However, there are several scholarship and incentive schemes available to international students studying at UWS.
This scholarship is available to full-time, self-funded (non-EU) students who are studying undergraduate or postgraduate courses in UWS Scottish campuses only. This is designed for students who have achieved academic excellence prior to applying to UWS.
Students studying MBA and DBA are not eligible for this scholarship.

While the University can accept applications from all students for help meeting the cost of childcare, as an international student you will be unable to claim any further funding, such as discretionary or hardship funds, to help meet your living costs. You should therefore ensure you carefully consider the financial implications of study and take the time to plan ahead appropriately.Find out more about childcare funds
