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 merit-based scholarship

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.

Scholarship amount

£1,500

How to apply

Applications are made through an online form.

Progression scholarship

This scholarship is available to self-funded (non-EU) students at UWS who have maintained a good attendance of 85% minimum and overall score of 69% or higher across modules in their first year of study.

Scholarship amount

£1,000

How to apply

Contact your School Service Delivery Coordinator (International).

Scotland's Saltire Scholarships

This scholarship is available to self-funded (non-EU) students applying to UWS from the following regions:

  • Canada
  • China
  • India
  • Pakistan
  • United States of America

This scholarship is now closed for 2017/18. Applications for 2018/19 will reopen in Spring 2018

Additional Funding

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.

Alternative Funding Sources

If there isn’t a statutory source of funding for you or your course, you may wish to consider more alternative sources of funding such as trust funds and scholarships.

Worried about student debt?

If the thought of having student loan debt worries you, you can talk to the UWS funding and advice team to make sure you have the facts before you make any decisions.

If you are worried about managing your money or debts that you already have, you will find lots of useful advice on our money and debt advice webpages.
