University of Aberdeen has scholarships for EU students
EU students who want to study at the University of Aberdeen in the academic year 2021/22 will be eligible for new scholarships of up to £8,000 a year.
The EU Scholarships will be open to all eligible EU students applying to study on undergraduate and postgraduate courses at the University of Aberdeen in September 2021 and January 2022, for the duration of their studies. They have been introduced as a response to Brexit to bring EU students’ fees broadly into line with tuition fees for students based in England, Wales or Northern Ireland who choose to study at the University of Aberdeen. It is hoped that the EU Scholarships will help mitigate the impact of Brexit on EU students to study at the University of Aberdeen.
Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Aberdeen, Professor George Boyne, says, “The announcement of these new scholarships specifically for EU students is testament to how dearly we hold our long-forged connections with the rest of the continent, and our deep appreciation of the rich cultural diversity that EU students contribute to our community.”
Professor Boyne continues, “When it was founded in 1495, the University looked to Europe for its inspiration. Today around a quarter of our undergraduate students and academics come from the European Union, and we are proud to have one of the highest proportions of EU students in our undergraduate population of any university in the UK. Regardless of the outcome of Brexit, our international outlook will remain as strong as ever. The University has always looked outwards to the world, and we remain committed to building global partnerships and welcoming international students and staff as valuable members of our community.”
The EU Scholarships are available to all eligible EU undergraduate and postgraduate taught masters students beginning their studies in September 2021 and January 2022. EU students beginning their studies before July 2021 will still be considered ‘home fee status’ students.
