If you’re in the middle of applying to study abroad, consider these UK scholarships for international students – even Oxbridge institutions. Oxbridge consists of the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge and marks the two oldest and most prestigious higher education institutions in the United Kingdom.
Their long-standing reputation and prestige also mean that graduates of both universities are often highly sought after by both employers and academics, making education at such institutions attractive to most international students.
Now it’s no secret that getting an offer from an Oxbridge university is tough. Oxford University typically has a 17% acceptance rate, with Cambridge slightly higher at 21%.
These rates are higher than some Ivy League universities like Harvard and Columbia — which typically accept only about 5% of their applicants. However, Oxbridge universities carry out a thorough screening process for their applicants, meaning that you would have to go through several rounds of assignments and interviews before being awarded an offer.
Be a citizen of one of the Chevening-eligible countries or territories.
Have at least two years worth of accumulated work experience (equivalent to 2,800 hours).
Complete all components of an undergraduate degree that will enable them to gain entry to a postgraduate program at a UK university at the time the applicant applies. Typical entry requirements for most UK Masters programs require the applicant to have obtained the equivalent of a 2:1 degree (Upper Second Class) in the UK. However, this may vary depending on the applicant’s course and choice of university.
Applicants must return to their country of citizenship for at least two years after the end of their grant.
The applicant must apply to three eligible UK university courses and have received an unconditional offer from one of the courses by 14 July 2022.
