Scholarships In Wales

Scholarships, grants, and bursaries may be available to international students who attend schools in Wales. Always visit the websites of the various universities to see if any scholarships are offered.

In addition, you might be qualified for some of the following scholarships:

Chevening Scholarships

Outstanding students who desire to finance a one-year Master’s degree can apply for these scholarships. Make sure your institution and programme of study are Chevening partners by using the Chevening course finder. Students must exhibit leadership and decision-making abilities in a variety of contexts, such as business, media, politics, and academics, in order to be considered for this award.

Commonwealth Scholarships and Fellowships

The UK office of the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission provides these financing options. Students from Commonwealth nations can apply for over 900 scholarships and fellowships each year to help pay for their postgraduate studies in Wales.

Marshall Scholarships for American Students

There are 40 US grads who can apply for these scholarships. To apply, students must have a minimum GPA of 3.7 and a degree that was conferred within the previous three years. This financial aid package covers tuition fees, living expenses, travel (flights and daily commute), and a portion of the cost of supporting a spouse who is dependent.

If you are from the US, Vietnam, India, or the European Union, there are some special scholarships available for universities in Wales:
