Postgraduate Students from Developing Countries Can Get Full Scholarships at Westminster University
Posted On April 9, 2017
Westminster University offers a wide range of scholarships, for international undergraduate and postgraduate students. There are four types of scholarships offered by the Westminster University: full scholarships, (which cover not only tuition, but also accommodation, transport to and from UK, and living expenses), full tuition fee scholarships (which awards only the cost of tuition), half tuition fee scholarships (the students receive only 50% of the tuition cost) and part tuition fee scholarships (which awards up to 50% of the tuition costs).
International students can only apply for one type of scholarship. Also, the full scholarships and full tuition fee scholarships are not available for international MBA students.
Students who are interested in this scholarship must first apply for and receive a place at a postgraduate program at the Westminster University. You can find more information about the available postgraduate subjects here.
For students interested in starting the postgraduate program in January 2018, must apply for a scholarship until 13 October 2017. These scholarships are for one-year master programs and are available for UK, European Union and international students.
The Westminster International Scholarships is a full scholarship (tuition, accommodation, living expenses and transport), offered to students from developing countries, who hold a degree corresponding to a UK First Class Honors degree, who prove they are in financial need and have a development potential. Another scholarship for students starting their academic year in January 2018 is a Full fee tuition fee, with the same requirements as the Westminster International Scholarship. Students who have received a place at a postgraduate program at Westminster University can also apply for one of the two half-tuition fee scholarships or for one of the two partial tuition fee available.
Applicants can find out more information about these scholarships here.
At Westminster University, other full scholarships for international postgraduate students are offered in cooperation with different organizations and trusts who usually aim to help students from developing countries to get a chance to higher education. For instance, students refugees from South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda or Kenya can apply for a full scholarship which is awarded in conjunction with the Windle Trust International. Full scholarships are also granted especially to students from Asia, Latin and Central America or from small island developing countries. Applicants coming from regions or countries affected by natural or man-made disasters can also receive a scholarship, through the Disaster Regeneration Scholarship.
