This year, in partnership with the British Council and the GREAT Britain Campaign, Staffordshire University are offering two international scholarships – one to applicants from China, and one to applicants from Malaysia. These scholarships are open to any passport-holding citizen of these countries applying for a postgraduate taught programme of study at Staffordshire University.

This scholarship is part of the “GREAT Scholarships 2020”, which has been launched by the British Council together with 36 UK universities to support more students to access excellent UK higher education opportunities.

The total value of the scholarship programme is over £800,000 and offers an exciting opportunity for international students from China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Turkey to get financial support to pursue postgraduate study in the United Kingdom. Students can apply for course in a range of subjects at the 36 participating institutions across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Staffordshire University’s participation in the GREAT Britain Campaign represents our commitment to providing world-class education and promoting the UK as a GREAT place to visit, study and do business.

Successful students will receive the funds as a £10,000 reduction in their tuition fees for their Master’s Taught course.
