The UK is home to some of the most prestigious universities in the world. In fact, 4 of the best universities in the world are from the UK. Everyone dreams of attending the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge but not everyone makes the cut. Not being able to get into a world-class university on merit is one thing, but not being able to attend these universities because of a lack of financial resources is not fair. We, at UniAcco, deeply sympathise with students who have to shelf their dreams of attaining a world-class education because of their poor financial background. 

But not anymore! UniAcco is proud to announce a scholarship for meritorious students looking to pursue their further education in the UK. Sayantan Biswas, Co-Founder of UniAcco explains, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. We want students from all walks of life to be able to live their dream of attending their preferred university.” Stay tuned to know more about this scholarship. 

Different Types Of Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded to meritorious students to help them fund their studies. They can be partially or fully paid, depending on the criteria, course and the institution. Many scholarships are offered by the government as well as private and public institutions. There are several scholarships for students offered by top universities in the UK that take care of tuition fees, either partially or fully. 

Criteria For Applying For Scholarships

Chiefly, most scholarships depend on academic performance. However, there are some scholarships given to students on the basis of sports, extracurricular activities, volunteering work, etc. You must remember that every scholarship has its own set of unique criteria. Some scholarships can be bagged by merely applying for it. But there are some where you may have to fulfil several other conditions. For instance, in research centric programs, you might have to submit written assignments. The best way to get some clarity on the criteria of a particular scholarship is by contacting your university admission centre.

Amount Of Money Available Through Scholarship

Every scholarship has its own set of rules, and of course, a certain amount of money available to students. There are some scholarships that take care of 100% of the tuition fee besides covering a part of your living expenditures. As you’d expect, getting these types of scholarships is quite tough because of the high competition rate among students. Historically, Government scholarships attract more competition than university scholarships, so focus your attention there.
