FUNDING FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

There is no UK funding for international students, therefore you are expected to be fully self-supporting whilst studying here

BRITISH COUNCIL

The British Government offers some awards to international students through the British Council. You should apply for these through British Council Offices in your home country.

INTERNATIONAL BURSARY

Global Outreach: Access to Learning (GOAL) is a bursary scheme that commenced in September 2010. GOAL Awards are for students who are nationals of middle and low income countries, as defined principally by the United Nations Human Development Index. Visit our International Office for the list of countries.

The GOAL Award is available to self-funding, undergraduate students studying on a full-time course with annual fees of £10,000 or above and all full-time postgraduate taught and research students. The award is only for international (non-EU) students commencing courses from September 2010, for the first year of study at Portsmouth (and is not available to students who have previously undertaken other courses here).

The GOAL Award takes the form of a 10% fee reduction, effective at the time of registration and will only apply to your first year of study. It cannot be combined with any other scholarship, discount or fee offer, except the 2% ‘prompt payment discount’ for students paying their fees in full at the start of the academic session.

EU AND INTERNATIONAL EMERGENCY FUND

The emergency fund for EU and international students was established to assist those who encounter unforeseen financial difficulties whilst studying. Applications are assessed on an individual basis and awards will only be made in cases where you can clearly demonstrate your unforeseen circumstance.
