Many students dream of studying abroad, but they often kill their dreams because of lacking financial resources. The higher the quality of education, the higher the expenses would be. However, many countries offer international scholarships and fellowships for talented aspirants.
The United Kingdom is one of the perfect examples to consistently maintain the top in the list of the world’s best education destinations among international students, especially for Indians. If we stick to the first statement, pursuing higher studies at a good college or top university becomes expensive.
However, several UK scholarships cover a student’s overall expenses, from university tuition fees to living allowance if s/he has impressive academic achievements.
Here’s a list of major scholarships with financial assistance offered by the UK government for international students who wish to study in the United Kingdom.
Commonwealth Scholarships are offered to talented individuals with the potential to make a positive impact on the global stage. Still, they cannot afford to study in the UK without financial support. This scholarship provides opportunities for around 800 students from low and middle-income Commonwealth countries to opt for postgraduation degrees from UK universities each year. In addition to it, the British government also offers Commonwealth PhD Scholarships and Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships.

Chevening Scholarships offer financial assistance to outstanding emerging leaders who pursue any one-year master’s degree at any university across the United Kingdom. As the authority wants people with passion, ideas, and influence to provide the solutions and leadership needed to create a better future through this scholarship, the scholarships are fully funded, including air, accommodation, and course fees. Over 1,500 international students get benefits from Chevening scholarships every year.
Jointly funded by the UK government’s GREAT Britain Campaign and the British Council with participating UK higher education institutions, GREAT Scholarships provide more than 300 scholarships from UK universities to international students. A Scholarship worth a minimum of 10,000 Euros is offered as tuition fees to students across India, opting for a one-year postgraduate course.
