The best sources for UK scholarships

May 13, 2011

If you are struggling to pay for your degree, you will want to check out scholarships and bursaries.  Butt how do you apply for them, and where do you find out about them?  Here are some of the best sources for scholarships for study in the UK:

Every university has its own individual scholarships, so first, call the bursar’s office of your chosen university and ask for a list.

Hotcourses have a fantastic scholarship search. You input the course you want, at the level you want and indicate the area you live in. It also has a side menu with information on hardship funds, disabled student funding sources and acedemic excellence awards.

Directgov has a comprehensive page of information about scholarships and bursaries. Here you find advice on how to apply, how to calculate your finances, minimum bursary payments and other sources of funding.

If you are a foreign student, try Study Overseas. They have a list of scholarships for study in the UK

Education UK has details of scholarships for international postgraduate students.

Try bursaries and scholarships first when finding funding for university or study. They can often be very easy to obtain, if you fulfill the criteria. The Bursar’s office at your college can help you apply. One bursary or scholarship can be worth over £10,000, leaving you much less to find.

But don’t worry! If you don’t qualify or win a scholarship, you can always apply for business sponsorship, apply to charities or run your own fundraising events. Scroll down this blog for more sponsorship articles, or check out Free Degrees, a complete guide to raising over £26,000 to pay for your studies.
