The UK has long been a premier destination for Indian students and professionals seeking to advance their careers, known for its academic excellence, modern infrastructure, and distinguished faculty. In terms of postgraduate education, the presence of one-year master's programmes and the introduction of the new Graduate Route, make the UK an excellent option. That said, abroad comes with financial considerations, but collaborative efforts between the UK and India facilitate student mobility, offering access to scholarships worth millions of pounds. Scholarships play a vital role in easing financial burdens for international students. The UK government, universities and organisations like the British Council, provide study opportunities that spark brighter futures by providing extensive scholarship support, ensuring accessibility to education.

Details:

For the academic year 2024-25, 26 postgraduate GREAT Scholarships are on offer at 26 UK universities, covering a wide range of subjects including Humanities, Business, Finance, Dance, Psychology, Design, Marketing, and more. Additionally, Indian students can apply for specialised scholarships in areas such as Justice and Law, Environmental Sciences, and Climate Change.

Each GREAT scholarship is valued at a minimum of £10,000, intended to offset tuition fees for one-year postgraduate programmes. However, students should verify the specific amount for each scholarship, as some may offer more substantial funding. Further details can be obtained by visiting the Study UK website's GREAT Scholarships section and navigating to the individual university pages.

Application Process:

To initiate the scholarship application process, students are advised to visit the university's webpage to obtain detailed information regarding the scholarship. From there, they should proceed to follow the provided link to the university's official website and submit applications for individual scholarships following the specified instructions. It is imperative for students to take note of the unique application deadlines for each institution, as they may differ. Upon successful selection, applicants will receive notification from the respective universities. Subsequently, scholarship funds will be disbursed following the completion of student registration. Students are advised to check with specific universities to find out the last date for submission of the applications.

Terms and Conditions:

Several conditions apply to GREAT scholarships, including eligibility limited to passport holders of designated target countries and the scholarship's sole use toward tuition fees. UK HEIs should award scholarships by June 30, 2024, although application deadlines may vary by institution. The Study UK team must be informed of any additional scholarships awarded to GREAT scholars in the same academic year.

Selection Criteria:

GREAT scholars are required to meet several criteria to qualify for participation in the GREAT Scholarships. Firstly, they must hold citizenship in one of the designated GREAT target countries. Additionally, they should possess an undergraduate degree that meets the requirements for entry into a postgraduate programme at a participating UK university. Motivation and academic aptitude are essential qualities, as scholars should demonstrate their ability to excel in a UK postgraduate taught course. Moreover, applicants must display active involvement in their chosen field, either through work experience or a demonstrated interest in the proposed subject area. Proficiency in English and adherence to the academic prerequisites of UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are further prerequisites.

Additional Information:

Students interested in applying for scholarships should obtain an offer from a participating university and ensure they meet all course prerequisites. Application deadlines vary by university, typically falling between late March and early June. Students are encouraged to review eligibility criteria, participating institutions, course offerings, and specific deadlines on the Scholarship page for further information.
