University Scholarship Opportunities
Scholarships in the UK
Gaining a university scholarship to study at university in the UK is a highly competitive process at both undergraduate or postgraduate level. Whilst we can support you with your university application, we do not support undergraduate students in finding and applying for a university scholarship, however, we can direct you other organisations that can give you information on this. If you have secured a university scholarship from your home country that will pay for your education in the UK, or elsewhere in Europe, we can help you identify suitable universities to that offer English speaking degree courses.
However, we can support prospective PhD students who require help applying for a PhD university scholarship to study in the UK.
Finding UK scholarship opportunities
To help you with this, we have identified some useful resources as listed below to help you consider scholarships for international students, and how to get a scholarship in the UK. The British Council advertises a number of scholarship and funding schemes. There are a number of scholarship schemes run by governments, charities and other organisations. Ask your Ministry of Education, your local British Council office, or your teachers, if they know of any schemes for students in your country. There are a few global schemes you may want to have a look at: Chevening UK government university scholarships, Erasmus scholarships and Royal Society grants.
Depending on your nationality, you may be eligible for a loan or financial support from the UK government. Visit the UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs) website for more details. Scholars 4 Dev advertise UK scholarships, grants and fellowship opportunities for international students.
Even with financial support on scholarships, it is likely that you will have to pay some costs yourself towards your university education. Make sure you find out what is and is not covered by your scholarship or financial support scheme.
