Undergraduate Scholarships for Africans to study in UK Britain

University College London (UCL) and the Africa Educational Trust (AET) have agreed to collaborate in a scheme to enable students from Africa, who are financially unable to study in the UK, to pursue full-time undergraduate studies at UCL.

With this scheme UCL supports the aims of AET to help the people of Africa to help themselves.

Under the scheme, two full bursaries are available annually for AET-nominated students who have accepted offers of places at UCL.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Be a national of any African country (including Madagascar), currently living in an African country, and have one or both parents living in an African country, or are orphaned;
  • Be currently attending school or have completed school in an African country;
  • Be liable to pay tuition fees at the rate applicable to Overseas students, as assessed by UCL;
  • Lack the financial means necessary to pursue undergraduate degree studies at UCL.

Selection Criteria:

Scholarships are awarded based on the aims of the scholarship.

Benefits and Duration:

Each bursary will consist of full tuition fees and a maintenance allowance for the duration of the student’s programme of study, as well as economy air travel to/from the UK at the beginning and end of the bursary-holder’s degree programme.

In addition, the bursary includes an allowance (on request and up to a specified maximum sum per bursary holder) to permit two members of the bursary holder’s family to attend their graduation ceremony.

Deadline: 15 March each year
