These scholarships are awarded either on merit or on nomination by home governments. There are a limited number of undergraduate scholarships available.

Scholarships funded by institutions

Institutions offer a range of scholarships designed to help international students fund the cost of their study. These scholarships may be country-specific or targeted to particular areas of study.

Sponsored students

Sponsored students are those who receive financial support for their study and/or other agreed educational expenses from sources other than from their own funds. To be recognised by an institution as a sponsored student, you must be funded under an agreement with a sponsoring authority recognised by the institution.
