure before the sponsorship can be confirmed, although it is intended that the scholarship application process will remove most of the uncertainty from this stage.
