It's no secret that education in the UK and England , being an example of the most prestigious education, is also very expensive. The cost of programs in the most advanced and rating institutions (usually state boarding schools) is much higher than the cost of education in Russian schools. Are there ways to cut financial costs and get a scholarship or a discount?
Scholarships in England
There are special scholarships for foreign students and British subjects in most educational institutions. Scholarships are awarded to students who have shown outstanding results in one or more fields:
- Academic studies
- Scientific research and projects
- Extra-curricular creative activity.
Talented, persistent and diligent students can apply for personal scholarships and grants, which cover 20 to 50% of the cost of study (and in some cases, more). There is also a support system for low-income students who also demonstrate excellent results in school or sports. You can become a member of a school or national sports team, a successful musical or vocal team, to demonstrate high results in one or another field of art - show yourself with the best of luck!
Schools of England offering scholarships include Bellerbys Colleges, Abbey Group, CATS Colleges and many others who are ready to consider a promising and talented student child.
Scholarships are most often approved through competitive selection, with tests and examinations being conducted in advance. For example, if you are applying for a scholarship or a discount on a course of study in grade 12, examinations and selection are expected for 11 years. If you are applying for a scholarship already upon admission, prepare all the materials confirming your progress and talent, anything that might interest the foreign school. Such materials and documents include:
- A report card with excellent grades for the last periods of study
- Recommendations and characteristics from teachers, director, class teacher
- Honors and awards
- Letters of thanks
- Certificates of awarding other prizes, grants and awards, etc.
Individual grants are awarded to students who are engaged in scientific research in a close and in-depth manner. Many educational institutions support scientific innovation programs: a student who has provided an interesting development, a scientific project or a deep profile study, can receive an education grant from a school, program or foundation that oversees this direction.
