An island off the coast of northwestern Europe, the United Kingdom (UK) consists of Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) and Northern Ireland.
It might be a relief to know that there are hundreds of scholarships and bursaries available to international students who want to study in the UK. As well as key schemes run by the UK government, individual universities also have their own scholarships and bursaries, so it’s well worth doing your research to check whether you’re eligible to apply.
All international students, apart from Swiss nationals and those from the EU/EEA states are likely to require a visa in order to study in the UK.
UK visas are currently managed by the UK Visas and Immigration, who have a comprehensive and easy to follow website which provides all the information you need to determine whether you’ll need a visa, and which one to apply for.
