GREAT scholarship - India and Malaysia

This year, in partnership with the British Council and the GREAT Britain Campaign, Staffordshire University are offering two international scholarships - one to an offer holder in India and one to an offer holder in Malaysia applying for full time, postgraduate-taught courses for September 2021.

The GREAT Scholarships 2021 programme, launched by the British Council together with 41 UK universities, supports postgraduate students from Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Thailand to access world-class UK higher education opportunities.

The scholarship programme offers financial support of a minimum of £10,000 to students pursuing one year postgraduate study in the UK. Students can apply for courses in a range of subjects, at the 41 institutions across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Staffordshire University’s participation in the GREAT Britain Campaign represents our commitment to providing world-class education and promoting the UK as a GREAT place to visit, study and do business.

Successful students will receive the funds as a £10,000 reduction in their tuition fees for their Master’s Taught course.
