Scholarships for international students wanting to study in the UK and Europe

Deciding to study abroad is an investment in every student’s future. A degree from a prestigious institution can improve a student’s options for employability and overall quality of life. However, finding one that fits a student’s budget and requirements can be exhaustive.

For education counsellors, it is disappointing to know that the students you are counselling have the academic aptitude and drive to get into a highly-regarded institution but may not have the financial capability to gain entry into one.

Luckily, most institutions offer scholarships and bursaries to help international students gain entry to a program or for the smart ones; it might even stretch to the whole duration of their program. The most common funding option available is a bursary that offers a tuition fee discount and may or may not have additional academic requirements on top of the standard entry requirements.

For students planning to study in the UK or European universities, here are some scholarship opportunities that you should let your students know about:
