In addition to these Global Wales scholarship programmes, a good starting point is your chosen university’s website. Each institution also administers its own scholarships and funding programmes, and the international office will have a good idea of the options available to you.
You can find a list of scholarships on the British Council’s Study UK website, and the UK Council for International Student Affairs also has useful information.
Established programmes for international students include the prestigious Chevening Scholarships – providing funding for postgraduate courses at any UK university – and Commonwealth Scholarships for citizens of Commonwealth countries to study in the UK.
It is worth noting that most scholarships are very competitive. It is essential to set aside enough time to prepare your application, and to apply early.
Further information on funding options available for international students wishing to study in Wales can be found on our Study in Wales Funding page.
