There are many sources of funding if you want to study in the UK.TheBritish Government and other UK organisations provide a number ofscholarships and awards for international students.
A. Who should I approach?
-Start with your own Ministry or Department of Education. It should beable to give you information about the funding available.
-The British Council. They may have an office in your own country and will tell you about the relevant schemes.
-If there's no British Council locally, try the British Embassy orHigh Commission.
B. How Do I Apply?
-Many grant-making organisations have strict requirements which youmust meet so read the conditions carefully.
-Apply for your grant at least one year before the start of yourcourse and make sure you know the deadline for applying.
-Fill in the application form clearly and concisely. Use thegrant-making body's application form if there is one.
Useful tip: The grant-making bodies usually award only small amountsof money, which will not cover the full cost of tuition fees andliving expenses, so make sure you have enough money for your fees andliving needs. It's nearly impossible to organise financial help once you're here and you may be refused UK entry without proof ofsufficient funds.
