Postgraduate scholarships for students from Australia and New Zealand
The British Council
The British Council often offers or administers scholarships aimed at students from specific countries or regions in partnership with important organisations and bodies in the UK or in the countries where it has a presence.
In your region, the Landerer UK Arts Scholarship aims to strengthen Anglo-Australian ties by funding an outstanding Australian arts and creative industries student aged 30 or under to study in the UK.
Administered by the British Council in Australia, it provides A$30,000 towards the tuition fees of a master’s-level arts and design course of up to 12 months’ duration or towards the cost of living, course books and materials while in the UK.
European Union scholarships, grants and exchange programmes
European Union scholarships, grants and exchange programmes provide many opportunities for students from your region to come and study with participating UK institutions.
Check to see which UK institutions participate as not all will necessarily do so.
