International Student Postgraduate Scholarships at BU

While international students generally pay different fees than students in the UK, a broad range of financial support is also available to help offset costs and back foreign students who are just starting out professionally.

However, tuition fees to be paid for a postgraduate course will vary depending on the subject area the scholar will be studying and the type of postgraduate study they will undertake.

The following scholarships are available for international students looking to start their courses in September 2021 or January 2022:

BU Academic Excellence Scholarship

This opportunity provides a £3,500 tuition fee reduction fee for international students. As a requirement, applicants are expected to have a minimum of an upper second-class Honours degree from a UK university or equivalent.

BU Music Scholarship

For this postgraduate scholarship, foreign students must be able to demonstrate that they are talented musicians or vocalists. In addition, they have to prove that they have been involved in ensemble activity. The scholarship award is worth £600.

Chevening Scholarship Scheme
