International scholarships

International Development awards international scholarships worth £2,000 for the first year of study to successful international applicants. Our international scholarships are partial scholarships. This means that you must make sure you can cover the outstanding amount for fees and living expenses yourself. 

Who can apply?

You can apply for an International Scholarship if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • you are an international student (classified as 'overseas fee status')
  • you have an offer to study an Undergraduate or Postgraduate degree course (September intake only)
  • you are not currently enroled on a Kingston University course

When can I apply?

  • Applications for September 2019 intake have now closed.
  • The online application form for September 2020 will be available on this page in February 2020 (Deadline to apply: 31 May 2020)

How are International Scholarships awarded?

International Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of the following:

  • Academic merit (your previous grades)
  • What you expect to gain from your Kingston degree course
  • What you expect to do after you complete your Kingston degree (future goals)

What documents do I need to submit?

You must submit all of the following documents as part of your online application:

  • Kingston University offer email (conditional or unconditional)
  • Academic Reference (from previous teacher or employer)
  • Personal Statement (maximum 500 words)
  • Academic transcript (if your final transcript is not available until after the 31 May, submit your most recent transcript; we will make a decision based on the grades you provide, not your expected grades)

You will be able to upload supporting documents after you submit your application up until midnight 31 May 2019. Incomplete applications will not be processed, and we cannot accept any supporting documents by email (all supporting documents must be uploaded as part of your International Scholarship application form). 

What happens after I apply?

  • You will receive a confirmation email as soon as you submit your application
  • If any supporting documents are missing, you will receive 'chasing emails' (remember, we must receive all of the required supporting documents by 31 May or your application will not be processed)
  • We will email all applicants with a final decision by mid-July
