Special bursaries for our MRS Advanced Certificate courses

Help is at hand

We know it’s hard to pay for qualifications right now, so we’ve worked with MRBA Skills to bring you a solution! They’ve launched special lockdown bursaries, and we’ve launched a Special Edition MRS Advanced Certificate online course.

You can apply for one of MRBA Skills’ Special Skills Lockdown Bursaries between 28 April and 31 May. If you’re successful, you can join our Special Edition MRS Advanced Certificate online course immediately!

Bursaries are valid for any MRS Advanced Certificate course

The Special Skills Lockdown Bursaries are valid for any of our MRS Advanced Certificate courses, as long as you’re eligible.

For instance, you can use one of these bursaries to join our Special Edition MRS Advanced Certificate online course. It went live on 15 April. This one-off early start is designed to make things just a little bit easier for anyone who’s been affected by the Covid-19 crisis.

If you’ve been furloughed or made redundant, you can use your free time to gain a valuable qualification. And if you’re working full-time and are busier than ever, the early start means you can complete the course at a slower pace. The assessment for this course takes place in January 2021, so there’s really no pressure.

You can also use the Special Skills Lockdown Bursaries to join our upcoming MRS Advanced Certificate face-to-face course. This starts on 24 August 2020.

The bursaries have generous eligibility criteria

To qualify for one of the Special Skills Lockdown Bursaries, one of the following needs to apply:

  • You work for an agency with an annual turnover of less than £2 million and you earn less than £35,000 annually, OR
  • You work for a client-side firm whose annual insight spend is less than £200,000 and you earn less than £35,000 annually, OR
  • You’re a freelancer researcher with an annual income of less than £50,000, OR
  • You’ve been made redundant from a research role, and want a new role in UK market or social research
