Aberystwyth University has PG scholarships for Malaysian students
Aberystwyth University has partnered up with the British Council to offer scholarship opportunities to postgraduate students from Malaysia.
The ‘GREAT Scholarships 2019 – Malaysia’ scheme encourages and supports students from Malaysia to pursue higher education in the UK - and Aberystwyth University is one of five UK universities to have joined the scheme, which is jointly funded by the UK government’s GREAT Britain Campaign, the British Council, and the participating UK universities.
The inaugural GREAT Scholarships 2019 – Malaysia scheme is offering 10 taught postgraduate scholarships to qualifying Malaysian students starting their postgrad program in autumn 2019, and is worth a total of almost £100,000.
Vice-Chancellor of Aberystwyth University, Professor Elizabeth Treasure, explains, “Aberystwyth University has had strong academic links with Malaysia for many years and the GREAT Scholarships scheme will further strengthen the unique bond between us. With our long-standing reputation for teaching excellence and world-leading research, we are delighted to be part of this inspiring collaboration with the British Council and look forward to welcoming postgraduate students from Malaysia to join our international academic community.”
Director of the British Council in Malaysia, Sarah Deverall, says, “Postgraduate studies in the UK are more appealing as the duration of the programs are relatively short. Most UK postgraduate degrees take only one year to complete, making the overall cost much more affordable compared to other countries. Malaysia is a key country for the five universities that have chosen to partner with the inaugural GREAT Scholarships 2019 – Malaysia. These universities have been welcoming Malaysian students to their campuses for years and they value the diversity and academic contribution that Malaysian students bring.”
The other UK universities offering scholarship opportunities under this new scheme are Queen's University Belfast, the University of Kent, the University of Stirling, and the University of Warwick.
