GREAT Scholarships

GREAT scholarships are scholarships to study at UK universities across a variety of subjects, for students from 18 countries. 

Each scholarship is worth a minimum of £10,000 towards tuition fees for a one-year taught postgraduate course. 

Each scholarship is jointly funded by the UK government’s GREAT Britain Campaign and the British Council with participating UK higher education institutions. 

As part of the programme, all GREAT scholars will be invited to a welcome event in the first semester and a networking event in the second semester. 

  • I don’t come from a very wealthy background, but due to receiving the GREAT Scholarship I was able to come here and pay my tuition fees. The fact that I can just focus on being present and in the room, and concentrate on doing the best in my studies is… well… great!
