Together with the British Council, we are delighted to offer a dedicated scholarship of £10,000, to a student from Nigeria applying to study one of our postgraduate taught degrees.

This scholarship scheme is part of the GREAT Scholarships campaign, which has been launched by the British Council together with UK universities to support more students in Nigeria to get access to excellent UK higher education opportunities.

The total value of the scholarship scheme is nearly £1 million. This scholarship scheme will offer an exciting opportunity for Indian students wishing to get financial support to pursue study on degree levels in the UK. Students can apply for courses in subjects including engineering, law, business, art and design, biosciences, IT and more, at institutions across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
