Study in the UK for Free with these Scholarships




Studying in the UK can change your life. But let's be honest, it’s pretty expensive and if you don’t plan it right, it can make a serious dent in your savings or set you up for massive loans.


Which is why it’s all the more important for you to plan your study to the T to try and save as much as possible.

One way of doing this is to get a part-time job while working in the UK which will help with daily expenses.

Another way of doing this is by getting a scholarship and the brilliant part about this is that some scholarships pay for your tuition but others even cover the cost of travel, visas, and cover your living expenses in the UK.


Today, we’re covering 10 such scholarships that are open for graduate and post graduate courses in the UK.


And some of them have deadlines approaching pretty soon so I’d step on it if I were you.

Now sometimes when you apply for a student visa you have to give an interview for your visa in which you’ll be asked a bunch of questions. And before you attend that, I definitely suggest you watch this video.


Until next time!
