Funding an education in the UK is a major obstacle for many students, as often there are not many sources of funding available to help students support themselves. The International Financial Aid page from UK InternationalStudent.com has been designed to provide you with advice on where to find funding for studying in the UK.
We have compiled a list of universities in the UK that provide some form of financial assistance to international students who are currently or will be attending that university. The financial assistance will often vary in the form of scholarships or tuition assistance - so please see the list for further information about each school.
Scholarships are often the best source of financing for students looking to study in the UK. Most of the time the school you are attending will offer some form of financial aid, however there are numerous other sources available - and with our free scholarship search tool you can browse over 1,000 awards specifically for international students.
US Students can borrow money through the Foreign Enrolled Loan program and through the federal Stafford loan from InternationalStudentLoan.com, for study at long list of universities in the UK. Check out the list of universities in the UK where US students are eligible for a Foreign Enrolled Loan. Canadian students can also borrow money to study in the UK.
Navigating the maze that is international financial aid, and trying to find sources of funding can sometimes be the most difficult part of any quest to study internationally. We have developed a number of useful articles that provide practical help and advice for students looking to find financial aid.
One of the best ways to get help and advice is to talk to fellow international students, those that are currently studying abroad, but also from those who are also planning to study internationally. The Study in the UK forums offers a great place for you to post question, and read other questions that have been posted and answered by fellow students.
