UK Scholarships for Malaysian Students

Besides its latest move to grant international students a two-year post-study work visa, the UK government invests heavily in scholarships to attract students from all over the world.

Universities and institutions in the UK, too, offer a range of scholarships, bursaries and grants to international students. Before applying to any of these scholarships, do check the eligibility requirements and criteria, along with the closing date.

The primary 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.

However, do note that the amount of funds available and the type of award varies between institutions. As competition is high when it comes to applying for scholarships, we recommend that you start the application process about eight to 12 months before the intake starts. If you are unsure, our friendly counsellors are more than happy to help guide you.

Chevening Scholarship

One example of a UK scholarship that Malaysian students can apply for, is the British Chevening Scholarships for International Students.

It is the government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as well as partner organisations.

This initiative supports talented professionals who have shown prior leadership skills and exceptional performance in their respective fields. The Chevening Scholarship will often cover university tuition fees, monthly allowance, and even an economy class return airfare to the UK - apart from other additional grants and allowances for essential expenditure.

Keep in mind

Every scholarship has its own eligibility criteria. In some cases, a straightforward application is all that it takes to secure the scholarship. For research centric programs, you may have to submit written assignments. 

While scholarships are useful in enhancing your study abroad adventure, other key benefits of studying in the UK include being able to tap into an excellent higher education system (which gives you a push when you kick-start your career), at the same time reveling in the compelling history and culture of the country.

Securing a good scholarship can help bring down your cost of studying internationally considerably. If you wish to explore university wise options, speak with your IDP counsellor for specific details. They can also assist you in finding the right scholarship.
