The tuition fees, as well as, other expense varies across courses, schools and countries. Even the scholarships vary across courses and countries in terms of acceptance and the expense that they cover. . Here I have created a list of top 5 scholarships and what all do they cover

 

Chevening Scholarship 

Funded by the UK government, the scholarship rewards up to £18,000 (INR 18,00,000). The acceptance rate for the Chevening Scholarship is around 3%. As an example in 2019, of the 63000 applicants, only 1800 were awarded the scholarship. 

 

Fulbright Nehru Master’s fellowship 

The scholarship covers - a J-1 USA student visa support facility, economic class flight fares (round trip from the student’s hometown to the institution in the USA), 75%tuition fees, accident and sickness coverage as per the U.S. Government guidelines. 

The scholarship is awarded to just 4000 international students each year. 

 

Vanier Graduate Scholarships

Funded by the Canadian government, this scholarship grants CAD 50000 which is roughly 30 Lakhs INR. While the number of scholarships granted is 166, they have a pretty competitive review process, making it tough for you to get into that number of 166 selected students. 

Commonwealth Scholarship 

Apart from the tuition fees, it covers airfare from the home country to the UK and return. The UK government also gives you a living allowance worth GBP 1084 per month. But the catch here is that this scholarship is awarded to ONLY 700 students each year, and the no. of applications is easily 90 Thousand to a Lakh.  

Charles Wallace India Trust Scholarship

Only 10 long term grants are awarded each year which cover tuition fees, and will also contribute GBP 600 towards your international travel. But do you see, just 10 grants a year! 

 

As mentioned, the acceptance rate of these scholarships is pretty low and you need to be double sure if your profile matches their requirements. Different countries have different scholarships and not all schools in a country would accept a single scholarship. The point is, the scholarships accepted would be varying across countries, schools, programs etc. 

So factors like your desired country, school, program, all of it will help you find the right scholarship for you. 

Why don’t you share your profile and preferences with me? It will then help me share relevant and appropriate information with you.

 As an alumnus who pursued a master's degree in the UK, I understand the importance of English language proficiency in the admissions process. While a good IELTS score is a crucial requirement for international students, it's not the sole factor considered by UK universities. Most institutions have additional admission criteria, such as academic qualifications, letters of recommendation, and statement of purpose. Some programs may also require standardized test scores like the GRE or GMAT, depending on the field of study. Therefore, while a strong IELTS score demonstrates proficiency in English, it's essential to ensure that you meet all the admission requirements for your desired program. It's advisable to thoroughly research the admission criteria of the universities you're interested in and reach out to their admissions offices for clarification on any additional requirements. By presenting a well-rounded application that addresses all criteria, you can enhance your chances of securing admission to a master's program in the UK.
