Scholarships and financial aid

The Denys Holland Scholarship at University College London

The Denys Holland Scholarship aims to support undergraduate students from any country, who without the support of the scholarship would be unable to secure the funding required to study at UCL, and whom can demonstrate their intention to make full use of the activities offered by UCL and the Student Union.

The scholarship is awarded on the basis of financial need, subject to applicants demonstrating their intention to play a full part in extracurricular activities of UCL and the Students Union.

The scholarship is worth £9,000 per year for three years, subject to satisfactory academic progress and scholars may choose to use all or part of the scholarship to cover fees. Any remainder is paid to the scholar as a maintenance award.

Chevening Award Scholarships

Chevening is the UK Government’s international awards scheme aimed at developing global leaders. Funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations, Chevening offers two types of award – Chevening Scholarships and Chevening Fellowships – the recipients of which are personally selected by British embassies and high commissions throughout the world.

To be eligible for a Chevening Award you must:

  • Be a citizen of a Chevening-eligible country

  • Return to your country of citizenship for a minimum of two years after your award has ended

  • Have an undergraduate degree that will enable you to gain entry onto a postgraduate programme at a UK university. This is typically equivalent to an upper second-class 2:1 honours degree in the UK.

  • Have at least two years’ work experience (this may be up to five years for fellowship programmes, so please refer to your country page for further details)

  • Apply to three different eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of these choices

  • Meet the Chevening English language requirement
