During the second half of this year, the universities of Oxford and LSE in the United Kingdom opened applications to their Master’s programs in Public Policy (Oxford and LSE) and Public Administration (only LSE). The Luksic Scholarships are full scholarships and are available to Chileans admitted to these international programs.
In a dynamic and constantly changing society, creating public policies that respond effectively to people’s needs is a great challenge. To address this problem, the University of Oxford and the London School of Economics (LSE) offers Master’s degrees related to public service that focus on training leaders with a strong social commitment.
Through these international programs, admitted students will be able to acquire new tools, both for the development of their careers and to generate changes in their professional environment. They will also be able to obtain new perspectives, theories, and practical knowledge to address real-world challenges in the field of public policy.
The content of these Master’s programs varies and their duration ranges from 9 to 24 months, allowing those interested to choose between the options that best suit their professional and personal needs.
To support the participation of Chilean candidates in these programs, the Luksic Scholars Foundation has collaborated with these universities to establish scholarship opportunities to cover the costs associated with the program, such as tuition and living expenses.
