This initiative is designed to provide financial support to Tier 2 university students in India pursuing postgraduate studies in the UK. Scholarships worth up to £3000 are available for Indian students who are looking to enroll in January 2024 intakes.

The scholarship is open to Indian students from Tier 2 universities who have completed their undergraduate degrees either overseas or in the UK and are self-funding their postgraduate studies.
