Funding for international students
The Almanea Scholarship for science
Almanea Scholarship for science is dedicated in memory of Nahid Almanea. This will be awarded
to one full-time international Taught Masters student in our Faculty of Science and
Health who demonstrates a global outlook and shares the University's commitment to
widening access to education across the world. The scholarship will be awarded as a
full fee waiver for the period of study, plus an allowance of £10,000 towards living costs.
Vice-Chancellor’s International Scholarships
international scholarships are specifically for non-EU students. Awards
will be made on the basis of academic merit, and all applications for
relevant courses will automatically be considered for a scholarship award.
The scholarship is off-set against your tuition fees.

Our new Academic Excellence International Masters Scholarship supports
overseas students who are funding their own studies at the University of Essex.
We are offering a range of scholarships worth up to £4,000 if your grades
in your first degree meet the required high academic standard.
Your local British Council will have
information on any scholarship schemes for which you are eligible to apply.

foreign school and federal direct loans are available to US students
studying at our University. For further

Many national governments provide scholarships for students wishing to
study overseas. You should enquire at your own Ministry of Education in good
time, as most sponsors have formal application procedures. The amount of
funding available will vary according to your country.
