Scholarships are mostly awarded on basis of academic merit. They are very limited in number & goes to the best student with the best academic profile. At times other criteria like Work Experience, IELTS/TOEFL scores & Extra Curricular activities are also considered.

There are limited numbers of scholarships awarded by Universities as most of them are government-funded state universities so funds are limited. For example, many UK Universities offer scholarships for international students however these are subject-specific and awarded on a merit basis. Mostly the scholarships are given for Postgraduate &; Research programs however certain bursaries/scholarships are available for undergraduate courses also. Amount of bursary/ scholarship as well as number and closing date of applications for an award varies from university to university.
