MRS Advanced Certificate bursary deadline on March 15th 2022

We know it’s hard to find funding for professional qualifications right now, so don’t miss the MRS Advanced Certificate bursary deadline on March 15th 2022. You can apply for an MRBA Skills bursary up to and including the 15th of March. If you’re successful, you can join our MRS Advanced Certificate course in August 2022.


It’s a super career move

Just ask previous bursary winners! For instance, MRBA Skills bursary winner Kate is forging a career in social research. Or read Paulina’s story, who’s used her MRBA Skills bursary to make a career change in market research after seven years as a project manager on the operational side.


MRBA Skills bursaries are valid for any MRS Advanced Certificate course

With an MRBA Skills bursary, you can apply for any of our MRS Advanced Certificate courses. You can opt to join our online course in January, or our face-to-face course. It’s worth noting that our face-to-face course may be delivered fully or partially online, depending on what Covid-related restrictions are in place at the time.
