Scholarship opportunities

The UK is known for its quality higher studies and an interdisciplinary approach towards education. Be it the sciences, engineering or social sciences, it has a wide range of courses available at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and higher education levels.
It has a personal tutor or mentorship system, under which students get a guide within the university to discuss academic progress as well as general welfare, which helps to create a bonding and make students feel at home.
The UK is home to leading institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, etc, which rank amongst the top 200 in the world. Popular universities include Manchester, Southampton, Sheffield, Leicester, Sussex, Glasgow, Strathclyde and Bath. With the explosion of educational sanctions in the early 90s, the UK has seen about 60 new universities, notable amongst which are Kingston, Brighton, Coventry and Westminster.
