The University of York is a wonderful mixture of nationalities, cultures and faiths. They welcome the students from almost 100 countries and as a result the students gets the benefit of a truly international educational experience. They offer a number of scholarships for the overseas students each year as the International students form an integral part of the community on campus, and currently just over 20% of our students come from outside the UK. They are awarded on a competitive basis. Wherever the candidates may be from, if they are selected they can be sure that they will receive the very best support from the moment they inquire about the studying with the university until graduation and beyond. In 2013 / 14 a major scholarship will be provided which is up to a maximum of £ 4,526 for a non – laboratory programme and £ 5,883 for a laboratory programme. Some of the departments of this university also offer scholarships and financial prizes, so it would be a good idea to check the department web pages also.

The University of York also offers Studentships funded through the UK Research Councils. The funding arrangements differ between Research Councils so some Studentship is managed centrally and other through Departments. In previous years, the arrangements have been:
Central applications – AHRC, ESRC
Department applications – BBSRC, EPSRC, MRC, STFC
4. The White Rose Studentships
The University of York is part of the White Rose Universities Consortium with the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield. In support of this partnership, each University offers studentships through networks between the Universities. Students in receipt of these awards will be based at one of the institutions but have a co-supervisor at another institution in order to widen research links and interests.
5. The Departmental Scholarships
Many Departments fund their own Scholarships. For more information visit the web pages of the individual departments.
