Funding specific to international students:
The schemes listed are the main funding awards for international students.
Most funding schemes offer partial assistance and funding bodies have strict criteria and competition for awards can be fierce.
Therefore it's worth remembering to follow any instructions for how to make an application and make sure you apply before the deadline (which can be over a year before the start of your programme).
If you are seeking financial assistance you should first contact your own Ministry of Education who will be able to advise you on your own government's schemes for students studying abroad.
The British Council in your country should also be able to tell you of any British scholarship schemes for which you are eligible.
If there is no British Council office, then contact your nearest British Embassy or High Commission.
Some international organisations such as UNESCO and WHO operate scholarship schemes, usually for developing countries.
In addition voluntary organisations such as religious bodies and charities sometimes award small bursaries.
Subject-Specific Scholarships and Bursaries.
A number of Schools offer scholarships for students on specific degree programmes or subjects, and travel bursaries for study abroad. See our list of current Subject-Specific Scholarships.
