Hyderabad: The British Council has announced the GREAT Britain Scholarships – India 2017 worth £ 1 million as part of the ‘GREAT BRITAIN’ campaign (“GREAT”) along with a new proposition ‘Study UK: Discover You’. 198 GREAT scholarships in subject areas ranging from art and design to engineering, law and management are on offer for students aspiring to study in the UK.
The new Education is part of the GREAT campaign and is designed to promote the best of British education overseas so that the UK is the first choice for the brightest and best students in the world.
The scholarships would entail:
- 198 scholarships will be on offer worth £ 1 million
- 40 UK universities are participating in this programme
- A total of 29 under-graduate and 169 post-graduate scholarships will be provided in engineering, law, art and design and management
The new proposition Study UK: Discover You focuses on the experiences, knowledge and confidence that students can gain from UK study, whether in the UK or overseas, or through distance learning, online provision, and other models.
It also highlights the aspects of the UK higher education system that make it world-renowned: its impeccable academic standards, its progressive and supportive teaching, its internationally recognised qualifications and its positive impact on graduate employability.
Mei-kwei Barker, Director, British Council, South India, said, “I’m delighted that over 20 UK universities are visiting Hyderabad, launching 198 scholarships with the British Council and demonstrating the importance UK universities put on attracting students from India.
Studying in the UK offers Indian students three things: a world-class education, being part of an international student body and the chance to work post study. Successful Indian students will join over 400,000 international students from 200 countries.
Such diversity and international connections bring new approaches and fresh thinking. We believe that the problems and challenges Indian students will be addressing over the next 50 years will need global solutions and that the unique experiences, knowledge, networks and confidence gained from a world-class UK higher education course will give students you the best platform to transform their lives, communities and country.”
“The Student satisfaction in the UK is high, with 91 per cent of international undergraduate students in the UK being happy with their experience in the UK. The UK is a world-leading research nation with researchers in the UK gaining more citations and usage per article, and writing more articles individually, than anywhere else in the world”, he added.
British Council is organising a Study UK: Discover You Exhibition in Hyderabad at Taj Vivanta today. in addition to this an a mobile app (Study UK Discover You Exhibition 2017) will be launched to help the students and parents plan their visit to the education exhibitions effectively.
