Funding for International Students

The Scottish Government does not provide any statutory student funding for international students studying in Scotland.

However, there are several scholarship and incentive schemes available to international students studying at UWS.

UWS Global Scholarships - September 2020 entry

UWS is delighted to offer a limited number of scholarships, aimed at international students who have achieved academic excellence:

  • 65% or higher in the High School/College exams for Undergraduate applicants

In exceptional circumstances, we may also consider Global Scholarship applications from applicants who are able to provide other strong evidence of their academic excellence and demonstrate their commitment and motivation to study at UWS through a strong scholarship application.

Please note the following:

  • The Global Scholarship should be applied for once you have an unconditional offer and prior to CAS being issued
  • The Scholarship is awarded for each year of your undergraduate degree
  • No Scholarships will be awarded retrospectively

Additional Funding

Childcare | Funding for International UWS Students Childcare | University of the West of Scotland

Childcare

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.
