International students

Together with the British Council we offer fully funded scholarships for female students from South Asia. They must be interested in pursuing a master's degree related to climate change or in the STEM fields.

If you are an international student from Central or South Asia, visit out International Students website. You’ll find information about entry requirements, scholarships and more for your country.

Global opportunities

We have a strategic partnership with the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC). We've placed student interns at several ICSC member sites, including the Institute for Development of Freedom of Information in Georgia.

Students actively promote social justice and a universal culture of human rights. They work to:

  • empower marginalised communities
  • counter hate speech and violent extremism
  • preserve the memory of victims of human rights violations

We offer opportunities to travel to Central and South Asia and other global destinations through:

  • exchanges
  • summer programmes
  • volunteering
  • work opportunities
