Great India Scholarships

AUB and the British Council are teaming up again in 2018 to offer significant scholarships for Indian undergraduate students.

This is part of the Great Scholarships Scheme which you can read all about here.

We are offering three scholarships of £5,000 each for any of our BA courses, plus two scholarships of £5,000 each for any of our MA courses.

How to apply

To apply, you’ll need to meet the following criteria:

  • Indian citizen or enrolled in an education institution in India
  • Holding a conditional or unconditional offer of a place at AUB for a full-time BA or MA

To be awarded the scholarship, you’ll need to have received an unconditional offer, accepted the offer and paid a deposit of one terms course fees.

You can apply for a Great India Scholarship using this form.

When filling out the form, you’ll need to supply a link to an online portfolio and write a statement explaining why you deserve the scholarship (focus on your achievements, not your financial hardship).


Great India Scholarship applications will open on January 15th 2018 and the deadline for entries is July 1st 2018.

Applications for September 2018 entry to AUB courses are open now and you can get details about how to apply here.

You need to have made a full application by June 1st 2018 to guarantee that you’ll have a decision on an offer of a place by July 1st (see entry criteria above).

If you’re seeing this page for the first time after June 1st, contact the International Team to request permission to apply and we’ll confirm that you’ll still be considered for the scholarship.

Scholarship winners will be notified by July 15th, 2018. Due to the volume of entries, we will be unable to notify those who have been unsuccessful.

Other discounts and scholarships

Details of other scholarships and discounts are available here and in this International Fees, Discounts and Scholarships booklet.

Do note that the Early Payment Discount will be available to the recipient of the Great India Scholarship, but the discount will be applied to the net fees paid, not the full tuition fee amount.

Email the International Team with any questions.

*Scholarships come in the form of discounts from the tuition fees and are not cash awards. Scholarships are valid for September 2018 entry only and cannot be deferred.
