Study in the UK: Scholarships

Most institutions, even the most prestigious ones, generally charge the same tuition fees. As an international student, you can expect to pay around £20,000 on average. Programs that require more equipment and contact time, like clinical degrees, cost almost double that amount. 

Three scholarships are available specifically for international students to study in the UK:

Chevening Scholarships

These scholarships are available to outstanding students to fund a one-year master’s degree. Use the Chevening course finder to make sure your institution and program of study are Chevening partners. To be eligible for this award, students must demonstrate leadership and decision-making skills across a range of areas, including business, media, politics and academia.
