International students (outside the European Union) are advised to apply early (October – February) in the academic year to ensure consideration for available scholarships (ORS, International Office). However, as competition for international scholarships is very fierce students are advised also to seek out scholarship opportunities from within their own countries, or agencies such as the World Bank, British Council or ACU. Please see the International Office website for postgraduate funding opportunities for international applicants.
International students should contact their nearest British Council Office or embassy for advice on financial assistance.
DFID Awards are available for international applicants from developing countries. See the Association of Commonwealth Universities Web pages International applicants for information on DFID awards.

International and EU students
