Scholarships to study in the UK

Here's a list of scholarships for Indian students.

The UK has some of the highest ranked institutions in the world, but this can come at a price. However, if you plan well in advance, you can apply to a range of scholarships offered by UK Universities and Colleges. Open to meritorious international students to help them fund their studies, these can be partial or fully paid, depending on the criteria, course and the institution. Many scholarships and bursaries are also offered by the government, and various private and public establishments as well. When applying to any of these scholarships, make sure you check the criteria carefully, along with the application closing date.

MyScholarship by IDP

Let’s help you find the best available scholarships to ease your financial burden when you go off to study in the UK! Introducing our new video series – MyScholarship, where you will find all scholarship-related information in one place! So go ahead, browse it up.

What is the criteria for applying to scholarships?
The most important criterion for most scholarships is a good academic score, however, it also depends on factors such as your chosen destination, subject and level. In some scholarships, factors like extracurricular activities, and volunteering can also be used to advantage. Keep in mind that every scholarship has its own eligibility criteria. While in some, a mere application may suffice, while for others you may have to fulfil several other conditions. For instance, in research centric programs, you may have to submit written assignments. Do not hesitate to contact the university admission centre if you have any doubts.

What amount of money is available through scholarships?
The amount of money available and the type of award varies between institutions. Certain research programs may provide up to 100% of the tuition fee besides covering a part of your living expenditures. You may experience higher competition when you apply for government scholarships in comparison to the university scholarships. So, we suggest you to start with the procedure about 8-12 months before your preferred intake begins. If you get stuck anywhere, IDP counsellors will be more than happy to guide you through.

Here’s an overview of some of the popular scholarships you can apply to as an Indian student.
