The British Council is a British organisation specialising in international educational and cultural opportunities. It is registered as a charity both in England and Wales and Scotland. Founded in 1934 as the British Committee for Relations with Other Countries, and granted a royal charter by King George VI in 1940.
In partnership with the British Council and the GREAT Britain Campaign, the University of Derby is offering scholarships to international students applying for postgraduate courses starting in September 2023. The GREAT Scholarships programme, launched by the British Council together with 41 UK universities, supports postgraduate students to access world-class UK higher education opportunities.
The scholarship programme offers financial support of £11,000 to eligible students pursuing one year postgraduate study at the University of Derby.
Applications for the British Council GREAT scholarship should be made after you have received an offer, using the form below. As part of your application you will need to include an essay of no more than 500 words about a topic you have studied previously and why you found it interesting. This topic should be related to or have inspired you to apply for your chosen degree programme. This essay will be part of the shortlisting criteria, alongside previous academic achievement, and the potential you show.
Shortlisted applicants may be asked to attend a video interview with the selection committee.
The deadline for applications for this scholarship is 23:59 BST on 1 June 2023.
The outcome of applications will be announced after 15 June 2023.
