The UK is an incredibly popular study destination for international students, and looking at the figures, it isn't difficult to work out why! Read on to find out more about ApplicationUK, and how you could be one of three lucky students in with the chance of winning £1,000 to study in the UK.


ApplicationUK scholarship

We are offering a £1,000 scholarship for prospective postgraduate students who use ApplicationUK for their postgraduate applications to universities in the UK. This is a great opportunity to start off your university studies with a bit of extra cash – it certainly makes a difference! This is on top of our existing £300 enrolment bursary, available for all students who successfully acquire an offer to study a postgraduate degree in the UK, via ApplicationUK.


Entry requirements

Submit a short video or essay answering the question "Why Do You Want to Study in the UK?". The essay must be at least 500 words, and the video should be no longer than 2 minutes. There are no other restrictions or constraints on how you structure or present your answer. Be as creative as you like. In fact, the more creative, the better!


Out of the three scholarships available, two are reserved exclusively for students referred to us through our Student Ambassadors. When you sign up with your student ambassador, you will be given a unique code. Make sure you tell us this when you send in your submissions. It could mean you are more likely to win!


In order to qualify for the scholarship, you must have applied to your chosen university through ApplicationUK, and be in receipt of an offer. The deadline for essay and video entries is 11pm on 31st August 2017, and winners will be announced by 31st October 2017 when we have the full information on students enrolled on master's courses in the UK through ApplicationUK.
