The scholarship programme offers financial support of a minimum of £10,000 to students pursuing a one-year postgraduate study in the UK. Students can apply for courses in a range of subjects, at the 49 institutions across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The AUB GREAT Scholarships are open to applicants from China, Kenya, India and Pakistan for all AUB's Master's courses. We have one award available for each country and all awards will be paid as a tuition fee deduction.
