In collaboration with the UK’s GREAT Britain campaign, the British Council is offering up to 35 full tuition scholarships over a broad range of subjects. This is a great opportunity for Indian students wishing to access a UK university education.

Arts University Bournemouth will be able to nominate three of our applicants for the scholarship. The British Council Panel will then decide who will win the 35 GREAT scholarships, from the pool of all nominations from UK universities.

AUB has no control over who will ultimately win these scholarships, we can only nominate three of our applicants for the award/s.

Find out more information on the British Council’s website.
