GREAT scholarships

GREAT 2020 scholarships, offered in partnership with the British Council and the GREAT Britain Campaign, are exclusively for students domiciled in India, Indonesia and Malaysia starting a full-time postgraduate taught course in 2020–21. 

The scholarships provide a £10,000 tuition fee waiver for the first year of study on postgraduate taught courses. 

Scholarships are awarded to students domiciled in India, Indonesia and Malaysia who can demonstrate excellent academic achievement. Applicants also need to describe how they will stand out from the crowd as an ambassador for Sheffield Hallam University, the GREAT campaign and UK Higher Education during and after their studies.
