The UK is a world-class leader for Higher Education. It’s then not so surprising that courses here come with quite the price tag for the privilege. If you’re aiming to study in the UK, but need help with funding to do so, there are many scholarships that may be suitable.
With the British Government and various UK Universities offering scholarship schemes, here we take a look at some of the most attractive from many of the UK’s top institutions.
