Getting a scholarship in England is an additional way of financing your studies. Scholarships for UK Universities may also be called bursaries or studentships or special aids. Most of these scholarships are for postgraduate students. That is they are awarded to postgraduate students aiming to a Master’s degree (MSc, MPhil) or a Doctorate (PhD). The amounts provided by scholarships or fellowships and their corresponding conditions may vary. Some companies or organizations in cooperation with British Universities offer special scholarships that are called mentoring scholarships. Such a scholarship is granted only in case the graduate decides to work for 1 year after completing the studies. A mentoring scholarship has an extra advantage since an opportunity for work with satisfactory earnings is given.
Obviously it is not easy for a student to obtain any type of scholarship. When applying for a scholarship, the candidate should convince that he or she deserves this scholarship. However, because Anglia Foundation has great experience in the field, we can explore all the available scholarship options and inform you. We can process the application forms on your behalf with relatively good chances of success.
