These types of grants are solely based on the grades you are going to get on your exams. You are going to study at, the course, but just to let you know: you have to be way above average to be considered. Second types of scholarships, are scholarships based on the country you are from. If you are coming from a developing country, and you never studied abroad and you are willing to come back to your home country to make a positive impact, many UK universities will consider to sponsor you. You can even get the whole Master’s course paid for you. For example, check out this scholarship from the University of Manchester that sponsor students from African countries and can pay for such things such as visa costs and flights to the UK.
Third scholarships available, are scholarships based on the school you are currently studying at. For example, many schools have ties to UK universities. School-specific grants are usually given to students with exceptional grades. You have to check with your school. If they have any links with British universities if they work with these universities and can help you get this scholarship. Also if you are choosing school right now, it’s probably worth asking them. If they have any links to British universities.
The fourth type of scholarships available is course-specific. So there are some scholarships available from universities overall, but there are also separate schools within universities, such as the school of Engineering or Business Studies, that provide specific scholarships. For example, the University of Bath, the faculty of Engineering, offers 8 scholarships for students studying a Masters-degree. You can get around a 10 % discount on your fees. But that’s specifically if you are going to study Engineering. And the final type of scholarship that I know about, are scholarships based on Sports Achievement. What I mean by Sports Excellence is some kind of achievement you have on a national or international level in any sport. The university will consider if your achievement is significant enough for a scholarship but do keep in mind if you have some exceptional talent, if you are good at any sport, you should use it to get a scholarship.
Some people just apply for university, and then check: oh, are there any scholarships? If scholarship and funding help is super important to you, do your research beforehand, you have to research whether the university has any scholarships that are suitable for you. So do your research, check the criteria, are your grades good enough? are you from the country the scholarship requires you to be from? are you meeting the deadlines? So many universities offer very specific unique scholarships, for example for a woman from a commonwealth country that wants to study physics. Perhaps this is YOU, but how would you know about this scholarship available if you never did your research? You could be a perfect candidate for a scholarship, that you never found.
