For the academic year 2022-23, the British Council has announced a new set of postgraduate (PG) scholarships for Indians in a variety of fields of study.
The commission, in partnership with the UK government’s GREAT Britain Campaign and in collaboration with UK universities, announced 20 GREAT scholarships for Indian students at 16 UK universities in subjects such as business, finance, humanities, psychology, entrepreneurship, design, marketing, human resources, and music.
Furthermore, there are 7 GREAT Scholarships for Justice and Law available for Indian students interested in studying human rights, criminal justice, or commercial law in the UK. Each scholarship is worth a minimum of £10,000 and is intended to cover tuition for a one-year postgraduate course.
Candidates should visit britishcouncil.in/study-uk/scholarships/great-scholarships for additional information on the scholarship’s eligibility criteria, as well as a full list of participating UK universities, available courses, and university-specific deadlines.
Moreover, the British Council has offered six fully-funded scholarships for Indian English instructors to undertake postgraduate English language teaching at two UK universities.
English teachers working in or with primary or secondary government schools in India are eligible for this chance. Three of the six scholarships are for a face-to-face/full-time MA degree at the University of Leeds. The other three scholarships are for the University of Stirling’s online/part-time MSc curriculum, which includes a two-week fully-funded residential visit to the university as part of the programme.
Before submitting the application, applicants must get an offer from the university.
