    There are many different types of scholarships available to international students in the U.K., some will be in the form of full tuition fee waivers. Some will come in the form of partial tuition fee waivers, and some will include living expenses and some won't. So it's very important that students do research the types of funding opportunities available and make sure they know whether or not they need to submit a separate application or whether or not it will be awarded automatically upon their course offer.
