Scholarships for International Students

In order to encourage academic excellence, aid diversity, develop relationships with sponsors and offer real financial assistance in cases of hardship, we offer a range of scholarships to international students.

Applicants are strongly advised to apply for all sources of funding for which they might be eligible, both internal and external to the University. Securing the necessary funds to attend University can be a difficult and time consuming process and applicants should start to think about it as early as possible.

Scholarships are very competitive and it is important to make enquiries and apply to all possible sources of funding at an early stage.

The following pages outline the scholarships opportunities which are offered to international students:
