International – Fees and Scholarships

Careful consideration of financial matters is an important part of planning your studies in the UK.

It is important you take the time to think how much money you will need over the duration of your course before you leave your home country. Planning ahead will contribute to the overall success of your studies.

You will need to take into account the cost of the following when planning your finances before traveling to the UK:

Tuition Fees

Tuition Fees for students ordinarily resident outside of the UK and EU are as follows:

  • Undergraduate Programmes: BA/BSc(Hons): £11, 500
  • Postgraduate Programmes: £12, 500

Scholarships

There are various scholarship schemes which may be able to assist you in meeting the overall cost of studying in the UK and further details can be found on The British Council website.

BGU also has some scholarships available to international students. The BGU International Scholarship is awarded as a fee-waiver of £2,000 to students undertaking eligible postgraduate taught programmes.

GREAT Scholarships

This year, in partnership with the British Council and the GREAT Britain Campaign, Bishop Grosseteste University will be offering a total of two scholarships to Chinese students applying for  Post Graduate study at BGU. Click here to find out more.

Commonwealth Shared Scholarships

BGU are proud to be part of the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme.  Commonwealth Shared Scholarships are for candidates from least developed, low, and lower middle income Commonwealth countries, for full-time study on our MA in Education with TEOSL programme.   This scheme is jointly funded by the BGU and the Commonwealth and Foreign Office.   The award will cover full international fees, return airfare from your home country to the UK, and a warm clothing allowance as well as a dissertation allowance and other allowances. A further £13,008 per annum in Session 2018/19 (to be updated for Session 2019/20) will also be awarded.  Applicants will need to apply to the University and via the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship portal.  Applicants will need to meet both the admissions criteria for the programme and the scheme.

  • Be a citizen of or be granted refugee status from an eligible Commonwealth country, or be a British Protected Person
  • Be permanently resident in an eligible Commonwealth Country
  • Be available to start your academic studies in the UK by the start of the UK academic year in September 2019
  • By September 2019, hold a First Degree of at least Upper Second Class (2:1) standard, or a Second Class degree and a relevant postgraduate qualification (usually a Master’s degree)
  • Applicants whose first language is not English must have already met the University’s English Language requirements.

Obtaining a Visa (‘Entry Clearance’)

If you are studying in the UK for six months or more, it is likely that you will need to apply for ‘entry clearance’ to study in the UK before you leave your home country. Information about applying for ‘entry clearance’ is available on the UK Borders Agency website. You can make an application at your local British Mission Overseas and details are available at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website.

When making your application, you will need to demonstrate you have enough money to pay for your tuition fees and living costs in the UK, as well as providing additional information and documentation. Full details can be found at the UK Borders Agency website.

More details can be found on the UKCISA website: Immigration, including visas.


Travel

As well as considering the cost of your journey to the UK, you also need to remember to make allowances for the cost of your travel within the UK.

You may wish to consider taking out travel insurance to cover yourself and your luggage. It is advisable to make a list of what you have packed so that if your luggage is lost you can account for all your belongings. If you have bought anything new before your journey remember to keep the proof of purchase as the insurance company may ask to see them. Endsleigh Insurance has a special international student policy, produced in conjunction with UKCOSA. For more information please visit their website or Tel: +44 (0)1482 445 034.


Living Costs

Lincoln is one of the cheaper cities in which to live in the UK. The UK Border Agency determines how much money you should have to support your living costs in the UK – this will form part of your application for a student visa. Details are available at the UK Border Agency website.
