The application deadline has now passed

Study at a UK top 20 university in the heart of the UK with a prestigious GREAT Scholarship, covering £10,000 towards tuition fees.

We're offering four scholarships of £10,000 towards full-time masters tuition fees for international students from selected countries. These are awarded in partnership with the British Council and the GREAT Britain campaign.

For students beginning masters courses at the University of Nottingham in 2022, we will award:

  • two scholarships for students from Indonesia
  • two scholarship for students from Mexico

This scholarship scheme is part of the GREAT Scholarships 2022 campaign, launched by the British Council together with 41 UK universities to support postgraduate students from selected countries to access world-class UK higher education opportunities.


To apply for this scholarship, you must:

  • be a national (passport holder) of Indonesia or Mexico
  • be classed as an overseas student for fee purposes
  • hold an offer to start a full-time masters (excluding MRes) at the University of Nottingham's UK campuses in September 2022

You may also qualify to apply for one our regional postgraduate scholarships. It's a good idea to apply for these as well as the GREAT Scholarship, but if you are awarded a GREAT Scholarship you will not be selected for a regional scholarship as well. Full details for the regional scholarships in 2022 will be confirmed soon.

Application criteria

You will be asked questions about your achievements, study plans and reasons for choosing the University. Make sure you have enough time to prepare strong answers. We will assess your responses and academic merit when making scholarship decisions.

Scholarships will only be awarded to students who accept their offer to study with us. You do not need to respond to your offer before applying for this scholarship. This scholarship is not available to students who have already started their course.

If you are awarded this scholarship, we will deduct it from the tuition fees charged to you during your masters degree course, with the scholarship amount split between your tuition fee instalments. The scholarship will not be paid to you directly.

This award cannot be combined with another University of Nottingham regional scholarship or an International Sporting Excellence Award. However, you may also be able to receive a subject scholarship from your academic school, a sports scholarship package, or an external scholarship from your country, where the combined total does not exceed 100% of tuition fees. This could include, for example, an award from Nottingham University Business School and/or the government or other funding body in your country.
