Many individual universities will offer scholarships for international students. It’s worth students researching their preferred UK university. Many will have information about scholarships and financial aid on their own website. Here are a few examples:
Bristol University - Think Big! Scholarships
Bristol University offers these scholarships to overseas students. Bristol applicants can apply for bursaries worth between £5,000 and £20,000.
President’s Undergraduate Scholarships - Imperial College London
This is an example of a university scholarship awarded to someone who can demonstrate academic excellence. Imperial College awards 112 of these scholarships a year.
This is one example of a scholarship that has no formal application process - instead, students are nominated by the university’s academic department if they believe the applicant has demonstrated sufficient ability.
The University of Manchester
The University of Manchester is an example of a university where students would have to check with an individual faculty or school within the university. Because Manchester is one of the largest universities in the UK, different departments and faculties will treat scholarships slightly differently.
The University of Westminster Undergraduate Scholarships for Developing Country Students
This is a very specific scholarship for students of specific nationalities. As you may have guessed, these are full scholarships for international students from developing countries. If you visit the university’s website, they will give you a list of developed countries. If your students’ country is not on this list, they would be considered eligible.
University of Liverpool Vice-Chancellor’s International Attainment Scholarship
This is a good example of a scholarship for non-EU international students. It’s worth noting that this scholarship is only available to students who are applying for non-clinical undergraduate degrees. This scholarship is only available in the first year of study and students will receive the following financial support.
- £2,500 deducted from their fees if they achieve a minimum A*AA grades in their A-levels (or the equivalent grade in an international qualification)
- £2,000 deducted from their fees if they achieve AAB grades or above in their A-levels or equivalent international qualification.
