Every year close to 500,000 students from 200 nations come study in UK at a school, college or university and 600,000 more come to do an English language course.
In addition, over 500,000 international students each year take a UK qualification overseas – for example, online or at a UK overseas campus.
The UK has a long history of welcoming international students from around the globe. And with a reputation for academic excellence, it’s easy to see why so many international students choose a UK education.
Scholarships, grants, bursaries, fellowships, financial awards, loans… there are many financial support options for international students who wish to study on a UK course. Demand for scholarships is always greater than supply; to maximise your chances, apply as early as you can.
