With over 164 universities and 485,645 international students studying in the UK, it is easily one of the most popular destinations when it comes to higher education. However, with the high cost of living and strenuous requirements, it can be very difficult to make the move without support

Here is a list of fully-funded scholarships that will make your dreams for studying in the UK achievable:
