For PhD and Research students, please make sure you have identified and secured a source of funding (e.g. scholarship, self-funding with partial scholarship, Government or other sponsor etc) for your tuition fees and living costs BEFORE submitting an application to study.

There are many government and non-government organisations that provide scholarship schemes enabling international students to source funding to study at a UK university. Students should contact the Ministry of Education or Education Department in their country, as they should have details of scholarship opportunities for students wishing to study overseas. They will also be able to advise the government's conditions for studying abroad. Students should also contact the British Council office in the country of origin, which should have details of British scholarship schemes. If there is no British Council office in the country, then the nearest British Embassy or High Commission should be contacted.

Please see below for other scholarship and funding options in your country.
