Grants and Bursaries from other sources

A variety of public, private and non-profit organisations offer postgraduate scholarships and grants that will help you to fund your postgraduate study. These include university grants, awards provided by charities and trusts, and international and national award schemes.

Particularly at postgraduate research level the number of funded places available is a very small proportion of the total. Typically, UK-domiciled students will find better opportunities for external funding, for example studentships from the UK Research Councils, than students from the EU and overseas. The British Government does not tend to provide funding for overseas candidates directly beyond the provision of “fees only” awards for citizens of European Union member countries who apply to the United Kingdom Research Councils. Sometimes money is made available by the Government of the United Kingdom through overseas development schemes that are targeted towards providing education for citizens of beneficiary countries. Such schemes are normally administered by the British Council. Potential applicants from countries outside the United Kingdom are recommended to make inquires through the local office of the British Council. Read more
