The majority of london universities offer postgraduate scholarships for post graduate degrees and PhD courses but some also offer undergraduate scholarships for Bachelor degrees.
There are also external scholarship options which you can consider. Some governments and local organisations sponsor students from their countries or provide student loan options to study overseas.

Forms Scholarships may come; scholarships from Uk can come in the following forms

There are a number of different types of scholarships available. Some will be offered by your university, others will be from an external sponsor.

Part scholarships: These can range from small, one-off payments to covering your whole tuition fees. They do not usually include any support for your living costs.
Country-specific scholarships: Check the eligibility details carefully for each scholarship as some are for students from specific countries only. They can be full or part scholarships.

    The purpose of this blog is to discuss scholarships holistically and not to limit it to only opportunities to study abroad.In view of this, it is very important that i start by saying that a scholarship can also be granted to study in your domestic country or in your continent in our case AFRICA.Scholarships come in different ways to target different  students[e.g scholarships for science students], nationals[e.g Nigerian only], religions[e.g scholarships for evangelist ], professions[scholarship for accountants, doctors etc] and other target groups. Scholarship in your domestic country can be granted by government of your country or another country, Non Governmental Organizations[NGOs] like Action Aid, Cam fed, among others,international organization like UNESCO, UNICEF etc.

    The purpose of this blog is to update students on relevant information on scholarships so that we us AFRICANS can get the opportunity to study in reputable educational institutions anywhere in the world. Before i proceed i will like to make it clear that a scholarship can be gotten only when a person is aware of its existence .It cannot be gotten when you are not aware of it. Several bloggers have tried in diverse ways to bring information on scholarships to people but the INFORMATION GAP is still wide. Someone may ask a question like"what is an information gap?  An information gap under scholarships refers to the gap between a scholarship opportunity and its awareness .When more people are aware of scholarship opportunities we say there is a narrow gap. On the other hand, when few people are aware of the opportunities, we say the gap is wide .Ladies and gentlemen, in AFRICA information on scholarships do not reach out to every corner of the continent.It is against this background that i have taken it upon myself to feed you with information on scholarships.
